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.
If you miss the New Flagger Training in April you still have a chance to attend training at the Waterford Hills Race Course.
It's never too late to start, and there are no tuition fees !

Advanced Worker Training
This one day classroom and hands-on training session includes advanced topics such as on-track safety, rescue & first aid, hand signals, etc. and is open to all race track workers (not just Flaggers).
Every third year we conduct a Fire Safety school with professional instructors and hands-on practice extinguishing controlled car fires.
