To become a CTP, you must pass a two-part examination. Part One consists of short-answer essay questions focusing on the core areas of fleet/transportation management. You will have two and a half hours to complete this part of the examination. In the second part of the CTP Examination, you will be given a case study and asked to submit a written analysis of the problem and your recommendations for solving the problem. You will be given two hours to complete this portion of the examination.
To receive the CTP designation, you must successfully pass both parts of the CTP Examination. Both parts of the examination are weighed equally.
In the event that you do not pass the case study analysis portion of the CTP Examination, you may repeat this part, but only if you successfully pass the short-answer essay examination.
