As the police no longer assume responsibility for Traffic Management at community events that are not of national significance, there is a need to have community event organisers and their staff educated to plan and implement Traffic Management measures for community events to a high standard. Lantra has developed this course to provide event organisers and their staff the knowledge of Traffic Management techniques and equipment implementation, as well as methods to aid with planning, costing and application of Traffic Management plans. The course has a strong emphasis on maintaining safety for pedestrians, event staff and road users. The TMCE course is designed to be approachable to a large number of roles and professions, as such there are no prerequisites for this course.
