This unit standard does not replace any other unit standard and is not replaced by any other unit standard. 

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
The purpose of this unit standard is that learners are capable of communicating with the public, in groups or individually, or to the media in a clear and responsible way, to inform them regarding traffic safety and traffic-related issues. The provision of information contributes to public relations, and improves safety on South African roads, for all road users, including pedestrians.

This unit standard also allows for transformation with the traffic policing profession, as learners become models for other learners. This attracts quality people and allows for the aspirations of people to be part of the traffic policing profession. The recognition of prior learning will formalise informal and non-formal leaning and learners will be able to obtain credits towards a national qualification.

Credited learners are capable of:
  • Informing different public target groups of the risks of accidents.
  • Informing the media of specific accident risks and planned activities.
  • Communicating the implications of various offences to individual offenders.
  • Managing scholar patrols. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
  • Conducting oneself in a professional manner in a policing environment.
