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.
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 Training, accredited by LANTRA Awards.
Successful completion of the course will allow delegates to register on the IHE National Register of Highway Inspectors and claim credit for progression towards an Engineering Technician qualification.
