COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This course provides guidance and training for field personnel working in the planning, selection, application, and operation of short-term work zones. The course addresses typical short-term maintenance activities occurring on two-lane rural highways and multilane urban streets and highways. The course covers the applicable standards for work zone protection contained in the "Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices" (MUTCD), discussing the need for proper application of devices, while addressing liability issues of highway agencies and individuals. Classroom presentation includes practical exercises to plan, set up, operate, and remove work zone safety devices, including appropriate flagging procedures for these operations.

This course is part of the Certificate of Accomplishment in Work Zone Safety. To learn more about how you can achieve a certificate in Work Zone Safety visit the NHI Web site at http://www.nhi.fhwa.dot.gov/training/cert_programs.aspx.

NHI is providing 30 MUTCD Manuals per class and charging the host for these at our cost - $10 per copy. If there are excess manuals those are to be retained by the host. Each host will be charged a flat fee of $300 for the manuals (30 x $10) to allow NHI to recoup only our purchase costs.

  • Apply traffic control through short-term and mobile work areas
  • Use national work zone standards and requirements as contained in Part VI of the MUTCD
