ATSSA launches its Traffic Sign Technician (TST) training course this spring after investing years in development.

This course prepares public and private sector employees responsible for the installation, location and determination of appropriate roadway signing. It addresses the fundamentals of traffic signing and the role of the sign technician and covers several parts of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices MUTCD, temporary traffic control for short-duration activities and basic sign installation techniques.

ATSSA Master Instructor Bill Birdwell spent time with the ATSSA Sign Committee in creating the course to be sure it met everyone’s standards, said ATSSA Training Program Manager Jessica Scheyder.

“This was a labor of love with the Sign Committee over five years,” she said. “A task force guided the development and worked hand-in-hand with the Sign Committee.”

The new course will be offered April 27 and 28 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET in virtual format with a live instructor interacting with students.

Registration is now open at The course qualifies for 1.50 CEUs.
