Summary / introduction:

National Highway Sector Scheme 12D for installing and removing temporary traffic management on rural and urban roads.

Target audience:

All Registered Traffic Management Operatives (RTMO) as described in Sector Scheme Document 12D who wish to add this category to their 12D card. To become a registered 12D M3 Operative, the learner must have completed the 12D T1/T2 training course and either be in the process of being registered as a 12D M2 Operative or already be a registered 12D M2 Operative prior to applying for registration.
Following completion of the 12D T3 training course the learner will need to undertake a set of on site assessments as prescribed in the Sector Scheme Document to obtain the category. The assessments must be completed within a two year period starting from the date of passing the training.
Each learner must be assessed individually – “whilst undertaking traffic management operations, including assessment of capability, unregistered Traffic Management Operatives shall at all times be supervised by an appropriately registered Traffic Management Operative on a one to one basis” This cannot be the assessor – NHSS12D Sector Scheme Document. Minimum competency requirements for gang sizes are shown on page 23 of the document – these must be maintained whilst assessments are being carried out. Learners not being assessed must remain in a safe location.
