The premier organization for TDM professionals

Recertification

Once you pass the TDM-CP exam, you are expected to earn a minimum of 60 credits per two-year period (30 credits in Industry Leadership and 30 credits in Professional Development).

For information on recertification, please see the TDM-CP Candidate Handbook or look at the video below.

All ACT sponsored webinars held since the date you received certification are eligible for credit as detailed in the Handbook.  As well, the virtual Emerging Mobility Summit in March 2020, the virtual International Conference in July 2020, the virtual TDM Forum in November 2020, and the virtual Future of Commuting Summit in April 2021, all qualify for credit in accordance with the points allowed in the Handbook.  In addition, participation in any previous ImpACT! Leadership program is eligible for recertification.

Please note: information under the CE column (in your "Profile" page "Activities" column) is not accurately reflecting what is or isn't eligible for recertification credit.

Virtual discussions and events such as chapter sponsored webinars and happy hours are not eligible unless approved by the CBOT.

You are required to track and provide documentation for points you submit.  It is recommended that monitor your recertification activities and report them in your Prolydian account on an ongoing basis to ensure you receive recertification.

You can view information on webinars and conferences that you have registered for by logging in to your profile on the ACT website. Within your profile, click on the Activities tab.

 

 

Recertification credits are divided into two categories: Industry Leadership and Professional Development.  Credits for time based items (leadership positions, committee membership, etc) are awarded only for the months of time served during your two-year certification period.
