I work on the road doing drop kerbing; which NRSWA units do I need?

If you are doing drop kerbing, you will need to complete the full course. This is because you will need to cat scan the area before you start digging, then sign out the area so you are safely protected and excavate and then reinstate. The full course units are listed below;

  • Unit 001 location and avoidance of underground apparatus
  • Unit 002 signing lighting and guarding
  • Unit 003 excavation in the highway
  • Unit 004 reinstatement & compaction of backfill materials
  • Unit 005 reinstatement & compaction of sub-base & road-base in non-bituminous materials
  • Unit 006 reinstatement in cold-lay bituminous materials
  • Unit 007 reinstatement in hot-lay bituminous materials
  • Unit 009 reinstatement of modular surfaces & concrete footways

 

The NRSWA Operative training runs as a 5-day block, running Monday to Friday. At each location, we run different units so the cost and unit combination varies.

      Hi Steven,

      Thank you for your comment. If you would like to learn how to drop kerbs, you may need to take a NRSWA Streetworks Supervisor or Operative course, depending on whether you will actually be performing drop kerbing or supervising the activity.

      Please note a member from our customer service team will email you shortly, providing further details of the NRSWA courses and what course is best for you. Additionally, feel free to speak with a member from our team on 0800 0213 263 for further information and to book your course directly. You can also book your NRSWA course online by clicking here, where we have a range of training centres across the UK and close to Cheshire.

      I hope I have been able to help.

      Kind regards,

      Nisha
