The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Publication 213 requires that all flaggers, at minimum, shall have training as per the most current version of Publication 408, Section 901.3 Flagger Training. This requirement applies to anyone performing flagging duties on any public roadway in Pennsylvania. APC is offering this Flagging Train-the-Trainer course to help attendees comply with the requirements in Publication 213. It has been designed to satisfy the minimum training guidelines outlined in Publication 408. Trainees that successfully complete this session will receive a wallet-sized training verification card and access to the PowerPoint, 20-question exam, and a template to create future trainee verification cards. The materials provided to attendees can then be used to train their own flaggers.
