Connexis Infrastructure ITO has completed the review of the unit standards listed above.

 

Date new versions published January 2020

 

Summary

 

Connexis Infrastructure ITO in partnership with the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) and the temporary traffic management industry completed a review of the unit standards listed above.

Following an open consultation process, the decision was made to expire the unit standards without replacement as they are no longer fit for purpose.

 

New unit standards were developed to align with the Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management (CoPTTM) and the new NZTA training and competency model. This will ensure time for stakeholders to transition to the new requirements.

 

Main changes

 

                All unit standards were designated expiring without replacement.

 

These Category D unit standards will expire at the end of December 2022
