Work Zone Flagger Certification
This Work Zone Flagger course is intended for individuals that would like to become professional flaggers. The course trains workers involved in routine construction operations controlling and directing traffic where the general public and/or workers might be exposed to potential workplace dangers caused by equipment and vehicles. This course will present an in-depth explanation of New York State flagging procedures and regulations.
A flagger that will participate in flagging operations on a job site must identify their flagger training provider to the engineer and, if requested, display their competence in performing flagging procedures correctly. Flaggers that are unable to demonstrate their ability to properly perform flagging procedures must be replaced or retrained.

Construction work zone flaggers are required to obtain a Work Zone Flagger certification, which is valid for 3 years. After the 3-year period, individuals must take this Flagger Certification course again.
