The Traffic Control technician course is offered as an introduction to the basic principles of temporary work zone traffic control.  This training course is designed to instruct the participants in the underlying principles of temporary traffic control as set forth in the MUTCD.

In this course students will be provided with practical knowledge, techniques, and instruction on the installation and maintenance of traffic control devices to enable them to apply practical concepts.  This course is recommended for all workers who may be required to handle temporary traffic control devices; and is accepted by UDOT.

Workers are required to complete and pass a written examination. Training is good for 4 years. It will take 6-8 weeks for certificates to be mailed from ATSSA.

The APWA and UDOT specifications as outlined in Traffic Control 01554 Section 1.9 requires that the Traffic Control Technician be certified by the Department or by the American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA) as a Traffic Control Technician (TCT).
