Flagger Instructor Training (FIT) Course Information and Facts
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 FIT course is designed to teach students how to effectively teach flagger courses. This train-the-trainer course emphasizes 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. Each FIT student must teach a short section of this material to demonstrate their ability to communicate and effectively present the material to learners. Individuals successfully completing the FIT will be recognized as ATSSA Certified Flagger Instructors.
NOTE: To become FIT certified in Virginia, the TCT course is not required. To become FIT certified in WA, the WA state-specific FIT course is required. To teach flaggers in FL, only the FL Intermediate or Advanced course is required.
