IMSA Seminars

On Tuesday March 6, 2018 at the Suffolk Hilton Garden Inn, we will be sponsoring review seminars.  An important reason for establishing these seminars is the IMSA TARP program. The TARP program will distribute points for specific subject-related seminars that can be used to meet the IMSA certification renewal requirements. TARP point certificates will be distributed to seminar attendees.

The exhibition, seminars, conference and meals are all provided at no cost to attendees.

The exhibition will open at 8:00 a.m. with a breakfast buffet. Seminars will begin at 9:00 a.m. running in rooms simultaneously. They will break at noon for a lunch buffet in the exhibition hall and continue until 5:00 p.m. The seminars will be provided by contributing sponsors on topics of interest to traffic operations professionals and may be used for IMSA TARP program credit for certification renewal. 

The Middle Atlantic Section IMSA hopes to be able to continue to host these events in Hampton Roads at no cost to the attendees - so your participation is important. IMSA desires to create a venue to build TARP points for certification renewal and the conference is an invaluable opportunity for networking and fellowship for the transportation community as a whole in our region.


IMSA Middle Atlantic Certification Classes and EXAMS

Monday through Thursday at the Hilton Garden Inn, we will be holding Certification Classes and Exams. Middle Atlantic Section IMSA reserves the right to cancel scheduled certification courses and exams for non participation (any payments will be refunded.) This year we are hoping to be able to offer certifications in the major traffic related fields and levels. 

All classes are two day classes, and begin at 8 am and end at 5 pm.

Anyone can challenge an exam in the certifications.  In order to successfully complete, you must also complete any and all prerequisites.  Levels I and II Challenge Exams will be conducted the afternoon of the second day of class  Level III Challenge Exams may be taken either March 6 or 8, 2018.

Registration opens September 1, 2017.

Registration closes on January 15, 2018 so that we can get materials in.  NO EXCEPTIONS!
