Additional TTAP Classes

The classes listed below are arranged by request as schedule and budget allows. Please contact Karla Sisco for more information: karla.sisco@okstate.edu

CDL EXAM PREP  This class is a one and a half day session designed to prepare individuals to take the state CDL written exam.  Participants will be led through the Model Commercial Driver License Manual, which covers vehicle safety, transporting cargo, the hazardous materials endorsement, the air brakes endorsement, the combination vehicles endorsement, and the tanker endorsement.

Also, course participants will learn how to perform the pre-trip inspection of a vehicle, which is required during the driving portion of the exam.

CRASH DATA COLLECTION  This training will guide you through SAFE-T and give you access to crash data for your area.  State, tribal, and local employees identify problem areas and plan roadway changes use reports generated by the system.  The reports include maps showing locations of collisions and an analysis of when and why collisions occur.   The system has the ability to search for locations by number of collisions, and the lists included in the reports give general information on each collision.  This 3 1/2 hour class is conducted by Oklahoma DOT, Traffic Engineering Division, Collision Analysis & Safety Branch.

DEFENSIVE DRIVING  The National Safety Council's Defensive Driving Course strives to ensure that people get what they need to drive defensively--knowledge, skills and perspective that will help them continue to prevent injuries and save lives.  This 6-hour course helps develop accident avoidance behavior and safe driving practices, which can significantly reduce the number of collisions and citations your drivers might experience.

FIRST AID AND CPR  The objective of this National Safety Council (NSC) Course is to provide first aid and CPR training to provide participants the knowledge and skills to be able to help in an emergency until professional medical care is available.  Successful participants will receive a NSC CPR card valid for 2 years and a First Aid card valid for 3 years. 

DISASTER RECOVERY Each year in the United States transportation agencies are pressed into service to assist their communities in the event of natural or man-made disasters.  The Disaster Response Training Program is for disaster site workers who provide skilled support services (e.g. utility, demolition, debris removal, or heavy equipment operation). The program will make management and labor aware that pre-incident training is essential for ensuring disaster and worker safety and health when responding to natural and man-made disasters.  Specifically, it is recognized that all workers at disaster sites need to be aware of the differences between disaster sites and regular construction or demolition worksites.

ROAD SAFETY PLUS  This 2-hour course will provide instruction in roadway construction safety.  The class informs supervisors of the need to keep workers focused on safety.  Topics include why staying alert is important, how to prevent distractions, what happens if workers become distracted, and encouraging constant safety for workers and motorists.

FLAGGER COURSE  Controlling traffic through work areas is one of the most important - and dangerous - operations in construction maintenance.  The primary objectives of the Flagger Course are to train flaggers to provide safe passage of traffic through and around work areas and to minimize confusion by bringing standard flagging procedures to our nation's highways.

FHWA Every Day Counts Initiatives  The Every Day Counts initiatives are designed to identify and deploy innovation aimed at reducing the time it takes to deliver highway projects, enhance safety, and protect the environment.  

Road Safety Assessment (RSA)  The RSA is a safety performance examination of an existing or future road or intersection by an independent, multidisciplinary team. It qualitatively estimates and reports on potential road safety issues and identifies opportunities for improvements in safety for all road users. The FHWA works with State and local jurisdictions and Tribal Governments to integrate RSAs into the project development process for new roads and intersections, and also encourages RSAs on existing roads and intersections.

The aim of an RSA is to answer the following questions:

* What elements of the road may present a safety concern: to what extent, to which road users, and under what circumstances?

* What opportunities exist to eliminate or mitigate identified safety concerns?

Public agencies with a desire to improve the overall safety performance of roadways under their jurisdiction should be excited about the concept of RSAs. Road safety assessments can be used in any phase of project development from planning and preliminary engineering, design and construction. RSAs can also be used on any sized project from minor intersection and roadway retrofits to mega-projects.

Flagger Training This one-day course covers the fundamentals of flagging procedures in temporary traffic control situations. Students learn the theory of flagging operations in the classroom and then apply them in the field, under traffic, in a controlled environment. Students are proficient in the application of MUTCD Typical Applications 10 and 13 after completion of the class.

Mower Safety Workshop  This is a half-day workshop teaches safe operation around mowing units. Not everyone knows how to operate a mower safely.  In fact, what most people view as common sense can lead to accidents later on. Although accidents are fewer for mowers than some other areas, a number of injuries, even death, may occur if safety practices are ignored or abused.
