Traffic Control Supervisor

What is the difference between a TCS and TCT?

TCS stands for Traffic Control Supervisor.

The TCS ensures that the traffic control measures shown on the approved traffic control plans are properly implemented, operating, and documented on the project. The contractor’s TCS may not be required full time on a given project, but is required to perform all duties required by the specifications. The TCS is responsible to be on the project whenever traffic control labor is being utilized, or less frequently if authorized by the engineer.


TCT is a Traffic Control Technician.

The TCT is an apprentice position, indicating an individual who has not obtained enough hours and/or experience to be a TCS but has passed the Traffic Control Supervisors Course. The TCT can perform some of the duties of the TCS under the TCS’s supervision. (Note: The TCT is not a recognized certification in Washington; Idaho offers a separate course for a TCT.)

What is required to get a TCT certification?

To be recognized as a traffic control technician (TCT) under the Evergreen Safety Council program, the candidate must:

1. Possess a current Flagger Certification card recognized by the Department of Transportation.

2. Successfully complete the TCS course and exam with a score of 80% or better.

Certification as a TCS requires the accumulation and documentation of one year of experience in traffic control–related tasks (2,000 work hours = 1 year, and may be accumulated over multiple years). Candidates must then take the one-day recertification class and pass the exam. Review TCS certification requirements when trying to achieve your TCS certification.

How do you recertify as a TCS?

Recertification is accomplished by successfully completing a one-day class and a score of 80% or better on the recertification exam. Evergreen Safety Council regularly offers one-day recertification classes.

To qualify for the recertification course you must submit the following information:

1. A current state-approved Flagger Certification card.

2. A copy of your current TCS or TCT certificate.

If your Oregon, Idaho or Washington TCS card expires, you have 60 days to take the one-day recertification. However, you cannot work as a certified TCS if your card is expired.
