Full Details

According to the DfT Traffic Signs Manual “Engineers who design and maintain the road network must be able to offer consistent standards that can satisfy the road user’s need for information and guidance. Traffic authorities depend on signing for the efficient control and movement of traffic, for enforcement of traffic regulations and, most importantly, as an aid to road safety. It is therefore recommended that all major traffic signing work should have been designed or checked by someone with an appropriate qualification”.

The Traffic Signs Manual (section 1.3.4) mentions the IHE Professional Certificate in Traffic Sign Design. The Certificate and Diploma allow applicants to demonstrate their experience and produce work to the required standard. A designer holding a Practitioner or Expert level Certificate would be likely to demonstrate the skills needed to adequately check traffic signing work.

Course Details

This 4-day course provides both a theoretical foundation and practical experience in the design and implementation of traffic signing and road marking schemes.  It contains an introduction to the subject, but takes the concepts through to experienced practitioner level.

The introduction will be useful as a refresher for those with some signing experience, and the course is thus suitable for both those new to the concepts and for those for whom knowledge of signs and markings forms part of a wider remit, such as senior highway engineers, traffic engineers and all those involved in managing highways and their infrastructure.

It also provides a thorough background for anyone involved in the civil or criminal enforcement of parking or moving traffic offences including the police and prosecution authorities.

The course covers road traffic sign design and road markings from both a legal and practical perspective, including theory, principles and best practice.  It provides hands-on experience of many practical examples. This facilitates discussion between participants and ensures that they have achieved a full understanding of each topic area.

This course leads to a Professional Certificate or Diploma in Traffic Sign Design and Road Markings.
