This is a two-day event that will guide the instructor through the materials and show them how to train pilot/escort vehicle operators to the standards set by the Washington State Traffic Control Oversight Committee.

Upon successful completion of this two-day session, which includes passing an open-book exam with a score of 80% or better, the instructor is qualified to train pilot/escort vehicle operators (P/EVOs) and issue the Washington State certification card.

The instructor certification is valid for three years. At the end of three years, they are required to take a one-day (6–8 hours) refresher course.

Students who pass the open-book test and meet all prerequisites will be reissued a current P/EVO card following participation in the instructor training session.

Other Expenses
