Description of Occupational Work

This class series uses five levels in the Engineering, Planning, Technical Services occupational group, Electronics occupational series and describes work diagnosing, troubleshooting, repairing, constructing, and designing a variety of equipment associated with intelligent transportation systems such as traffic signals, traffic counters, variable message and variable speed limit signs, traffic cameras, weather stations, AM radio, and wireless radio systems.

Note:  This career ladder series incorporates levels I, II, III, and IV.  The I level is to provide entry for hiring new employees into the class series but does not preclude hiring new employees at higher levels. Employees may be promoted through the career ladder in accordance with minimum qualifications and promotional standards. Promotional standards, a selection document under separate cover, sets forth the criteria that define and describe the requirements that must be met at each level. Advancement of employees through the career ladder is dependent on an agency’s/department’s operational needs and distribution of work.
 
The Intelligent Transportation Systems Supervisor level, although not part of the career ladder, provides competitive opportunity for movement of employees.

Levels of Work

Intelligent Transportation Systems Technician I 

This is the trainee level receiving on-the-job training from a technical supervisor. Work includes assisting in the diagnosing, troubleshooting, and repair of intelligent transportation systems equipment under close supervision. 

Intelligent Transportation Systems Technician II
 
This is the full-performance level responsible for performing the full range of Essential Functions independently under the supervision of a technical supervisor. Contacts include law enforcement, utility companies, private contractors, and the public for the purpose of ensuring intelligent transportation systems equipment functions appropriately. 

Intelligent Transportation Systems Technician III
 
This is the advanced level responsible for constructing intelligent transportation systems configurations by interpreting blueprints, schematics, and wiring diagrams. Work includes diagnosing, troubleshooting and repairing complex intelligent transportation systems equipment problems requiring communications systems diagnosis, fiber tipping and splicing, and cabling repair.  Employees may also train and provide guidance to other technicians in the diagnosing, troubleshooting, and repair of the full range of intelligent transportation systems equipment. 

Intelligent Transportation Systems Technician IV

This is the expert level responsible for designing intelligent transportation systems configurations which includes developing wiring diagrams and schematics. Work includes developing appropriate modifications to existing intelligent transportation systems equipment to achieve goals and objectives. Employees may also train and provide guidance to other technicians in the diagnosing, troubleshooting, repair, and construction of the full range of intelligent transportation systems configurations. 

Intelligent Transportation Systems Supervisor
 
This is the supervisory level responsible for supervising Intelligent Transportation Systems activities. Incumbents at this level receive administrative supervision and coordinate the diagnosing, troubleshooting, repair, construction, and design of intelligent transportation systems configurations for a regional or specialty area. Work includes analyzing the effectiveness of intelligent transportation systems infrastructure and making appropriate modifications as needed. Employees also monitor contract work for compliance with contract terms and specifications, approve progress payments, and recommend approval of final payments. Contacts include law enforcement, utility companies, private contractors, engineers, and the public for the purpose of developing, coordinating, and ensuring an integrated and effective intelligent transportation systems operations. 

Supervision is exercised over at least two or more merit full time positions per the Merit Rules. The elements of supervision include planning, assigning, reviewing, evaluating, coaching, training, recommending hire/fire, and discipline.
