Laser Qualifications for Welsh Camera Operators
Eight safety camera operators from Wales have become the latest students to achieve the Road Safety Support (RSS) laser operators’ qualification.
The police staff from the North Wales, South Wales and Dyfed Powys forces successfully completed the IQ Level 3 Award in Road Safety Enforcement Technology for Laser Operators last week.
The qualification provides users of enforcement technology with the skills and knowledge they need to carry out their roles effectively, and is recognised and valued by the courts.
The course was delivered by Steve Langdon, Legal Support Manager, and Steve Callaghan, Technical Support Manager, of RSS, over five days.
The qualification included various elements, including operating enforcement devices efficiently and lawfully, the technical and legal contexts in which the technology is used, the Home Office Type Approval process and calibration.
Steve Langdon said: “It was a pleasure to teach such an excellent group of students who worked hard and interacted throughout the entire course.
“This was reflected in their exam marks which were among the highest achieved in this qualification.”
