All Welsh safety camera operators
Wales has become the first country in the UK to employ a full team of BTEC qualified speed enforcement operators.
All Go Safe partnership staff from the four Welsh police forces, involved in the detection of speeding motorists, now hold BTEC Level 3 Advanced Awards in Road Safety Enforcement Technology, for either radar technicians or laser operators.
The Go Safe team were trained by Road Safety Support's team of highly skilled enforcement technology and legal experts.
As part of Go Safe's commitment to maintaining standards, a team of operators also completed the Industry Qualification (IQ) Level 2 Award in Training Delivery. This three-day course introduced participants to the theory and practice of designing and delivering structured training.
The IQ qualification will help the ‘in house’ trainers to maintain the competence and professionalism of the enforcement team.
Pete Nolan, Road Safety Support's Training Manager, said: "It is fantastic that the entire team are now qualified in Wales. Their commitment to professionalism in their efforts to keep the roads of Wales safe is clearly demonstrated through the qualifications they now all possess."
He added: "It is wonderful that they are planning for the future by embedding training and development within the team as part of their commitment to excellence.”
