Safety Certification Earns Accreditation

May 10, 2018

ARTBA Foundation’s “Safety Certification for Transportation Project Professionals” Program Earns ANSI Accreditation.

Certification program tests and recognizes an individual’s knowledge of the core competencies needed to recognize and mitigate safety hazards on transportation project sites

The ARTBA Foundation has launched a new “Transportation Construction Safety Center” found at www.artbasafetycenter.org.

The American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) Foundation’s certification program to test and recognize an individual’s knowledge of the core competencies needed to recognize and mitigate safety hazards on transportation project sites has earned the “gold standard” of professional credentialing.

ARTBA announced May 7th the Safety Certification for Transportation Project Professionals (SCTPP) Program, launched in late 2016, has been accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) under the ISO/IEC 17024:2012 international standard. ANSI accreditation signifies the certificate holder has completed a prescribed course of study designed specifically to meet pre-defined industry requirements and that the program’s sponsor has met, and continues to meet, international standards for quality improvement.  It distinguishes industry- or government-developed professional credentialing programs from “self-certified” certificate courses offered by organizations and private vendors.  

The approval by ANSI’s Professional Certification Accreditation Committee (PCAC) comes following the foundation’s submission of a 550-page application, rigorous audits of its management systems and psychometric procedures, and detailed examination of the test’s development and administrative processes.
