Nationally recognised qualifications for roadmarkers are available from Connexis, the Industry Training Organisation (ITO) for the infrastructure industry.
National Certificates are available to suit all levels of roadmarking work. They are designed to be stand-alone and can be entered at any level, although they are structured to provide a pathway for people wanting to progress from Assistant to Senior Operator level.

The Industry Training process
Connexis roadmarking qualifications are completed through the recognition of relevant work skills and knowledge, which are gained through on-job training rather than in the classroom.
Trainees collect evidence of these skills and knowledge in a workbook, which is verified and assessed against the unit standards in the qualification. A wide range of support is available – each trainee has a mentor assigned to help them through the process and Connexis regional advisors provide additional guidance.
Assessment and Moderation
Connexis has registered roadmarking assessors around the country. An assessor makes an evaluation as to whether the skills and knowledge of an individual meet the required competencies for the unit standards which make up qualifications.
Registered assessors have industry experience and excellent technical knowledge and skills.
If you are keen to give something back to the industry and are interested in becoming an Connexis registered assessor, please visit the Connexis website for further infomation.
Connexis also has an appointed roadmarking sector moderator. The role of the moderator is to support assessors and to ensure consistency of assessments so that quality is maintained.
