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.

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.

This course is intended as a review course for transportation engineers who already have the requisite education and professional experience to qualify to take the TE licensure exam in California. We assume all examinees have the appropriate knowledge of Traffic Engineering and are familiar with all the technical references required by the Board. This course will not teach the use of these references, rather it is only a review of how to apply the reference materials in solving the TE exam problems efficiently. This course is not designed to teach basic understanding of Traffic Engineering, which should be learned either in school or at work as part of one's professional experience in Traffic Engineering.

Who Should Attend

Transportation engineers preparing for the California Traffic Engineer (TE) licensure exam. Examinees are assumed to have the requisite education and professional experience to qualify to take the California Traffic Engineer Exam.

This online class will have a 90-minute introductory session that will include all of the class instructors. The following 10 sessions will all be 2.5 hours on consecutive Mondays & Wednesdays. The final session will be a final question-and-answer session for 90-minutes, when students can ask their questions from all of the instructors and collaborate on final exam test-taking procedures.

Examinees who may have deficiencies in any of the subjects covered in the CA Traffic Engineer Exam test plan may consider taking one or more of our training courses in our Engineering section.
