The Utah Department of Transportation requires all flaggers to be trained and to carry a Flagger Training Certificate. In addition to receiving the training an applicant must also meet age requirements established by the Utah State Labor Commission.
The Flagger Certification is good for a three (3) year period. The flagger must attend a re-certification seminar and be re-certified every three (3) years.
The Utah Department of Transportation is requested on occasion to accept additional certification programs. The Department will review each program, and each acceptable program will be listed in the Utah Department of Transportation Standard Specification Section 01554 Traffic Control.
Some utilities and other government entities conduct their own training, the instructors for this training are certified by UDOT. This certification is only good on roadways under UDOT jurisdiction, while working for the issuing entity. A flagger must receive a new certification from one of the accepted certification programs before working for another employer.”
