Traffic Control Person

The BC Construction Safety Alliance’s (BCCSA) comprehensive, two-day standardized course for Traffic Control Persons (TCPs) consists of classroom and practical training and is the only program of its kind accepted by WorkSafeBC under Section 18 of the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation for high-risk traffic control. This two-day training session has been designed to qualify those who work as high-risk TCPs throughout the province of BC. Upon successful completion, TCPs are provided with a three year certification. To requalify, TCPs must complete the one-day requalification course.


While there are certain restrictions on those who may work as a Traffic Control Person, there are no prerequisites for the TCP course.

Required Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

On the 2nd day of the two-day course, you are required to wear CSA approved steel-toed boots with min. 6 inch ankle protection, and clothing to protect you from the weather. Your instructor will provide all other required PPE.

Bagged lunch and work gloves are recommended.


To successfully complete the course, the participant must pass both the written exam with a minimum mark of 80% and the practical evaluation with 100%.  Records of completion are provided by the BCCSA and are valid for three years.
