Road Safety Professional Certifications

Every year throughout the United States and Canada, more than 40,000 lives are lost due to road related fatalities. The Road Safety Professional (RSP) certifications 1 and 2 distinguish those individuals who have dedicated their careers to the continued improvement of our roadways and their safety features for all road users. These certifications are supported and sponsored by the Transportation Professional Certification Board (TPCB) in collaboration with other transportation and safety related organizations in the United States and Canada since 2018 to recognize road safety as a profession, establish a standardized level of practice and knowledge, and continue educational advocacy for the transportation public.
