About Certification and Accreditation

About Certification and Accreditation

The terms “certification” and “accreditation” are sometimes used interchangeably, however, they are not the same.

Certification is a credential that is used for verifying that personnel have adequate knowledge, skills, and abilities to practice certain disciplines or qualify for specific jobs or tasks. When you pass the Safety Certified Transportation Project Professional (SCTPP) exam, you become a certified professional. This means you have demonstrated your knowledge of the basic competencies to work safely on a transportation construction project.

Accreditation is used to verify that organizations have an appropriate quality management system and can define and fairly assess the competencies pertaining to their certification program. ARTBA has demonstrated that our exam has been developed following strict third-party protocols for our industry by our top subject matter experts and as a result, earned accreditation from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) National Accreditation Board (ANAB). ANAB is a private, not-for-profit organization that provides accreditation services to public and private-sector organizations. ANAB is the largest accreditation body in North America and provides services in more than 75 countries.
