The Intermediate course is required for all persons with duties that include inspection of work zone traffic control, supervisory responsibilities, VDOT Work Zone Traffic Control Coordinator responsibility, Traffic Control Supervisors and personnel with responsibility for the development of work zone safety policies and procedures. VDOT requires WZTC training every four (4) years.
 
Participants will receive classroom instruction from the Virginia Work Area Protection Manual (VAWAPM) and its supplemental Pocket Guide, flagging operations, and Part 6 of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). Students will participate in multiple hands-on workshop exercises selecting and setting up sample work zones. A written test is given, which includes minimum design standards for temporary traffic control and flagging operations in long-term, intermediate-term, short-term, short duration and mobile type traffic control operations. Within sixty (60) days of successful completion of a training course, each individual shall receive a wallet-sized card, which shows the trainee’s name and verification number, the course category, the date the course was successfully completed, and the expiration date. This certification will also permit the individual to perform flagging operations. An 80% or higher score is required for certification
