Who is IMSA?

IMSA is the oldest known association of its kind in the world and dates back to October 1896. The basic purpose of the organization was to keep its members and others in the profession, up-to-date on proper procedures of construction and maintenance of signal systems and informed on new products and equipment developments. In September 1937, the organization name was officially changed to the “International Municipal Signal Association” (I.M.S.A.).

What other courses are available through IMSA?

IMSA also offers educational and certification programs in Traffic Signals, Work Zone Traffic Control, Municipal and Interior Fire Alarm systems, and Public Safety Dispatcher. At this time we do not offer any IMSA course other than Signs and Markings.

What are the Benefits of These Programs?

These seminars will increase the knowledge of the students which will enhance the safety of motorists, pedestrians, workers, and the general public, and reduce tort liability.
