Sign & Pavement Marking Technician Level I

A Sign & Pavement Marking Technician Level I should, by nature of his certification title, have mastered the basic principles behind signing and pavement marking. Although the individual who is approved to take the Level I exam may have had a lot of field experience, the exam will require that he be able to communicate this knowledge in a written format. The best way to prepare for this challenge is to begin to review the topics that will be covered on the exam.

  • Regulatory signs

  • Guide signs
  • Tourist oriented directional signs
  • Markings and markers
  • Traffic control in school areas
  • Bicycle traffic control devices
  • Safety and temporary traffic control
  • Installation of signs and markings

The remaining material which will be reviewed in class has been derived from the following publications:
