Traffic Signal Design and Operation (2-Day, Instructor-Led Course) National Highway Institute. Engineering tools are available to design, optimize, analyze, and simulate traffic flow. This course addresses the application of the "Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices" (MUTCD) to intersection displays, as well as signal timing. Included in this course is a discussion of support selection, signal head placement, detection design, and the selection of signal control and timings. A general step-by-step procedure is presented for preparing a set of traffic signal design plans. This 3 PDH online course is intended for traffic engineers and transportation design. The course is an introduction to the way traffic signals work and how they are designed. It is an introduction and not intended to enable those taking the course to design signal controlled junctions in detail, but will allow more informed decisions in your day-to-day work and the identification of further useful training.

Students will need to bring a laptop. Traffic signal technicians need to be skilled in many areas, such as rigging, where they will be required to lift heavy and awkward equipment, such as poles and traffic signal mast arms. They need to know what is required to set up a traffic work zone area and the hazards of working in such an area.
