If you are working on the roads, whether you are digging up the roads, reinstating or just need to barrier of an area while you are cutting a tree or working in a distribution board. There are 9 different units for the operative training. If you are the one who is going to be carrying out the digging/ setting out work, you will need to complete the NRSWA Operative training.
