The Road Surface Treatments Association (RSTA) has launched the Autumn 2020 Road Surface Treatments training programme for highway engineers and operatives.

Courses provide a detailed technical introduction to the theory and practice of road surface treatments including slurry surfacing (Microsurfacing) and surface dressing.

The courses meet the requirements of the road surface industry’s National Highways Sector

Scheme 13 for the S(NHSS 13)

In addition, the Diploma in Road Surface Treatments, developed by the RSTA and Institute of Asphalt Technology (IAT) with the University of Derby, is open for new students in October.

The courses for Autumn include:

  • Surface dressing, Milton Keynes, 10th and 11th November 2020.
  • Surface dressing, Yorkshire, 1st and 2nd December 2020.
  • Slurry surfacing (Microsurfacing), Milton Keynes, 8th December 2020.

“Providing industry-recognised training is an important part of delivering the RSTA’s objective of forwarding the competence of the road surfacing industry’s workforce,” said Paul Boss, RSTA Chief Executive. “In addition to the training programme, our Training and Assessment Centre enables a wide range of Road Surfacing NVQ levels 2-4, for operatives up to supervisory/management level. The only way to comply with NHSS13 for the Supply and Application of Road Surface Treatments and to gain the correct Blue CSCS card with the RSTA logo and relevant NVQ level 2 is to go through the RSTA Training and Assessment Centre. The Assessment Centre also offers various other NVQs in different disciplines to ensure our members can comply with other sector schemes within highways.”
