Workshop Title:

PennDOT Mandated Flagger Training - Train the Trainer


Train-the-Trainer Course -This four-hour course is designed to train supervisory individuals to train others within their organization to meet the flagger training requirements of PennDOT Publication 408, which is required 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. The course also includes information on training groups of individuals.  Materials to conduct the training, including the flagger training presentation, PennDOT Pub 213, MUTCD Part 6, PennDOT Publication 234, test questions, and card forms will be provided on a CD to each participant. 

Intended Audience: Individuals who are in supervisory positions for 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.
