Congratulations to Grady Vaughan, Robert Browning, and Lester Atkins on passing the Professional Transportation Planner (PTP) certification exam which is administered by the Transportation Professional Certification Board (TPCB) and recognizes recipients for their specialized knowledge and skill in transportation planning.
Grady, Robert, and Les are members of our longstanding Transportation Planning team.
As the TPCB states:
“The Professional Transportation Planner® (PTP) certification program is designed for candidates who have a wide-range of education and experience in transportation planning. Currently, no other certification program is offered that specifically addresses the work performed by transportation planners.
As the TPCB states, transportation planning is the “discipline that examines and evaluates the potential of future actions to improve movement of people and goods by motor vehicle, public transportation, walking and cycling.”
The PTP exam covers a wide range of topics, including:
- Land Use and Transportation Relationships
- Needs Assessment for Short- and Long-Range Planning
- Transportation System Planning for Short- and Long-Range Goals
- Transportation System Evaluation
- Public Policy
- Environmental AnalysesPlan Implementation
The PTP exam is scheduled for six hours, is in-person, closed book, requires mathematical applications, and requires a minimum of four years professional experience in the transportation, highway safety, or public health fields.
Congratulations once again to Grady, Robert, and Les!
