Hand held line removal


Overview
The purpose of this standard is to provide the candidate with the knowledge and skills to remove thermoplastic road markings using a hot compressed air (HCA) lance and a hand propelled scabbler (pneumatic).

CITB has developed this standard in discussion with industry

Duration

Minimum 1 day of 6 learning hours

Purpose/Scope

The purpose of this standard is to provide the candidate with the knowledge and skills to remove thermoplastic road markings using a hot compressed air (HCA) lance and a hand propelled scabbler (pneumatic)

The scope of this standard covers:

  • equipment types: HCA lance and a hand-propelled scabbler with compressor
  • removal methods: HCA lance, dustless blasting, scabbling, and high pressure water blasting
  • how to store, handle, and decant fuels such as: LPG, petrol, diesel, and oils
  • safe preparation and planning to remove thermoplastic road markings
  • hazards, risks, controls, and safe work practices associated with the equipment
  • how to set up, pre-use safety check, maintain, shut down, set down, and store the equipment
  • how to remove thermoplastic road markings using the equipment
  • how to identify faults and issues with removal of thermoplastic and use of the equipment
  • main legislation, codes of practice, and/or standards, including manual handling, COSHH, and traffic management.

Occupational relevance

Training delivered against this standard would be relevant to the following occupational group:

  • operative and craft.

Candidate pre-requisites

For this training, it would be beneficial if candidates had a basic knowledge of road marking terminology and techniques.

Instruction/Supervision

As a minimum, course instructors must be able to demonstrate that, in relation to this standard, they have:

  • a train the trainer or instructional techniques course certificate
  • successfully completed training to this standard
  • at least 2 years relevant industrial experience
  • a verifiable CV.

Delivery

The following method(s) may be used in the delivery of this standard:

  • on the job in a safe environment
  • classroom

All materials and equipment must be of a suitable quality and quantity for candidates to achieve learning outcomes, and must comply with relevant legislation.

The class size and candidate/instructor ratio must allow training to be delivered in a safe manner and enable candidates to achieve the learning outcomes.

Learning will use a blend of classroom and practical learning aimed at ensuring the candidate can safely use the pedestrian applicator to effectively install thermoplastic road markings.

This standard is considered to contain 51% or more practical training.

Assessment

Methods of assessment considered appropriate for training delivered against this standard are:

  • practical assessment: off the job simulated environment
  • theory assessment: classroom, e-learning, or a combination.

Quality assurance

Quality assurance against this standard will require initial approval of the training organisation and their content mapped to the standard.

CITB will also conduct an approval intervention, either desk-based or centre visit, to ensure the training organisation can meet the requirements of the training standard.

Approved training organisations (ATOs) will be required to present information on records of training and assessment upon request to CITB for desk based analysis. They will also be visited annually by the CITB quality assurance team.

Renewal

No renewal/refreshment requirements - There are no mandatory renewal or recommended refreshment requirements for this standard.

Approval date

November 2018

Review cycle

Either on request or 3 years from approval date.
