Streetworks Excavation and Reinstatement (6167)

Last Updated: 19 Mar 2020
This replaces the 6157 Streetworks qualification, which will be available from March 2020.

There are two “key certificates” for operatives; Location & avoidance of underground apparatus; and Signing, lighting and guarding. As well as two “key certificates” for supervisors; Location & avoidance of underground apparatus; and Monitoring signing, lighting and guarding.

As long as you hold the key certificates, you can choose to hold as many or as few of the other units to suit the work that you do.

These replace the 6157 Streetworks Excavation and Reinstatement qualifications. There has been a change to the knowledge assessment but no other changes to the unit contents or practical assessments you will be familiar with in 6157. The change will not affect your existing 6157 certificates or street works cards, and they will remain valid until they expire.

From 02 March 2020 centres will be required to register candidates on one pathway to claim the unit certificates; 6167-01 for initial assessments and 6167-02 for reassessments. Centres currently approved to deliver the old 6157 pathways will have been given automatic approval to deliver 6167.

6167-01 initial assessment is suitable for operatives and supervisors who work on the highway in the UK and require registration on the SWQR or who's current registration has expired beyond
5 years.

6167-02 re-assessments are suitable for operatives and supervisors who work on highways in England and Scotland are already registered on the SWQR and need to renew their registration.

Multiple choice assessments for all units are available online via e-volve or as paper-based results entry until 1st March 2021 only. From 2nd March 2021 multiple choice assessments will only be available online via e-volve. This applies to all awarding organisation and stipulated by HAUC.
These new qualifications are for those employed in carrying out and monitoring works on the highway and cover a range of skills from those who need to safeguard their work by signing lighting and guarding to carrying out excavation and re-instatement work. They are available for both operators and supervisors.

These qualifications provide routes to registration or re-registration on the Street Works Qualifications Register (SWQR) required under the New Roads and Streetworks Act 1991. Re-registration is required every 5 years.
Available to deliver in the following:
  • England
  • Wales
  • Scotland
  • Northern Ireland
