Course Description

TxDOT has recognized the need to require a refresher course for those managers and supervisors who are designated as contractor’s responsible person (CRP) or alternate CRP and are responsible for setting up and operating construction work zones on state-owned roadways. The Refresher Course for Contractor’s Responsible Person (HWS415) provides a review of TxDOT-compliant training in basic work zone traffic control setup and maintenance for CRPs. The participant will receive refresher training on the importance of complying with the Texas Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices and updates on all relative TxDOT standards that apply to TxDOT roadways, including the Interstate System.

The participant must show evidence of completion of the Work Zone Traffic Control For Contractor’s Responsible Person (HWS410) course or TxDOT equivalent. This prerequisite may be accomplished by uploading a copy of the certificate of completion after registration using the TEEX Student Portal at least 14 days prior to the start of class. Once received and approved, the participant will be notified by email they have met all prerequisites and have been added to the class roster.
