Ketchikan Correctional Center’s Flagger’s Class

Alaska Department of Corrections Ketchikan Correctional Center held it’s first Flagger’s Class in five years recently.

Thirteen inmates took part in the day-long American Traffic Safety Services Association class which could lead to flagger certification after passing the National Flagger Examination test.

Flagger jobs are in high demand in the Ketchikan area with numerous large and small highway projects taking place in the community and flagger certification will give KCC inmates a leg up in getting work on those projects.

The Flagger class is part of KCC’s commitment to ensuring inmates are successful in their reentry efforts.
