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.

- Ensuring that the motoring public has priority over work related traffic, while ensuring that work is
