What is an IMSA Certification
IMSA Certification Programs are primarily concerned with the evaluation of expertise. As not all agencies have access to standardized training materials, IMSA makes Certification Review Programs available for examinations. These Review Programs are not intended to teach an individual all that he/she needs to know to pass a particular examination. Rather, they are intended to present the fundamentals of areas and an overview of subjects that participants should already be familiar with based on national standards and regulations.
IMSA also offers educational and certification programs in Traffic Signals, Signs and Markings, Work Zone Traffic Control, Municipal and Interior Fire Alarm systems, Fiber Optics, and Transportation Center Systems. To assist governmental agencies in lowering the likelihood of unnecessary legal actions and to increase the quality of public safety personnel, it is the deep conviction of IMSA that a certification program is warranted in each area of public safety operations.
