Traffic Controller

Traffic Controller

People required to control traffic with a stop-slow bat must undertake training to become an authorised traffic controller. This traffic controller training course allows you to stop and slow traffic as required. Whilst the general public refer to controllers as lollipop operators, the responsibilities of these key people are greater than most realise.
