SWARCO teams up with Institute of Highway Engineers

SWARCO Traffic Ltd is sponsoring the Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE) Professional Certificate in Traffic Signal Control, a two-part course that enhances the knowledge and understanding of traffic control schemes.

The sponsorship is helping cut the cost for delegates to attend the course, which is being held at NAL, Worcester, to ensure more within the industry are able to attend. Part one, held between 22nd and 23rd March, will provide delegates with a broader knowledge and general understanding of the sector, while part two, held on 9th and 10th May, will give delegates the technical knowledge they require for quality installations and maintenance.

Cherrie Ouerghi, Events Coordinator at the IHE, says she is delighted to have SWARCO Traffic as a sponsor: “With SWARCO’s sponsorship we can continue training a larger number of delegates and support the future of our industry.”

At the end of the course, delegates will have one year to complete the Professional Certificate, applying the knowledge acquired to pass key competencies such as risk assessment, site acceptance, safety audit, electrical design consideration and signal specification and installation. The assignments will be structured to allow candidates to submit this as a Technical Report in their submission towards Engineering Council Professional Registration – i.e. Incorporated Engineer IEng or Engineering Technician EngTech.

Andrew Walker, Business Development Manager at SWARCO, hopes the sponsorship is the beginning of a long-term relationship with the IHE: “We look forward to working together in the future where our support can help to better train those in the industry to everyone’s benefit.”
