Description

This twelve-session, live, online training course is intended to help traffic 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), Highway Capacity Manual (HCM), Caltrans Traffic Manual, ITE Trip Generation Handbook and ITE Parking Generation Handbook to solve traffic engineering problems.

Traffic Examination Reference Materials listed here for use in the open-book Traffic Engineering examination.

Throughout the course, practice exam problems and solutions covering all three main areas of traffic engineering (i.e., planning, operations, and design) are used. The course is taught by a team of expert practicing and licensed professional engineers. We will be using our online learning management system (LMS). The LMS allows ongoing online communication with the expert instructors throughout the training. A new addition is a series of online study sessions hosted by TechTransfer to be held on Wednesday evenings between the two online sessions for the week.

As there are no published versions of previous California Traffic Engineer Exams, this course does not represent actual problems that could appear in the actual exam. But rather, we have included more than 100 sample problems that represent the knowledge that is expected of any entry-level transportation engineer practicing Traffic Engineering in California.

Throughout the course, practice exam problems and solutions covering all four main areas of traffic engineering (i.e., planning, operations, studies & analysis, and design) are used. The course is taught by a team of expert practicing and licensed professional engineers. We will be using our online learning management system (LMS). The LMS allows ongoing online communication with the expert instructors throughout the training. A new addition is two online study sessions hosted by TechTransfer to be held on Wednesday evenings.
