Arrive Alive

300 Traffic police recruits will commence training through the RTMC on new higher-level qualification.

The Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) will this weekend receive 300 traffic police recruits who will commence training on new higher-level qualification.

The groundbreaking qualification is intended to produce a 21st century cadre of traffic officers who will be equipped in all aspects of traffic legislation, ethics and communication among others.

The qualification is benchmarked on international standards and is the first such qualification to be offered in Africa. It is part of efforts to professionalise the road traffic law enforcement fraternity in the country

The previous curriculum for traffic officer trainees was on National Qualification Framework (NQF) Level 4 (equivalent to a matric qualification) and had many limitations. The shortcomings of the previous curriculum prompted the RTMC to introduce the new qualification on NQF Level 6, which is equivalent to a University Diploma.

The all-new qualification will be a three-year course and it will ensure that trainees are adequately trained to deal with any eventualities on the road. The learning programme consists of three components: knowledge, practical skills and workplace experience.

The acting Minister of Transport Thulas Nxesi will address the new recruits and their next of kin at welcoming ceremony that will take place as follows:

Date : 27 January 2019
Time : 10H00
Venue : Denel Aviation Campus
Bonaero Park
Atlas Road
Kempton Park
