New transport planner qualification

A new transport planner's qualification was launched today.

The Professional Transport Planner (PTP) qualification was developed by the Institution of Highways & Transportation (IHT) in conjunction with the Transport Planning Society (TPS).

The PTP qualification is based on the National Occupational Standards for Transport Planning developed by GoSkills and TPS and provides professional recognition for transport planners at a level that equates to that of Chartered Engineer.

Candidates for the PTP will need to demonstrate an appreciation of a broad range of transport planning procedures and techniques.

According to IHT President Mike Slinn, "We provide professional qualifications that give new members of our profession something to aim for.

"For many years we have provided a Chartered Engineer qualification for highways and transport engineers. But not all of our members are engineers; about 40% consider themselves to be transport planners."
