Choosing the right FDOT Provider is Important to your success. Even though the MOT Admin authorizes all FDOT providers, not all are created equal. Just like in your industry, there are those that go above and beyond and those that do the minimum. While FDOT creates the TTC training materials, not all FDOT Providers execute them at the same level.
It is important the the FDOT Provider instructors don’t simply read the supplied PowerPoints putting you to sleep. This wastes your time and money and can have a direct impact your exam results.
It is important that when choosing the right FDOT Provider, you know HOW the material is going to be presented. Most importantly, will you get what you need from it to take the exam.
In this post we review what to look for when selecting an FDOT Provider that is going to help you get the most out of the training. You want an Instructor that has experience and can make the instruction of the material personalized and entertaining. This ensures you get the most out of the material and prepared for the exam.

Checklist Of What To Look For In A FDOT Provider
While I’m not aware of anyone teaching FDOT TTC Training without State approval, you should verify the providers credentials. FDOT Providers must renew their credentials every 2 years with the MOT Admin. Taking an exam with a Provider that has an expired certificate, could cost you money and you may need to take the entire course again. You can verify all approved FDOT Providers by going to the MOT Admin website, click here.
Also note that many FDOT Providers are not authorized to complete virtual training. So be sure to verify to avoid any difficulties.
You can see by click here that myTTConline is an approved FDOT Provider for both in-person and virtual training.
In order to be a FDOT TTC instructor, FDOT must actually review the instructor credentials and approve them before they can start teaching. Here are a list of the qualifications to become a FDOT TTC instructor.
- Must be certified themselves in the level they are instructing
- Two years of experience having responsible charge of TTC Plans preparation, inspection, or supervision in one or more of the following highway categories: Design, Construction, Maintenance or Traffic Operations
- Two years of experience having responsible charge of specific work zone activities in one or more of the following highway categories: Design, Construction, Maintenance or Traffic Operations.
Not only does myTTConline’s instructors meet these requirements they individual have over 25years experience with safety at a management and consulting level. They know how to train people to keep others safe.
Is the FDOT Provider making it convenient for you to take the training and exam. This is a big deal to us at myTTConline and that is why we focus on Virtual Live training. With this option you can train and take the exam form the comfort of your own home or office. There is not need to sit in traffic and then try to find a parking space.
We’ve had a bunch of good feedback from many Safety directors comment on this. They like that they can have multiple Superintendents across the state and they don’t have to pull them out of the field to have them travel and in some cases get a hotel to take the training. This alone, can cost more than the training itself.

With COVID changing the world we’ve all had to adapt. This is not an excuse to provide low quality training. There are a handful of FDOT providers that offer virtual live training and we saw this an opportunity to excel. Based on the feedback and testimonials we’ve received, we feel good about what we’ve produced.
We’ve heard of some providers simply sharing their screen, showing A PowerPoint as they read it, really. We knew we could do better and that is why we’ve invested thousands of dollars in our full blown video studio. We have 3 cameras to show different angles, 4k 65′ presentation monitor and a complete switching station.
What this means to you is that we do our best to keep you entertained while your learning. When we need to focus on the power point you’ll see it, when your instructor is answering your questions, you’ll see them. When its time for an interactive table top workshop you have a birds eye view from our top camera.
We are really proud of what we’ve professionally put together and look forward to sharing it with you.
