We are proud to announce the inaugural recipients of the Transportation Demand Management Certified Professional (TDM-CP) credential. Eighty individuals have proven their proficiency and broad knowledge by passing a rigorous three-hour exam on TDM industry standards, regulations, and best practices and have thus earned exclusive authorization to use the registered TDM-CP trademark.

This cohort is the inaugural group to be officially inducted into the TDM-CP registry from the first public exam window, joining the 26 beta testers who became certified earlier in the year. They are recognized for having succeeded despite many challenges presented by COVID-19. “While 2020 was a year worthy of so many negative adjectives, this group of leading TDM professionals achieved something extraordinarily positive that is really worth celebrating,” said Jessica Alba, chair of the ACT Certification Board of Trustees. “They displayed thought-leadership, fortitude, and resiliency in light of an international economic and public health emergency. On behalf of the entire Board of Trustees, congratulations on your signature credential!”
“As we look ahead as an industry and as an association, it’s quite an honor to recognize this group of TDM-CPs and what they represent,” said ACT Executive Director, David Straus. “Without a doubt, this group of ironclad TDM leaders will continue to play a vital role in addressing the transportation challenges and opportunities on our horizon.”
The TDM-CP credential program recognizes and ensures highly qualified individuals are available to meet the diverse needs of commuters, communities, and employers. For individuals looking to earn the certification, the next exam window will be held in the summer of 2021. For more information, visit: https://www.actweb.org/tdm-cp.
The pandemic-induced campus closure, which shifted thousands of UCLA employees into work from home arrangements, revealed some significant benefits, setting a course for telecommuting to continue down the road at the University.
