Introduction to Traffic Signal Timing

COURSE NO: C02-070
Introduction to Traffic Signal Timing
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course will establish, through slides and discussions, the concepts and principals used in developing or interpreting traffic signal timing parameters.


The material covered in this online PDH course is intended to provide a practical overview of how to develop and interpret traffic signal timings.  Since fully actuated controller operation demonstrates the most sophisticated features and capabilities with respect to signal timing, the explanation of timing concepts centers on this mode of controller operation.


This 2 PDH online course is intended for civil and electrical engineers and technicians who are interested in learning more about modern traffic signal operation. It is recommended that you take Introduction to Traffic Signal Phasing (CED Course C02-071) prior to taking this course to better prepare you.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understanding of Basic Timing Intervals
  • Knowledge of Phase Termination Modes
  • Gain Familiarity with the Development of Change Interval Timing
  • Knowledge of Pedestrian Timing Procedures
  • Understanding of Volume Density Operation
