Traffic Management Operative (TMO) Non-Practicing Workshop

Book your Traffic management operative (TMO) workshop online. This workshop replaces the Traffic Controller (TC) workshop.

How it works:

The TMO warrant enables the holder, once briefed by the STMS in charge, to: 

On category A roads: 

  • Undertake a roadside activity where the vehicle is legally parked and accessed from the non-traffic side

On category A and B roads: 

  • Set up, maintain, and remove TTM for roadside or shoulder activities where all TTM equipment (including TTM vehicles) is outside the edgeline (or edge of seal if there is no edgeline) 
  • Maintain TTM at an existing static worksite when the in charge STMS is away from the worksite. The STMS must return to the worksite to carry out any required changes 
  • Complete inspection activities 
    Note: the TMO warrant enables the holder to be in charge of and undertake inspection activities. They will not have to report to an STMS for the inspection activity.

Any worker who will be required to: 

  • Mind a worksite in the absence of the STMS 
  • Set up a worksite where TTM is clear of the live lane
