Join FHWA Master TIMs trainer Diann Wilson as she guides you through NHI’s online course, interspersed with facilitated discussion and real life responder safety examples.

Three injury crashes occur every minute in the United States, putting nearly 39,000 incident responders potentially in harm’s way every day. Congestion from these incidents often generates secondary crashes, further increasing traveler delay and frustration. The longer incident responders remain at the scene, the greater the risk they, and the traveling public, face. A cadre of well-trained responders helps improve traffic incident response. Better incident response improve the safety of responders and drivers, reduces crashes that occur because of incident-related congestion, decreases traffic delays caused by incidents, and can cut incident response time.

The National Traffic Incident Management Responder Training was created by responders for responders. This course provides first responders a shared understanding of the requirements for safe, quick clearance of traffic incident scenes; prompt, reliable and open communication; and motorist and responder safeguards. First responders learn how to operate more efficiently and collectively.

Traffic Incident Management is one in a series of courses in core and specialized safety issues. When all requirements are met, participants will be awarded a Road Safety Champion Program Certificate. (Note: the certificate is not a degree or professional certification).

The Road Safety Champion Program (RSCP) is a certificate program designed to improve the safety training of those responsible for operating, maintaining, designing, and enforcing local roads. The long-term goal is to build a knowledgeable workforce that is motivated to implement safety improvements that reduce injuries and fatalities on rural and local roadways.


This training covers many TIM recommended procedures and techniques, intermingled live session discussions on topics including:

– TIM Fundamentals and Terminology

– Notification and Scene Size-Up

– Safe Vehicle Positioning

– Scene Safety

– Command Responsibilities

– Traffic Management

– Special Circumstances

– Clearance and Termination
