Highway Safety Inspectors' Modular Training (LANTRA & IHE Approved)

Course Overview

The four-day modular training course incorporates all the changes in the published code of practice, Well-managed Highway Infrastructure (2016), and the Highway Inspector Competence Framework (2019). The course is approved by the IHE Inspectors Board, as well as having the accreditation of LANTRA Awards. The course is intended for both newly-appointed and experienced local authority highway safety inspectors. It provides the knowledge and skills necessary to fulfil the role of highway safety inspector and provides an opportunity for delegates to demonstrate their competency and achieve a nationally recognised qualification.

The four-day course follows the IHE approved syllabus and is delivered in seven distinct taught modules, each concluded by a short, written assessment. In addition, delegates’ ability to identify, evaluate and report highway defects will be assessed in a practical scenario.

Aims and Objectives

This course is designed to fulfil the initial training requirements of local authority highway inspectors and to satisfy the requirements of the IHE certification scheme, which will ultimately allow successful delegates to be entered on the National Register of Highway Inspectors.


Delegates completing this course and passing all the assessments will receive a Certificate of Competence and Skills Identity Card (optional), accredited by LANTRA Awards. Successful completion of the course will allow delegates to apply to the IHE National Highway Inspectors Register.

Course Fee

The fee for this course is £1,200 + VAT per person, which includes all costs (course notes, Lantra certification etc.). In the event you have a group to train, it may be more cost effective for us to come and deliver the course in-house at your offices. To receive a quotation, please complete a request here.

I have learnt more on this course than I have on any previous course. I would like to say a lot of it was down to the trainer, Tara. She kept everything relevant and informative at the same time as not making it boring, which for me made it so much easier to take the information in.

Had some really good feedback from the inspectors, who all said it was the best training they’d had so a huge thanks for that.
