Course: Basic Work Zone And Flagger Qualification
This course is intended for individuals who perform flagging and temporary traffic control activities on Kentucky’s roadways.

This training session includes lectures, videos, and hands-on exercises to present the following: proper use of personal protective equipment, work zone components and types of operations, flagging procedures, proper and improper flagging operations, as well as methods of communicating with workers and the public.
