Course Description

Self-paced CD-ROM; 20 PowerPoint Modules

This self-paced course is a great way to provide training to public works and utility workers. The course provides a broad scope of knowledge in the basics of temporary traffic control and presents recommendations on applying simplified traffic control procedures when performing utility and public works operations.
