Work Zone Safety - Education & Training

At J.M. Teague Engineering & Planning, we believe that excellence depends not only on achieving the highest level of professional standards for the services we offer but in providing first-rate education and training for other local professionals whose work is essential to public safety and community confidence. That includes everything from work zone flaggers and property developers to local planning boards and school systems. JMTE Academy offers NCDOT-approved training and certifications in Work Zone Safety, Flagging, and Flagger Instructor.

Many of our courses are available for continuing professional competency in multiple fields, including work zone supervisors, surveyors, professional and safety engineers, insurance professionals, and more. We offer onsite industry-specific courses as well as periodic training opportunities for individuals who need to obtain or renew certifications. Additional courses can be prepared and presented on request.

We take pride in structuring our courses to incorporate hands-on experience, using current law and real-life examples of the kinds of transportation safety issues that arise in communities. We’ll do our best to make sure that everyone – from members of the public to work zone employees – get home safely every day.

We also offer custom-designed courses such as Planning Board Orientation Training, Quasi-Judicial Hearings, MUTCD Overview and Compliance, Traffic Signal Operation, and Tort Liability, and can customize training opportunities for local and state governments, local businesses and industry, developers, insurance agencies, property associations, schools, and religious institutions. Courses may be held at or near your workplace to minimize your travel requirements.
