The Flaggers in Work Zones course provides training to work zone personnel assigned to traffic control duties. TxDOT requires this training be received every 3 years. During the course, participants are instructed on proper flagging techniques critical to the safety of work zone personnel and guided through demonstrations designed to help reduce the risk of traffic accidents, injuries, and fatalities. In addition to classroom training, all participants are provided opportunities to practice using those techniques demonstrated during assigned practical field scenarios.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
Class attendance is an essential part of the education process and participants in TEEX courses are expected to attend all class sessions and field exercises. This course requires participants to attend a minimum of 80% of the class hours as a component of successful course completion. During the course, your instructor will review any additional attendance requirements, for example a field exercise that cannot be missed.
