Created in 2016, the ARTBA OLC serves as a key resource for transportation design and construction industry professionals seeking to build their skill set or to help prepare for the Safety Certification for Transportation Project Professionals (SCTPP) exam.

The courses are self-paced and accessible from any device that can access the internet, including smart phones, tablets and laptops. The digital content is available 24/7, which empowers participants to learn where they want to, review when they need to, and apply their new knowledge, skills, and abilities.

  • Environmental Conditions: Shows how to identify and address specific hazards based on working at night, in different climates, in different weather and near water (2-PDHs).
  • Hazard Control: Details how to detect the most common hazards found on transportation construction work sites, the threats each hazard poses to workers, and how to mitigate the risks by applying elimination, substitution, engineering controls, administrative controls and personal protective equipment (2-PDHs).
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Discusses the different types of PPE workers need for different jobs in a work zone, how to select and maintain PPE for transportation construction projects and how to establish a work zone culture where everyone always uses PPE (1-PDH).
