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. 

 Level I review material has been derived from the MUTCD.  This manual has an overview of  traffic control signs and markings, it covers applications of:

  • Regulatory signs
  • Warning 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
  • Emergency management signing and an appendices

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

  • FHWA's Standard Highway Signs
    FHWA's Standard Alphabets For Highway Signs and Pavement Markings
  • TRB's NCHRP Synthesis 157: Maintenance Management of Street and Highway Signs
  • ITE's Traffic Engineering Handbook
