Virtual Event Virtual Event

Advancing Your Career Through Certification

How can you differentiate yourself in today’s competitive job market? One avenue is demonstrating advanced knowledge and expertise as well as a high level of dedication through the achievement of certification.

This webinar will present an overview about the Professional Traffic Operations Engineer (PTOE) and Professional Transportation Planner (PTP); Road Safety Professional, Level 1 (RSP1); and Road Safety Professional Level 2 (RSP2) – certifications offered by the Transportation Professional Certification Board ( In this webinar, we will provide in-depth information about the RSP certification.

The RSP certification establishes a minimum level of knowledge based on the current state of practice, encourages professional development and growth by applying new concepts, and creates an environment for universities to expand their curriculum to produce graduates that are proficient in the field of safety. Certified road safety professionals will be recognized for their knowledge, experience, and expertise in road safety.

With increasing emphasis being placed on consideration of safety in all aspects of transportation management, the need to recognize road safety as a distinct discipline becomes evident. In 2016, the Transportation Professional Certification Board (TPCB) began efforts to develop a Road Safety Professional Certification (RSP). This effort is supported by a broad cross-section of transportation and safety organizations from the United States and Canada and provides two certification levels. This webinar will describe the areas that are covered under RSP Level 1 and RSP Level 2-Infrastructure and Behaviour and how they relate to consideration of safety within an individual’s job. This webinar will also provide the information needed to register and prepare for the certification exams.

Participants will also hear about the preparatory resources available through ITE as well as general information about the certification process.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how certification can benefit your career development and make you more attractive to prospective employers
  • The attendees will become familiar with the certifications offered by Transportation Professional Certification Board (TPCB)
