Traffic Control Technician

Traffic Control Technician (TCT)

Everyone involved in a construction work zone project should have a basic knowledge of temporary traffic control that allows them to assist in installing traffic control devices, monitoring their performance, and recognizing deficiencies during the course of a project.

The TCT course is an introduction to temporary traffic control in work zones for individuals who work in the field installing and removing traffic control devices. The course provides concepts, techniques, and practice exercises in the installation and maintenance of traffic control devices.


State-specific TCT training is required in AZ, CA, LA, MI, MN, NC, PA, SC, TX, and UT.

The TCI course is not a prerequisite for the TCS course in NC. TCI registration is optional when attending the TCS course.
