NRSWA New Roads & Street Works Reassessment

NRSWA Street Works training for both Operatives and Supervisors

The Street Works Qualifications Register (SWQR) is maintained in Glasgow, at the invitation of the Department for Transport. The SWQR holds details of qualified Supervisors and Operatives who have gained the appropriate qualifications in relation to the New Roads and Street Works Act 1991 (NRSWA).

Under the New Roads and Street Works Act 1991, the installation, renewal, maintenance and inspection of underground apparatus in any street or road must be under the control of competent people.

Good to know

  • If you are working, or supervising works, in the highway you could be required to hold one or more of the Street Works qualifications, depending on your job role.
  • There are sixteen units of competence for Operatives and Supervisors.
  • Nine units are applicable to Operatives and eight to Supervisors. One of these units (Unit 1) applies to both groups. Details of the Street Works Scheme structure can be found on our Qualifications Breakdown.
  • Awarding bodies, appointed by the Government (Certified Awarding Body for the Water Industry), the (Scottish Qualifications Authority), and (City and Guilds) work closely with the Street Works Qualifications Register so that each qualified Supervisor or Operative can be issued with a durable card (which can be produced on-site if necessary) to show that he/she is in possession of the appropriate qualification(s).
  • Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive a SCOTVEC card.
  • Your details will be added to the SWQR ‘The Street Works Qualifications Register’.
