August 1, 2012
Enjoyed the course. Clarified mistakes I have made controlling traffic for oversize loads on/off loading, gave me a much greater understanding of traffic control in general and confirmed or enhanced knowledge I already had from my experiences with traffic control.
I recently took the Traffic Control Person course with Vicki Boesterd as the course instructor. The course was extremely informative and I came away with a much greater understanding of the importance of the Traffic Control Person and don’t get so grumpy while waiting in line ups anymore as I know they are just doing their job to make everyone safe!! I will say I was overwhelmed with the information on the first day, and was terrified I would not pass the exam or make it through the practical portion of the course, but I went home the first night, did my practice exam and went the second day for the practical portion - it was a great day and Vicki takes the time in the classroom first to make sure you know your signals and explains and makes sure everyone knows what they are doing, and then you go to a designated road for practice in the real world!! It may take 5 minutes for some or longer for others, but she makes sure you stay out on the road until you are comfortable with everything before moving on. If Vicki didn’t take the time to explain and make sure everyone is comfortable in what they are doing, I would not have passed. I passed and am currently looking for work in the Cariboo area. I would recommend this course to anyone who is thinking about it – I waited almost 5 years before making the decision to change careers!! Don’t delay sign up today!!!

The second you walk into Vicki's class you feel comfortable and
welcome. You get to know Vicki quite quickly as she is open with sharing
not only stories from the field, but also stories from her personal
As the class progresses she covers all the questions you ever had and
settle the doubts. Before continuing on to new subjects, she makes sure
are comfortable with what you just learned and to not continue if you
have questions. From a person who took the course 5 years previously
had a 5 year leave, I feel I was 100% more comfortable going out onto
road then when I did in 2000. During the practical part of the course,
leaves you on the road till she is sure that everyone in the class is
ready, whether it took just 5 minutes to 20 minutes. I am definately
that the course takes more time to ensure everyone's safety is looked
I recently took the Traffic Control Person course, for the second time in June. My teacher was very helpful and informative in showing us what the job actually entailled, although we were in the classroom it felt more like we were on the road because she made an extra effort to bring real life situatuions to life. She actually made me realize how critical it was that I always be alert and on my best behavior. I never thought all those things could happen on a work site but when I took my first course I never was made aware of the danger to the extent that I was with this instructor. I enjoyed the class a lot and got very involved with it, also I feel Vicky is a very good instructor and should be considered a valuable asset to your company. She shines and has a lot to offer people and she cares, that is what counts. I would gladly recommend her to anyone taking the course. She has a gift of teaching that should not be overlooked.....
Having just completed the TCP training course only one week ago, everything is still pretty vivid. I don't think i would have done as well if Vicki wasn't the instructor. She made me feel really comfortable in class, as well
as out on the road on the second day. She always emphasizes the importance of safety on the job site, which is most critical. If you can't be safe on this job, you're in the wrong industry. If you're out there looking for an interesting, exciting job, take this course. Just make sure vicki is your instructor, you'll learn a lot, but you'll have a blast doing it. Like i said, at the time i'm writing this, it's been one week since i completed the
course... right now, i've already been hired by a company.
I have just finished taking the TCP (Traffic Control Person) course with Vicki G. being the course instructor and am happy to say I passed.
Now having taken the course, I have a better understanding, and am more aware of how important it is that the people that control traffic are trained with, a set guideline that is use by all TCP's province wide. With Vicki teaching everyone in the class to be safety aware and remain in control only helps everyone in making it thru a work site safe. I tip my hard hat to you Vicki,
I recommend Vicki’s class to everyone.
This past weekend I just completed the course for the traffic control person
After debating on taking the traffic control person course for about a year
I recently decided to take it at roadsmart. But after reading the manuals/
I took the 2 day course to become a certified TCP and was very nervous to start but once I got there and met everyone I was quite pleased. The teaching methods are very straight forward and just to make sure if you don't get all the material it's reviewed in class. I was very pleased on how our instructor Vicki handled the class with a warm welcome and a pleasant fun attitude. When we got on the road we were instructed in a very clear manner. Vicki took control of the situation making sure everything kept to a safe environment which helped a lot with the training of the course. I would recommend everyone to take this course because it teaches you not only how to work as a TCP but good communication skills as well.
Having just finished the TCP training I wanted to take a quick minute to
say what an excellent instructor I had. From the moment I walked into the
classroom I felt like I had known Vicki Boesterd my entire life.
My learning experience was great, more than I expected it
I was rather nervous when I walked into the classroom for my two day course with Vicki B. I had done some reading in preparation but I also knew that there was still alot of material to cover in such a short time. Upon entering the classroom, I found a lady that filled up the room with her presence. She was funny, polite, knowledgeable and you could tell that she loves what she does and it shows.
