The Department of Transportation (DOT) accepts and approves the American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA) flagger certification and training course or program.
ATSSA approved OnlineFlagger.com as an independent flagger trainer in 2007 and OnlineFlagger has provided training in just about every state since.
ATSSA has numerous approved independent flagger trainers (instructors) across the United States that can teach classes anywhere they wish. ATSSA allows instructors to modify the ATSSA base flagger curriculum with additional materials that may be required in that state for which they are having a class. OnlineFlagger added state specific information to the appropriate states.
The flagger course we deliver is approved by ATSSA. This course is within the guidelines set forth by ATSSA. The flagger certification card you will receive is the official ATSSA Flagger Certification card that ATSSA provides to us, to give to you upon successful completion of the course. This is the card that is recognized by the DOT.
In most situations, a flagger certification card issued in any state is accepted in any other state as proof of training. We do know there are a few states that require you take their specific class, in that case, you might need to take an additional course if you choose to work in another state.
Several State DOT’s have recognized our training and have listed OnlineFlagger.com specifically as the only approved online training source for flaggers.
As for the rest of the DOT’s, since DOT’s generally do not endorse specific flagger trainers, nothing stated on this website or on the internet should be construed to indicate that any specific DOT directly endorses OnlineFlagger.com specifically.
