STMS 2/3 - Refresher Practising

How Will I Be Qualified?

On every 2nd application (6 years) a already-qualified Level 2/3 STMS must undertake a mandatory “on road Re-Assessment”.

This Level 2/3 Practical on-road Re-Assessment involves installing, maintaining and removing Temporary Traffic Management (TTM) on Level 2 and Level 3 Roads. The assessment involves the conduct of various duties associated with being an STMS. This ranges from inductions to TMP review to installation of Temporary Traffic Management (TTM) in a practical setting.

Appropriate qualified Level 2/3 STMS candidates can undertake this re-assessment process at any time simply by registering under the purpose-built Traffic Management Academy Practical Re-Assessment Online Portal. The re-assessment portal was designed to upload all required modules in a PDF format at least 5-10 working days prior to the approved re-assessment date. It allows for drag and drop functions of the PDF documents and since this is a life system, all work submitted can be viewed immediate by the Assessor to allow for grading and feedback to the applicant of work submitted.
