NRSWA Training courses are designed for Operatives who are required to carry out their duties to standards in-line with the New Roads and Street Works Act (NRSWA), current legislation, and applicable Approved Codes of Practice (ACOP’s). They are also commonly known as “streetworks training” or “streetworks courses”.

The New Roads and Street Works Act (NRSWA) sets out the procedures and guidelines for personnel employed by local authorities, utilities companies and their contractors for the purpose of any road works in the highway or on footpaths. The Act and associated Codes of Practice cover issues such as the notification requirements, safety to highway users and the standards required of the reinstatement of all excavations on the highway, standards for signing, lighting and guarding, etc.

There are 16 NRSWA course units of competence with the New Roads and Street Works Act. The unit referencing scheme was updated in April 2017, when the new regulations came into force in England, these being The Street Works (Qualifications of Operatives and Supervisors) (England) Regulations 2016. For clarity both the old numerical references and new alpha-numeric references are included below. Unit 1 (LA) is for Supervisors and Operators, Units 2-9 (O1-O8) are relevant to operators, and Units 10-16 (S1 – S7) are relevant to Supervisors
