Who is CTPP Training aimed at?
CTPP Training is chiefly aimed at data users at MPOs and
States. It is appropriate for consultants and students as well.
This training is designed for anyone who is required to work on
long range planning, congestion management, travel forecast,
air quality analysis.
CTPP training sessions are typically one and half days of
hands-on work in a computer based setting. Participants will
engage in discussion, practice analytical skills through exercises,
learn to navigate the CTPP software, and leave with a better
understanding of what transportation data are available and
what are the avoidable pitfalls to using them.

* In-depth, ongoing discussion optimally resulting in better,
smarter data users

agencies collect and produce these data? How accurate,
current, reliable are they?

Files-What's out there, how is it found, how is it acquired?

they will use again and again. The training is interesting,
informative, vital and entertaining.
