 Flagging & Traffic Control Certification

The flagger must, through visual movements and appearance, establish authority and confidence so traffic responds in time and consistently with the need to stop, change lanes, proceed more slowly, or maneuver as necessary around the work site.

The trained flagger is the key factor in establishing proper warning and traffic control to assure workers' safety and to see that traffic moves cautiously and consistently through the work zone.

The contents of this class will provide you, the flagger, with the information and procedures necessary to enhance the safety of both workers and drivers while in typical street and highway construction and repair projects.

This is the required certification for applying for a flagging and traffic control position in the State of Washington with reciprocity in Oregon, Idaho, and Montana. The certification manual used for this class incorporates required information from the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), Part 6 of the Temporary Traffic Control for Standards and Procedures in the State of Washington.
