While there are no specific courses required to sit for the certification exam, a number of resources can be helpful, including the Occupational Safety & Health Administration, Federal Highway Administration, and National Work Zone Safety Information Clearinghouse. ARTBA also offers optional online training courses to help candidates prep for the exam.

The ARTBA Online Learning Center offers engaging courses on a range of transportation construction topics. Our courses, which offer Professional Development Hours (PDHs), are developed by industry experts to help you train for career advancement, prepare for certification exams, and to keep on top of  new technologies and regulations.

These PDHs are pre-approved to meet professional licensing requirements for engineers in Florida, North Carolina, and New York. They are accepted in the 38 other states that follow the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) Model Rules for continual professional competency.
