Traffic Control Supervisor

Traffic Control Supervisor (TCS)



The TCS course is designed to train those who will be actively involved in designing or setting up and maintaining temporary traffic control in a work zone. It moves from the concepts and techniques taught in the TCT course to the implementation of traffic control plans and techniques for installation and removal. Students are taught how to read and interpret plans and specifications and implement them in the field. Workshops included in the course are designed to provide real world examples in designing temporary traffic control setups and also recognizing, analyzing and correcting deficiencies. An additional, vital objective of this course is teaching students the skills necessary to become an effective supervisor, capable of leading a team in the field.

State-specific TCS training is required in CA, LA, MI, MN, NC, PA, TX, and UT.

State-specific TCS training is also required in FL, VA, and WA.  For those courses, please visit our Find A Course page, select the TTC section, and look for the applicable state.

Some national training states may accept state-specific training, while others may not. If applicable, please confirm that your state will accept another state's training before registering.
