(WASHINGTON)— A newly expanded study guide featuring 80 practice questions with answer key and explanation is designed to provide a big boost to industry professionals preparing for the 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.
In May, the program earned the “gold standard” of professional credentialing, achieving American National Standards Institute (ANSI) accreditation under ISO/IEC 17024:2012 international standard.
The digital study guide is available for $99 in the ARTBA Store. It 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.
The SCTPP exam can be taken year-round at a Pearson VUE test center.
The SCTPP program was developed by the top executives and safety professionals from these agencies, organizations and companies: Allan Myers, Arch Insurance Group, Ash Grove, Astec Industries, Austin Industries, Barriere Construction, Cargo Transporters, CRH Americas, Granite Construction, HNTB, Kiewit Infrastructure Group, Laborers’ Health & Safety Fund of North America, Laborers’ Training & Education Fund, Lane Construction, Liberty Mutual Insurance, National Asphalt Pavement Association, National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health, Plastic Safety Systems, Superior Construction, Texas Department of Transportation, The Center for Construction Research & Training, The Vecellio Group, Virginia Tech, Wagman Heavy Civil and WSP USA.

The SCTPP program is a signature initiative of the ARTBA Transportation Development Foundation, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt entity established in 1985 to “promote research, education and public awareness” about the impacts of transportation investment. The Foundation supports an array of initiatives, including educational scholarships, awards, professional development academies, a transportation project safety certification program, roadway work zone safety and training programs, special economic reports and an exhibition on transportation at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.
