Certified Transport Planner (CTP)
CTP is the letters that distinguish an individual as a Certified Transport Planner. The CTP is a professional qualification that provides a definitive standard for measuring capability and experience in the Transport Planning profession.
CTP and 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.
CTP status indicates professional recognition, from peers and employers, of significant experience and capability to plan, implement, manage and improve transport planning initiatives.
An extensive range of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities provide a CTP with a lifelong career partner. Ongoing professional development ensures individuals are at the leading edge of their profession. Valuable networking opportunities are also provided.
The integrity of the profession is reinforced by the upholding of a code of conduct that ensures the highest standards for integrity, ethics and professionalism.
The CTP programme has been introduced by five prominent membership-based professional associations, and the National Transport and Logistics Centre. These six organisations are represented on the national Transport and Logistics Certification Council, which oversees the management of the programme, and the regular auditing of the professional standards involved.
