CTDOT Approved Flagger Program

Uniformed flaggers shall meet the requirements set forth in the current Standard Specifications for Roads, Bridges, Facilities and Incidental Construction – Article 9.70.03-2.

The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) recognizes the American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA) and National Safety Council (NSC) flagger training programs.

These organizations offer in-classroom and online training course options for certifying flaggers and flagger trainers. Currently, these are the only programs recognized by CTDOT.

CTDOT does not accept any other flagger training programs at this time.
