The transportation profession incorporates people with diverse backgrounds and education, and this enriches our community, yet many don’t have a clear way forward for professional development and recognition of who they are or what they do. The industry should be able to certify, encourage, build capability and mana for people right across the spectrum of expertise yet the current pathways for professional recognition are not supportive and inclusive of non-traditional engineers and planners.
This poster presentation gives an overview of findings from a survey of NZ transport practitioners, a comparison of the experiences of New Zealand with other countries where certification is offered for transport professionals, and suggest some options and ways forward for our industry here.
Post-conference, the peer-reviewed paper and the poster will be available for download.
