Recognized as ATSSA's FIT course by the state of Washington



Course Description

Three days/24 hours; Classroom Course; Open, Closed or Co-sponsored Option*

ATSSA is an approved provider for this Washington state-specific Flagger Instructor Training (FIT) course.

Flagging traffic is both a critical and a potentially hazardous part of providing a safe work zone. Flaggers are responsible for protecting their fellow workers as well as motorists. The WA State FIT course is designed to teach students how to effectively teach flagger courses, emphasizing skills and techniques for teaching the fundamentals of flagging. Students are provided with all the information needed to present the four-hour ATSSA flagger certification training course as well as the six-hour WA-specific ATSSA flagger certification training course. Each FIT student must teach a section of this material to demonstrate their ability to communicate and effectively present the material to learners.

Certification fees are included with this course. Interested students must apply and be approved for certification after meeting all certification requirements.

NOTE: This course is recognized as ATSSA's FIT course, however the state requirements go beyond the national requirements set forth by the MUTCD.
