This refresher course is intended for local authority highway inspectors who have completed the initial highway inspectors’ course within the last five years and want to renew their qualification for a further five years
The importance of training to achieve and maintain an adequate level of competence in all areas of highway asset management, including highway inspection, is stressed in the current Code of Practice, Well-managed Highway Infrastructure, and the associated document, Highway Infrastructure Asset Management. The credibility of highway inspectors as witnesses in criminal or civil proceedings may depend on producing evidence of current qualifications.
This two-day refresher course is intended for local authority highway inspectors who have completed the initial highway inspectors’ course within the last five years and want to renew their qualification for a further five years. It provides a reminder of the knowledge and skills already gained on the initial course, and an update on recent changes in guidance and developments in procedures. The course is delivered by experienced professionals in the field of highway safety and highway maintenance.
