This is a basic training in the area of flagger training. It has been designed for someone learning the first steps in performing flagger duties. This training would be useful as a refresher course for all employees involved with work zone traffic control where flaggers are utilized.

This training does not go into individual state flagger training or certification requirements. For more information on flagger training requirements contact your State's safety office.


Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the proper position for flagging
  • Define the flagging procedures for stop, slow, and proceed
  • Identify the correct procedures for various flagging situations
  • Describe the proper conduct in flagging


This training is intended for individuals that will be performing or are engaging in flagger duties on construction/maintenance projects. The course will assist them in better understanding the importance and duties involved with flagging on a project. It would be beneficial to the entry level employee as well as the experienced flagger.
