Certified Trainer Programme

The PTV Certified Trainer programme trains and tests qualified industry professionals to deliver PTV certified courses, specifically in Vision Traffic Suite, the leading software for transportation planning and traffic engineering.

In a four-day train-the-trainer course divided into 16 x 90 minutes sessions you will learn how to use the Vision Traffic Suite for specific applications, especially focusing on teaching techniques. A one-day exam will also train you for all relevant applications.

The train-the-trainer classes will also offer you the opportunity to meet up with other Vision Traffic Suite users from around the world and to share ideas and experiences. You get a chance of interacting with many nationalities in a family-type atmosphere.

 Teaching license

Each certified trainer receives a stamp with his or her unique license number. As a certified trainer, you will act in the best interest of PTV AG.

Your license remains valid by annually refreshing your Vision Suite skills. If a certified trainer no longer fulfils the teaching requirements, he or she must return the license.

 Course Programme

The course places particular emphasis on specific topics concerning the software tools PTV Visum and PTV Vissim. It also explores basic learning theory and teaching methods. Practice-based examples and exercises will help familiarize yourself with the entire scope of a teacher's responsibilities.

The idea behind the Vision Traffic Suite software solutions builds the basis for understanding the program procedures. The course therefore places a major emphasis on this topic.

At the end of the course there will be an oral exam on selected topics. Exams are built from a random set of questions in the selected topics.

 Participation Requirements
