CTAA offers a course to prepare for the CTPA exam. It's a two-day course that touches on each of the exam topics and is taught on-site. We don't offer the course at a CTAA training location but rather arrange for our trainer to come to wherever the interest is. Up to 30 people can attend a class, so get in touch with your state's RTAP coordinator and your state transit association to express your interest.
