Flagging & Communications training sessions are held throughout the season.

Training takes place at Waterford Hills and is sponsored by MTM, WHRRI and SCCA-Detroit,
and is a combination of classroom and hands-on learning.

New Flagger School

The school consists of a Saturday morning classroom session, where we teach you the basics of flagging and communications, including: The Flags, Basic Communications, Safety, Equipment (what you need, what to wear, what to bring).

After the morning session, students will be taken on a tour of the paddock and introduced to the various car classes and vehicle types.

The remainder of the afternoon will be spent working with our experienced Marshals on a turn station, putting into practice everything they learned during the morning.

Students are encouraged to return on Sunday, where they will once again work on-track with our experienced Marshals.
