About our Flagger program

The first step to a new career is certification

The construction industry is growing, and with it the need for qualified, certified flaggers. Evergreen Safety Council’s flagger certification is approved by the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) and is accepted in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana.

More than a STOP/SLOW paddle

Flaggers help direct traffic through work zones, but they are also responsible for helping to set up and take down signs, cones, and other traffic control equipment. Flagger certification may also be required for many other jobs that involve temporarily rerouting or directing traffic.

Can I earn my WA flagger certification online?

WSDOT does not allow flagger training to take place online. All classes must be in person. We offer classes in both Eastern and Western Washington! Visit our registration page for details.
