Online Flagger Certification

LTAP administers the online flagger certification for the Nebraska's Department of Transportation (NDOT). This course is for personnel external to NDOT. NDOT personnel should contact their supervisor about flagger certification.

NDOT is committed to providing the traveling public with work zone traffic control that is clear, effective, and capable of affording safe passage through our construction areas. The NDOT, by specification, utilizes a program of flagger training and certification. The course can be completed by individuals online or in NDOT-approved groups and includes two documents and a 47-minute video. Completion of the course requires you to successfully pass the quiz and to print a certificate.

Certifications are valid for two years.

A pdf of current Nebraska Flagging Certificate holders is updated weekly and available, by name or by employer.
