Flagger Training

Flaggers are the most important members of your construction or maintenance crew. In order to protect your work zones, every flagger is required to know proper flagging procedures and use the appropriate equipment. Chapter 6E of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control (MUTCD) contains all of the flagger requirements and recommendations. The MUTCD may be downloaded at http://

The Technology Transfer Center offers Flagger Training as part of our training program. Classes may be scheduled at your facility provided the following conditions are met:
      1. A minimum of 40 people is required to offer this training. (If you do not have this many employees, work with other local agencies in you area to organize a joint class.)
      2. A roster of all attendees must be provided two weeks before the start date or the class will be cancelled.

Who should receive this training? This training is appropriate for any local agency employee who may perform as a flagger in emergency or non-emergency situations. This includes highway department employees (workers and supervisors), public utility employees, police officers, and firemen (volunteer and full-time).
