Transportation Professional Roles and License Renewal Requirements

Read about different roles and what is needed to renew your professional license

PTOE

Professional Traffic Operations Engineer®

PTOE certification is a powerful demonstration of requisite knowledge, skill and ability in the specialized application of traffic operations engineering. The certification process, which has been adopted for professional traffic operations engineers, requires that the holder be a licensed professional engineer if he or she practices in the United States, Canada or any other country that provides governmental licensing of engineers. License renewal requirement: 45 hours every three (3) years.

PTP

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. 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 in accordance with a set of objectives. License renewal requirement: 45 hours every three (3) years.

RSP1

Road Safety Professional® (Level 1)

Those achieving RSP Level 1 certification will have demonstrated proficiency in the foundations of road safety principles. The exam is for a broad audience of professionals who in the performance of their work make decisions or take actions that potentially impact the safety of the traveling public. This includes those in the engineering, motor vehicle, behavioral, law enforcement, and emergency response communities. License renewal requirement: 24 hours every three (3) years.

RSP1

Road Safety Professional® (Level 2)

RSP Level 2 certification is geared toward professionals whose primary job functions are directed at improving the safety performance of the surface transportation system. It is for professionals responsible for developing and implementing engineering or behavioral programs aimed at reducing the number of fatalities and injuries due to road crashes. Prospective certificants will select between a Level 2 certification with a “behavioral specialty” or Level 2 certification with an “infrastructure specialty.” License renewal requirement: 45 hours every three (3) years.

RSP1_SA

Road Safety Professional® – Saudia Arabia (Level 1)

WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR CERTIFICATION AS A PROFESSIONAL TRAFFIC OPERATIONS ENGINEER®?

The primary requirement is that the applicant passes a professionally created written examination. However, to be admitted to the examination, the applicant must hold a valid license to practice civil, mechanical, electrical or general professional engineering if he or she resides in any jurisdiction issuing such registration. To renew your PE licence please visit our PDH Online Continuing Education Home Page. Applicants from countries that do not license professional engineers must submit evidence that they have professional status in their country equivalent to professional licensure in the United States or Canada.

The applicant must also have at least four years of professional practice in traffic operations engineering. (Advanced education may be substituted for some of this experience.)

WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF A PROFESSIONAL TRAFFIC OPERATIONS ENGINEER®?

A Professional Traffic Operations Engineer® is a person who applies a comprehensive knowledge of technology and scientific principles acquired through study and experience to the supervision of day-to-day operation of traffic systems. Responsibilities often include the analysis of those operations, detection of problems and deficiencies, setting of priorities, assignment of resources and development of improvements in operations through geometric design, traffic control or other means. The Professional Traffic Operations Engineer® may carry out some but not all of the above duties or serve as a consultant to individuals with the above responsibilities.

Traffic Operations Engineering generally includes:

  • Traffic Operation Analysis
  • Operational Effects of Geometric Designs
  • Traffic Safety
  • Traffic Control Devices
  • Traffic Engineering Studies
  • Social, Environmental and Institutional Issues

WHAT IS THE RELATIONSHIP OF THE PTOE TO PROFESSIONAL ENGINEERING REGISTRATION?

The certification process which has been adopted for Professional Traffic Operations Engineers® requires that the holder be a licensed professional engineer if he or she practices in the United States, Canada or any other country that provides governmental licensing of engineers. Thus this certification process builds on and supports the practice of professional engineering registration!

DOES TPCB AUDIT RENEWALS AND SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION?

In the certification and licensure industry, it has become common for a certain percentage of recertification applicants’ attestation materials to be audited and verified. TPCB (Transportation Professional Certification Board) has been working with its psychometricians to determine that percentage as well as the process that must be implemented to reapply for its accreditation. TPCB has implemented a policy in which 20% of application materials will be audited which means that the certificant will be required to provide documentation as backup to support the application. Additionally, TPCB must reserve the right to selectively audit individuals in certain circumstances such as:

  1. Individuals who were previously audited and did not meet the standards;
  2. Individuals who have been given a hardship;
  3. Individuals who may be subject to discipline by the TPCB Board.
