Description
     All projects from the simplest maintenance job to a multi-million dollar reconstruction project requires traffic control expertise to make the project as safe as possible for the motorist and workers. The Traffic Control Supervisor on the project needs to be trained in the latest standards, practices and procedures to accomplish this goal.
     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. Several workshops included in this course are designed to provide hands on experience in designing temporary traffic control set ups for various real life situations and recognizing, analyzing and correcting deficiencies. These workshops also afford the opportunity for students to learn to work together as a team and to present solutions to the class. A further objective of this course is to teach the students skills necessary to become an effective Supervisor so they can effectively lead a team in the field.
     The instructors in this course bring years of practical experience in traffic control to the classroom. They present this 2-day class using a state-of -the art power point presentation covering material from the latest edition of the MUTCD. Each student receives a notebook containing all the slides used in the course and a copy of Part VI of the MUTCD. Instructors will spend time with each workshop group providing direction and advice to the groups as they work on their assignments.   
     The students will leave this course with knowledge of how to prepare and implement temporary traffic control plans in the field to make the project as safe as possible for their fellow workers and the motorists and pedestrians going through the project.
