what is a level 1 traffic control course?

The Level 1 Traffic Control course is a stepping stone to becoming a Level 1 STMS. TC courses are theory-based and teach you the basics to temporary traffic management.

Duration: 8 hours (including breaks)
Method of delivery: Classroom workshop, PowerPoint Presentation
Tests: 4 Open book tests (20 minutes each)

Each test covers a different section of CoPTTM (Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management), attendees are required to use CoPTTM to answer test questions.

Attendees will learn the basics of Temporary Traffic Management: 

  • Section A: Introduction and General 
  • Section B: Equipment 
  • Section C: Static Operations 
  • Section D: Mobile Operations 

You must achieve an average of 60% over all four tests to pass the course and become a TC. 

Once the TC course has finished you will fill out your registration form and have your photo taken. You will then be issued an ID card from NZTA with your own NZTA ID number. This can take 4-6 weeks to arrive. 


NZTA Unit Standards: 

In addition to the NZTA TC Course there are NZQA unit standards that require demonstrating a level of competency candidates will physically implement TTM.
