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. Each of these organizations offer training programs for certifying flaggers and flagger trainers.

Currently, these are the only approved programs.

CTDOT does not accept any online flagger courses.
