This twelve-session live-online training course is intended to help transportation engineers prepare for the California Traffic Engineer exam to become a professional Traffic Engineer in California. The course includes a set of sample problems for each session with fully developed solutions to give examinees more opportunity to hone in their test-taking skills. The twelve sessions are designed to cover the topics identified on the TRAFFIC ENGINEER EXAMINATION CONTENT OUTLINE on the California Board for Professional Engineers, Land Surveyors, and Geologists website. It provides strategies and techniques needed to manage time and solve exam questions under pressure, and apply required manuals, handbooks and references, such as California Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (CA MUTCD 2014), Highway Capacity Manual (HCM), Caltrans Traffic Manual, ITE Trip Generation Handbook and ITE Parking Generation Handbook to solve traffic engineering problems.
Throughout the course, practice exam problems and solutions covering all three main areas of traffic engineering-planning, operations, and design-are used. The course is taught by a team of expert practicing traffic engineers. We will be using our an online learning management system (LMS). The LMS allows ongoing online communication with the expert instructors throughout the training. Students will be given problem sets to work on in between online training sessions, which can be submitted online via the LMS.
