Transport Planning Professional

The Transport Planning Professional (TPP) qualification enhances the standing of transport planning as a career and acknowledges transport planners as respected professionals, whilst encouraging the development of the skills needed to tackle the major challenges facing the transport sector.

The TPP qualification provides professional recognition for transport planners in the same way that Chartered Engineer recognises the highest level of engineering competence.
