In partnership with Universal Health and Safety (The Universal Group)
Construction flagging is a challenging job and needs the utmost attention and care. The Traffic Control Person course is required to be completed prior to becoming a flagger. CSA approved steel toed boots with ankle support are required during this course.
A person must be at least 16 years old and have the physical ability to perform the skills required to complete the learning tasks. No previous flagger training is required.
Once completed, each graduating student is issued a three-year TCP certificate that allows them the ability to work anywhere in BC as a Traffic Control Person. This is recognized by WorkSafeBC as a valid High-Risk TCP certificate in the province. There is a multiple choice exam that requires a minimum score of 80%. There is also a practical skills session on the roadway that each student must pass.
The Universal Group may offer immediate TCP employment opportunities to qualified candidates.
