Work Zone Traffic Control Supervisor Qualification

This course is intended for individuals who supervise traffic control technicians and other field personnel and who are responsible for implementing the Traffic Control Plan. It provides comprehensive training on work zone standards, guidelines, installation and removal procedures, inspection, and documentation. Students are taught how to read and interpret traffic control plans for implementation in the field, and how to correct and document deficiencies. The course expands on the concepts and techniques taught in the Traffic Control Technician Course, which is a prerequisite for the supervisor training. Supervisors must be qualified through training and testing every five years. Those who successfully pass the test will be qualified and their results will be provided to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
