Preformed, temporary markings & surface mounted studs


Overview
The purpose of this standard is to provide overview knowledge of installing preformed cold thermoplastic road markings on rolls or symbols/logos. Typically for school playgrounds, factories, car parks, and increasingly on public highways.

CITB has developed this standard in discussion with industry

Duration

Minimum of 1 day 6 learning hours

Purpose/Scope

The purpose of this standard is to provide overview knowledge of installing preformed cold thermoplastic road markings on rolls or symbols/logos. Typically for school playgrounds, factories, car parks, and increasingly on public highways.

The scope of this standard covers:

  • types, uses, and performance
  • main fixing methods
  • how to prepare the surface
  • setting out regulations: Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions (TSRGD), chapter 5, and Road Safety Marking Association (RSMA) update your road markings
  • safety: hazards, risks, controls, and safe working practices
  • how to plan to install
  • how to set out
  • how to remove
  • how to dispose of waste materials
  • safety for workers and other road users
  • legislation for: road users, road vehicles, and road traffic.

Occupational relevance

Training delivered against this standard is relevant to the following occupational group(s):

  • operative and craft to level 2
  • supervision .

Candidate pre-requisites

There are no candidate pre-requisites as part of this standard. However, it would be beneficial if candidates had experience in thermoplastic road marking operations.

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 methods may be used in the delivery of this standard:

  • practical training: off the job simulated environment (not on the roads)
  • theory training: classroom

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.

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

Learning should include at least 25% of learning activities to suit scenario examples, and simulated practical examples.

Demonstrate operation of mobile equipment and vehicles, with delegates as passengers and observers, off the road, in a closed-access area.

Candidates may be able to try some basic practical tasks under close supervision and coaching, off the job, after a risk assessment has been completed and risks addressed. This is merely to sample the range of work types, not to gain competency.

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

Non-mandatory refresher every 3 years.

Approval date

November 2018

Review cycle

Either on request or 3 years from approval date.

Learning outcomes

The candidate will be able to:
