A newly expanded study guide featuring 80 practice questions with answer key and explanation will provide a big boost to industry professionals preparing for the ARTBA Foundation’s Safety Certification for Transportation Project Professionals™ (SCTPP) exam.

The SCTPP program was launched in late 2016 to significantly reduce—or ideally eliminate—the 700 motorist and worker fatalities, and nearly 50,000 injuries that occur annually in and around U.S. transportation project sites.  It is targeted at significantly elevating safety awareness among the thousands of non-safety professionals in the industry—planners, designers, owners, field supervisors and inspectors—who are in decision-making roles from project conception through completion.

The aim is to bring thousands of more “eyes” to the task of identifying and mitigating potential hazards for workers and motorists commonly found in transportation work zones—skills identified through the certification.

The SCTPP exam can be taken year-round at a Pearson VUE test center.

The digital study guide is available for $99 in the ARTBA Store. It also includes:

  • Tips for successfully taking a computer-based, multiple-choice exam;
  • A section of study resources with links to Occupational Safety & Health Administration construction regulations most relevant to the exam; and
  • Links to other agencies and organizations with safety information pertinent to the exam.

In May, the SCTPP program earned American National Standards Institute (ANSI) accreditation under ISO/IEC 17024:2012 international standard.
