The applicable Department and non-Department personnel must be trained in accordance with the following process for Temporary Traffic Control (TTC) Training.
The Department provides for three categories of training. Determine the required category of training as follow
- Advanced and Advanced Refresher Training: Required for personnel with the authority and responsibility for making decisions on the specific TTC requirements to be implemented. These positions include the following:
a. The Professional Engineer responsible for the development of the Transportation Management Plan (TMP) and design of the TTC Plan.
b. The Worksite Traffic Supervisor in accordance with FDOT Standard Specifications, Section 102.
c. Personnel responsible for supervising the installation, removal and field maintenance of TTC devices, including temporary barriers, end treatments and crash cushions.
d. Personnel responsible for inspection of the placement or operational function of temporary traffic control devices, including temporary barriers, end treatments and crash cushions.
- Intermediate and Intermediate Refresher Training: Required for personnel with duties that include any of the following activities:
a. Personnel responsible for supervising the installation, removal and field maintenance of TTC devices, excluding temporary barriers, end treatments and crash cushions.
b. Inspection of the placement or operational function of temporary traffic control devices, excluding temporary barriers, end treatments and crash cushions.
- Flagger Training: Required for all personnel flagging traffic.
Training for the Advanced, Advanced Refresher, Intermediate and Intermediate Refresher
categories must be performed by a Provider listed on the MOT Administration website.
Training for the Flagger category must be performed by either a Provider listed on the MOT Administration website or personnel holding a current certificate in the Advanced or Intermediate category. Only personnel trained through a
Provider will be listed in the TQDBS.
There is no experience or prerequisite required for any category of training.
Any higher training course category may be substituted for a lower training course category. For example, Flagger training requirements are met by completing the Intermediate or Advanced training courses, and Intermediate training requirements are met by completing the Advanced training course.
Refresher courses, for all categories, are required every four years in order for all personnel to maintain a valid certification.
Successful completion of a training course is defined as the following: The students must pass the course exam with a score of 70% or greater and successfully complete the class exercises. A failing grade on any course exam requires the student to retake that same course prior to retesting.
If a certificate expires prior to passing a refresher course, the full Advanced or Intermediate course must be taken. Students should proactively schedule refresher courses well in advance of their certificate’s expiration date.
If a student is registered for a refresher course that will take place prior to their certificate’s expiration date and that same refresher course is cancelled by the Provider, the student may request an extension for qualification to take a refresher course instead of the full Advanced or Intermediate course. This extension request must be made through the MOT Administrator in writing prior to the expiration of the certificate. The determination of whether the request is granted or not will be at the sole discretion of the FDOT State Roadway Design Engineer or a delegate. Once the certificate expires, the student is prohibited from performing any duties associated with the certification until the refresher course is completed and a new certificate is received.
Upon successful completion of a training course, each individual will receive a wallet-sized card, which shows the student’s name, the Provider’s name and ID # (not applicable for Flaggers when not instructed by a Provider), the instructor’s name, the course category, the date the exam was successfully completed, and the expiration date. For all classes taken through Providers, the MOT Administrator will issue Certificates and list the individual in the TQDBS.
Professional Development Hours (PDH) are not automatically provided. It is the responsibility of each Provider to obtain certification by the appropriate board to be able to provide PDH’s for attending their class. If available, PDH Certificates will be provided separately from the MOT Certificate.
