IMSA Traffic Signals Level I offered in Anchorage Feb 20 & 21

Please read below for information on an upcoming local opportunity to get International Municipal Signal Association (IMSA) training for Traffic Signal Technician Level I Certification.

As the AKDOT&PF continues to move toward requiring IMSA Level II Certification for signal engineers on State facilities, it is very important for engineers that wish to design signals for the AKDOT&PF to plan for and achieve a Traffic Signal Technician Level II  certification. This training and certification opportunity provides the required background information that will allow the technician to learn the material taught in the Level II certification courses.

The Level I class will be offered on Tues & Weds, Feb 20 & 21, at the MOA Transit Center Conference Rm from 8:30 to 4:30.   Depending on enrollment, the class may be moved to another location near the airport.

Cost is $350 for IMSA members and $400 for non-IMSA members.  The cost of the required workbook is $50.  If you bring a previously purchased  workbook, you will not be required to purchase one for the class.

If you only want to take the test, the fee is $100 for members and $150 for non-members.  The test will be offered at the end of the Level I course on the afternoon of the 21st

If you plan to attend or have questions about the certification requirement, please contact:
