Traffic Signal Inspector Level I
The IMSA Traffic Signal Inspector Certification Program is designed to ensure public safety by helping individuals to understand fundamental concepts associated with the inspection for construction of traffic signal installations. Traffic Signals are a key element in our transportation system and the proper operation of these signals is of paramount importance in maintaining reasonable levels of mobility. Knowledgeable traffic signal inspection is required to ensure that proper/specified construction practices are followed during signal installation resulting in signals that operate as intended. Knowledgeable inspection is also a key element in limiting the liability exposure of governmental agencies associated with malfunctioning traffic signals.
Traffic Signal Inspector Certification is recommended for all individuals involved in the inspection of traffic signal construction. It is also a valuable course for contractor personnel, since it provides an inspector’s viewpoint of traffic signal construction.
Topics covered in the Traffic Signal Inspector Certification Course Manual include:
IMSA Work Zone Temporary Traffic Control Technician Certification or equivalent as approved by the IMSA Education & Certification Manager.
Effective August 1, 2018 IMSA Traffic Signal Technician Level I Certification will be required as a prerequisite for this program.
