BTEC Highway Maintenance

Course Overview

A four-day course providing a comprehensive study of all aspects of the maintenance of highways, including the inspection and measurement of the conditions of roads, the maintenance of flexible roads, rigid roads, footways, signs and marking, highway structures and the problems of cyclic maintenance and emergency works.

The course is taught as four separate modules, with one day of classroom based tuition for each module. At the end of each module an assignment will be set. This should be completed by the student and submitted by the start of the next module. There will be around six weeks between the modules, which allow students sufficient time to complete the assignment and hand it in before the next module commences.


The course offers a BTEC Level 4 Certificate of Achievement for students through completion of a series of assignments that will be assessed by TMS and City of Bath College. This course can also contribute to the achievement of a Professional Diploma in Highway Engineering by further study of Highways and Transportation topics from the TMS and Bath College training programme.

Students who attend the course and do not successfully complete the assignments will receive a certificate of attendance providing all four modules/course days are attended.

Students are not permitted to attend individual modules: they must attend all four dates advertised.

A joint TMS/Bath College Certificate/Diploma will also be issued to students completing the course.
