The Certified Transportation Planner (CTP) designation is one of three advanced certifications offered to members of the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP). Recognizing “an individual's in-depth knowledge, experience and leadership skills in transportation planning,” the certification is one of the best ways for professionals to distinguish themselves in this vital field.
Why Become CTP Certified?
As cities across the county experience major population growth, and residents continue to look for convenient and sustainable ways to get around, there will be an increased need for planning professionals who specialize in transportation issues. By becoming CTP certified, you gain an important credential that can open the door to new professional opportunities.
Becoming CTP Certified
Becoming CTP certified is a multi-step process that requires:
- Being a member in good standing of the AICP
- Having at least eight years of experience in transportation planning
- Completing three essay questions that demonstrate your experience with transportation planning
- Completing the AICP CTP exam
Keeping your CTP certification valid requires ensuring your AICP continuing education requirements are met. Every two years, AICP members must demonstrate that they have completed 32 credit hours of continuing education, including 1.5 credits in a topic related to professional ethics.
