Easterseals Project Action Consulting has entered into a formal agreement with the Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) to provide the Travel Trainer Certification.  Easterseals Project Action Consulting develops and monitors the training and practicum for the certification with close review and approval provided by CUTR.  CUTR provides and issues the actual certification.

You will have 2 years from the date you register for the program to complete the process.

Within 2 years of of receiving your certification and every two year period you wish to retain your certification after that, you must obtain 15 credit hours of acceptable training courses on the certification topic.

Anyone that has completed the Introduction to Travel Training workshop delivered by Easterseals Project Action Consulting within the 2 years prior to his/her registration for the ctti program, can have those hours credited toward the travel training certification.  To make this request, email espaconsulting@easterseals.com with “Credits for Past Intro to Travel Training Course” in the subject line.  You have to have completed your registration for the travel training certification program prior to making this request.

Other courses provided by ESPA Consulting and/or other organization may count toward certification credits.  Please see the How to Submit Organization & Event Experience for Credits page for more information and instructions to request these credits.

Once you have received your travel training certification certificate from CUTR, you may list the ctti (Certified Travel Training Instructor) credentials following your name.
