PennDOT Mandated Flagger Training - Instructor Led
This course has been scheduled to allow Flaggers to be trained as a "Trained Flagger" in accordance to PennDOT Publication 408 flagger training requirements. Registration at each session is limited, so early registration is encouraged.
This instructor-led Flagger Training will be conducted for individuals who have flagging responsibilities on ANY ROAD OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. Others who would benefit from this course include: utility companies working on low volume roads, law enforcement personnel, municipal managers and elected officials (to understand the importance, and for budgeting purposes).
This course has been designed to meet the PennDOT Publication 408 flagger training requirements mandated for all flaggers in Pennsylvania. The course covers flagging procedures, work zone set-up requirements, and traffic control devices based on information from PennDOT Publication 213—Temporary Traffic Control Guidelines, the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), and PennDOT Publication 234—Flagging Handbook.
The course covers development of traffic control plans for flagging, use of typical layout figures from the Publication 213, and flagger visibility/procedures. The course emphasizes teaching work zone traffic control guidelines and set-ups for typical municipal and utility work. All attendees who pass (70%) a 20-question exam will receive a flagger training wallet card, which is valid for three years.
Intended Audience: Individuals who are performing work such as maintenance/ construction activities on ANY ROAD OPEN TO THE PUBLIC including: roadmasters, foreman, and street superintendents. Others who would benefit from this course include safety coordinators, law enforcement personnel and municipal engineers/managers.
Attendees MUST bring a copy of PennDOT Publication 213 —Temporary Traffic Control Guidelines (June 2014 edition) to the class. THIS MAY BE SHARED - IT IS NOT NECESSARY FOR EACH PERSON TO HAVE ONE COMPLETE COPY OF THE PUBLICATION!
Other materials that would be helpful, but are not required, include the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices Part 6 Temporary Traffic Control, and PennDOT Publication 234—Flagging Handbook.
