Road Traffic Management course

Road Traffic Management course

England Athletics have arranged a series of Road Traffic Management courses and refresher courses for anyone considering undertaking the role of Traffic Management Operative (TMO) in order to understand how to deal with road closures and diversions.

To implement road closures you must be trained, covered by insurance and be able to satisfy local authorities that events will be managed properly. This course is suitable for all Event Organisers and Event Marshals, both in the commercial and voluntary sectors, and particularly those involved with road races.

This is a one day course (normally 9am-4pm) that will equip you with the knowledge to safely manage traffic movements at events.You will gain a national award through the NCFE ( and each delegate will receive a certificate on completion. In addition, UK Athletics’ insurers have underwritten the training. The qualification lasts three years – to remain qualified after this you will need to attend a half day Refresher Course.

The course costs £70 for applicants who are affiliated to England Athletics, otherwise £140. Refresher Courses cost £40 for affiliates, otherwise £80.
