Certification as a Professional Traffic Operations Engineer® (PTOE) is a powerful demonstration of requisite knowledge, skill and ability in the specialized application of traffic operations engineering.

The certification process, which has been adopted for professional traffic operations engineers, requires that the holder be a licensed professional engineer if he or she practices in the United States, Canada or any other country that provides governmental licensing of engineers.

This certification process builds on and supports the practice of professional engineering registration. It is a long-term investment in one's professional career, which can be presented with pride!
