FAQ

What is TCP certification?

TCP certification is the process of obtaining a certification that validates an individual’s knowledge and skills in traffic control practices. It involves training and assessment to ensure competency in safely directing traffic at construction sites or road work zones. TCP certification is often required by government authorities or construction companies to ensure that traffic control personnel understand the rules, regulations, and techniques necessary for effective traffic management. It serves as a measure to ensure that individuals are capable of performing their duties efficiently and maintaining the safety of workers, motorists, and pedestrians in traffic control scenarios.

What does a traffic control person do?

A traffic control person, also known as a flagger, directs and controls vehicular and pedestrian traffic at construction sites, road work zones, or areas that require traffic management. Their primary responsibility is to ensure safety by guiding traffic in an organized manner. This involves setting up traffic control devices, such as cones and signs, using hand signals or flags to direct traffic flow, guiding vehicles through work zones, and enforcing traffic regulations. Traffic control persons communicate with construction crews, drivers, and pedestrians to maintain a smooth traffic flow while prioritizing the well-being of everyone involved and reporting any incidents or violations.
