    This five-session online training course is intended to help transportation engineers prepare for the California Traffic Engineering License Exam to become Professional Engineers (PE). The course is being expanded to include a new set of 16 problems with fully developed solutions to give examinees more opportunity to hone in their test-taking skills. It covers over 50 topics identified on the Examination Outline for Traffic Engineering Licensing on the California Board of 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. New for this year, each student receives a copy of the best-selling 15th Edition of Fundamentals of Traffic Engineering. Also new for this year is the use of an online learning management system that will allow ongoing online communication with the expert instructors throughout the five weeks of online training. Students will be given problem sets to work on in between online training sessions, which can be submitted online via the learning management system.
