Traffic Management

Fast Lane Training Services offer courses under the 12D Sector Scheme for installing, maintaining and removing temporary traffic management on rural and urban roads.  The awarding body for our Traffic Management courses is Lantra Awards.

Sector Schemes are quality management schemes designed to ensure a suitably trained and skilled workforce in the industry.  The schemes specify the training that candidates must have to ensure that they can work safely and to the highest standard in traffic management in the United Kingdom.

All our Traffic Management courses can be held at our own centre in Norfolk or at a client's own location; we have delivered these courses all over the UK including Suffolk, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, East Sussex and Hertfordshire.  Please note that there are minimum/maximum criteria in relation to candidate numbers; refer to the individual courses for further details.
