About Work Zone Flagger
Workzone Flagger Training (Novice)
At Tribune Training Academy, we offer NSC Flagger Training to build your skills as a flagger. Crew members can receive training and certification in four hours. Flaggers learn to provide safe passage for traffic and reduce confusion where road work is ongoing.
The program, required for all novice construction work zone flaggers, meets several federal industry guidelines, including ANSI standard ISEA-107-2015 and the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices. It teaches students flagging procedures, proper use of equipment, and how to coordinate traffic movement, and it can also be used as a refresher course for experienced workers. For your convenience, we can arrange to hold the course on-site at your location.
Controlling traffic through work areas is one of the most important — and dangerous — operations in construction maintenance.

The Office of Highway Safety, the Federal Highway Administration, and several state Departments of Transportation have reviewed this program.
