Abstract
The objective of this proposal is to design a detailed curricula framework for an ITS and Connected Vehicle industry-recognized credential program. Titled Transportation Tech, the framework will serve as a basis for developing 3 levels of online credential training in each industry. The education and professional development of technicians in the ITS field is pivotal to the future of our nation’s infrastructure. The Transportation Tech credential program serves as a compliment to benefit any career path or academic program as well as provide valuable high quality professional development. Course content features instructional how-to-videos, 3-D simulations, “Prove It” exercises using virtual reality, and weekly live online office hours with industry experts. Additional benefits for Transportation Tech students include 1) lifetime access to the content (updated annually to meet industry standards), 2) online supplier and vendor resource libraries, and 3) check-lists and quick reference guides. The Transportation Tech credential program is innovative, student centered, and based upon the skills required to create the “connected society.”.
