In an effort to support the FHWA Work Zone Safety and Mobility Rule that applies to all State and Local Governments receiving Federal-aid highway funding (reference 23 CFR 630 Subpart J), we are pleased to offer the ATSSA Traffic Control Technician (TCT) course as the industry standard for work zone safety training.

Everyone involved in construction work-zone projects should have 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.

There will be an exam at the end of the day with approximately one hour to complete. Participants will be required to have their cameras turned on during the exam.

This is not a certification class. ATSSA will issue certificates of completion.


Tim Luttrell, ATSSA Master Trainer, is a Senior Transportation Engineer with Leidos and is a registered Professional Engineer in the State of Tennessee and the District of Columbia.
