Recognising Professional Excellence in Transport Planning

Certified Transport Planner (CTP)

The CTP is a professional qualification that provides a definitive standard for measuring capability and experience in the Transport Planning profession.

The CTP brings together the breadth and depth of skills required of a modern Transport Planner. The CTP unifies the many disciplines – such as Engineering, Town Planning, Geography, and Economics – that make up the profession.

About the CTP Program 

Traffic and transport planning and management is an integrated activity involving traffic engineering, land-use planning, social science, economics and environmental matters associated with generation of traffic for the safe and efficient movement of people and goods by road and rail.  Practitioners work in local government, state road traffic and transport authorities, research institutes and in consulting.

CTP status indicates professional recognition, from peers and employers, of significant experience and capability to plan, implement, manage and improve transport planning initiatives.

Certified Professional Development (CPD) 

The certification programme will become a life partner for those attaining CTP certification, as continuing professional development is crucial to maintaining CTP status.

The commitment to continuing professional development by the Certificate holder is a significant advantage to their employers as it underpins currency of skills and knowledge.
