Certified flaggers are responsible for worker and public safety during road construction, utility work and maintenance operations. Because of this, the flagger must, through visual movements and appearance, establish authority and confidence so traffic will respond in time and consistently with the need to stop, change lanes, proceed more slowly, or maneuver as necessary around the work site.
This class prepares students to receive a Flagger Certification card, which is valid for 3 years in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana. Students must be at least 18 years old and must bring a valid State I.D. Card or Drivers License to the class.
