NRSWA (New Roads & Street Works Act) Supervisor Re-Assessment Course

NRSWA Supervisor Re-Assessment Training (New Roads and Street Works) is a necessity for any employee who have previously completed the NRSWA Supervisor course.

Delegates who wish to undertake this training MUST ensure their current card is within the scheme renewal guidelines which are 6 months prior or 6 months after the expiry date. It is strongly recommended that delegates complete their training within a 4 month timescale, as the 6 month expiry is inclusive of the potential 8 weeks card processing period. Failure to adhere to these guidelines will result in the delegate having to sit the full 5 day course again.

The Re-Assessment training will cover the standard units only (Unit 1 and Units 10-14 & 16) as detailed below.


At the end of the course delegates knowledge will be refreshed on: –

  • The current NRSW Act.
  • Selecting appropriate personal protective and safety equipment as required to carry out street works activities.
  • Monitoring duties performed by Operatives for each unit and/or qualification. Standards in-line with current legislation, and ACOP where applicable.
  • Providing a safe working environment for themselves and others


The NRSWA Re-Assessment Course for Supervisors will cover theory and revision of the following units: –

Unit 001 – Location and Avoidance of Underground Apparatus
Unit 010 – Monitoring Signing, Lighting and Guarding
Unit 011 – Monitoring Excavation in the Highway

Unit 013 – Monitoring Reinstatement of Sub-base and Road Base in Non- Bituminous Materials
