Answers to the most common questions:
The ATSSA wallet card we issue
is identical to every other ATSSA flagger card,
even those issued by in-person instructors.
State-specific courses are offered mainly due to a state required expiration date.
Most state DOTs accept flagger certifications issued in any other state.
At this time, MD, WA, ID, OR, MT are the only state we are aware of that
do not allow you to work using a card issued from another state.
We have many people that take one class for their home state but actually work
nationwide in every state for the DOTs, Railroads, Pipelines, Power Companies, etc.
