About the Course
The Yellow Card Implement Traffic Control Plans Skill Set Set is a course designed by the RMS to provide a nationally recognised, competency-based framework for training those who need to control and direct the flow of traffic by implementing Traffic Control Guidance Plans , or TCGPs.
The course offered here at 123 Training Solutions prepares traffic controllers for work in live traffic situations, where they will both implement existing TCGPs for the worksite, or change and adapt those plans if live traffic or weather conditions require it.

Where does White Card fit in?
It is usually best to do the White Card course before doing either of the traffic control courses. That said, you do not technically need a White Card to undertake a traffic control course.
You will definitely need a white card before you can start working on an active traffic control job site. This is because traffic control work is considered to be construction work, and to work on a construction site you are required to hold a white card.
Maximum class size for this course is 16
Prior to commencing the course, students will need:
- A Unique Student Identifier (USI)
- A SafeWork NSW White Card - we can help with this course as well
- Photo ID with your current address
- An understanding of English - both written and spoken
For students that need to get a white card first - have a look at our white card page for dates, and additional details.
