Safety Certification for Transportation Project Professionals

Safety Certification for Transportation Project Professionals

Coordinated through Professional Testing (PTI).

ARTBA Transportation Development Foundation

The Vision:

“To ensure the safety and well-being of construction workers, motorists, truck drivers, pedestrians and their families by making transportation project sites worldwide zero-incident zones.”

“The Safety Certification for Transportation Project Professionals” (SCTPP) program – identification of the target audience, core competencies to test, and the exam itself – was developed by leading executives and safety professionals in the transportation infrastructure industry. Thus, the SCTPP credential shows your employer and peers that you can identify common hazards found on transportation project sites and correct them to prevent safety incidents that could result in deaths or injuries. Earning the professional certification also provides you with a competitive edge in the work place because it demonstrates your command of internationally-recognized core competencies for safety awareness and risk management on transportation projects.

Before scheduling a SCTPP exam, you must meet the prerequisites, apply, pay the designated fee, and receive an authorization-to-test email from the ARTBA Certification Team. For more information, visit the ARTBA SCTPP Certification Website (
