The NRSWA Supervisor Course aims to enable Supervisors to gain the necessary qualifications under the New roads and Streetworks Act 1991 which allow them to carry out their duties on the public highway, ranging from excavation to permanent re-instatement of paved structures.

This programme is designed for supervisors who are required to monitor operatives performing excavation, backfill and reinstatement duties.
