It's Renewal Time: Membership Renewal? Certification Renewal? Maybe Both!
When you see the word renewal in an email or on an invoice from IMSA, often it may not be clearly understood what it is you need to renew. We are working on our communication around our renewals to help you have a clear understanding of what it is you need to renew. Here are a few pointers as we approach the annual Membership renewal cycle.
Membership Renewal:
  • Based on calendar year and begins in early November every year and runs through March 31st the following year
  • Membership department issues invoice with dues amount
  • Does not renew any certifications only renews membership to continue benefits
  • This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for any questions
Certification Renewal:
  • Renewals happen year round depending on when original certification was awarded
  • Certifications once obtained or renewed, expire after 3 years.
  • Certification department issues an renewal notice/invoice reminder with details regarding how to initiate the renewal process
  • Does not renew membership, just renews certification

Keep an eye out for your 2022 IMSA MEMBERSHIP renewal invoice - coming your way in the next 30 days!






More IMSA Online Certification this fall

This fall IMSA Ontario Trillium Section will be hosting a few more online Certification schools. The following schools are to be held, subject to minimum class size.

Traffic Signals Level I - September 28 & 29 - Registration deadline 11:59 pm September 7

Roadway Lighting Level I - October 26 & 27 - Registration deadline 11:59 pm October 5

Traffic Signals Level I - December 7 & 8 - Registration deadline 11:59 pm November 16

Registration for all courses will close at 11:59 pm on the dates indicated above. This will allow time to complete the front-end work done here in Ontario and to provide sufficient time for the manuals to be delivered to each student from the Ontario Section. If you are working from home, it is advisable to provide your home address on your registration as this will facilitate getting your manual(s) in a timely fashion.

To participate in the course(s) you must have a computer which has a microphone, a camera and sufficient internet band with upload and download speeds to enable you to participate in your Virtual course.

The exam will be done virtually. The exam(s) must be completed within 48 hours after the course ends. You will be given 3 hours to complete the exam and the software will proctor your exam. You will be required to provide government issued photo ID at the beginning of your exam. If the software detects unusual activity during your 3-hour exam you will be advised to refrain from that activity.

The start and end times may vary between the different courses. The start time will be typically 8AM each day. If there are different start times these will be shown when you register. During the course you will be able to communicate with the Moderator and ask questions.

To register for any of these courses you must have your own IMSA account on the IMSA International website at www.imsasafety.org   This will allow you to do all of things necessary to register and take your course.

If you have your IMSA number, you can set up your own account following the instructions in the document called Creation of your own IMSA account which is on the website. If you do not have an account or do not know your IMSA number, please contact the IMSA International office at 1-800-723-4672 and they will assist you.

To register go to www.imsasafety.org. Do not try to register through the Ontario Section website as this is not possible. Once you are in imsasafety.org go to the IMSA Certification tab and enter IMSA Online. Find the Ontario section offerings and enter the Event number. From there it will ask if you are registering for yourself or someone else.   Registration for these courses will be $555US for Members and $655US for non-Members and must be paid by a credit card. To be eligible for Member course fees you must have paid your membership fee for 2021. You must pay the registration fee in advance of the course at the time of registration. The Ontario Section cannot send an Invoice.

Keep in mind the IMSA Ontario Trillium Section is still offering on-site schools for those that wish to get in-person training. Please contact me for more details.




We also offer On-site Certification which adheres to Covid-19 restrictions to companies or organizations. For additional information, please contact Rob Decleir at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
