National TIM Training Certificate

Through a special agreement with the Federal Highway Administration, the Responder Safety Learning Network (RSLN) offers a National TIM Training Certificate for registered users who complete ten specific RSLN online self-paced programs.

To earn credit for each program, you must view the program in its entirety and pass the Skills Challenge test. Once you earn credit for all ten programs, you will be able to download a special certificate that is the equivalent of completing the National Traffic Incident Management Responder Training Program.

When you have completed all the programs, go to the User Console and click National TIM Training Certificate to download your certificate. You can also access the certificate from your Completed Programs page and from each required program's details page. Once you have earned the certificate, it will be listed in your transcript. If you have any technical problems, please file a support ticket.
