Traffic Control Person (Level 1)

This course provides minimum criteria for the development and delivery of TCP Level 1 certification training. It was developed in consideration of research findings and sections 373-375 of the Newfoundland and Labrador Occupational Health and Safety Regulations. Section 374 (5) states that a person shall not work as a traffic control person after January 1, 2011 unless he or she has completed a traffic control certification training program prescribed by WorkplaceNL.

Effective January 2020, WorkplaceNL will administer two standardized traffic control training programs that address the specific needs of TCPs.
