This course covers the basic concepts and practical applications and operations of traffic signal timing systems for isolated and coordinated intersections. The course engages students through hands-on exercises and real-world examples of signal timing and operations. Some class exercises and demonstrations are taught in a computer lab. A basic knowledge of EXCEL is needed to complete the exercises. NOTE: This is an introductory course in a series of courses on traffic signal operations offered by the Technology Transfer Program. It is strongly recommended that students complete this course before taking either Traffic Signal Operations: Advanced Applications (TE-10) or SYNCHRO and SimTraffic (TE-13). It is also helpful for students to complete this course before taking Type 170 Traffic Signal Controller (TE-08) or Type 2070 Traffic Signal Controller (TE-09).

 The class is for traffic engineers, planners, consultants, and technicians who are new to traffic signal timing. Experienced practitioners who desire a "refresher" course also benefit.
