EACH YEAR, THOUSANDS ARE INJURED OR KILLED IN WORK ZONES.
The Office of Highway Safety, the Federal Highway Administration, and several state Departments of Transportation have reviewed this program. The primary objectives of the program are to train Flaggers to provide safe passage of traffic through and around work areas and to minimize confusion by bringing standard flagging procedures to our nation’s highways. Controlling traffic through work areas is one of the most important — and dangerous — operations in construction maintenance.
Here is what your work zone crew will earn:
- Thorough understanding of flagging procedures and proper use of required equipment
- Improved flagging skills from hands-on training, classroom activities and a flagging skills test
- Increased ability to coordinate traffic movement through the work zone
This updated 4-hour course is a must for novice construction work zone Flaggers in both one and two-person flagging operations. Experienced Flaggers can attend this course as a refresher. All attendees receive a certificate upon course completion.
Course Length: Up to 4 hours depending on size of the class and skill level of students Price: $95.00
Students MUST understand English to attend and pass the required exam as specified by Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT).
