The Transit Technician Education Program (TTEP) encompasses three distinct avenues for transit technicians to acquire the skills needed in today’s modern maintenance organization.

  1. The FTMC Certified Transit Technician (CTT) curriculum consists of three technical tracks, defined as Technician I, II, and III. The tracks include 620 hours, 620 hours, and 680 hours of instruction respectively. Each track contains five modules consisting of classroom and hands-on training related to specific technical areas. A Post-Secondary Adult Vocational (PSAV) certificate will be issued upon completion of the three tracks.

  2. The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree program consists of 60 credit hours of instruction. Upon successfully completing the CTT program and obtaining a PSAV certificate, qualified transit technicians may apply to Hillsborough Community College (HCC) and request articulation of the certificate. When approved, 33 credit hours will be granted toward fulfillment of the requirements for the AAS degree.

  3. The Transit Manager Certificate Program (TMCP), sponsored by the Florida Department of Transportation and offered through the University of South Florida’s (USF) University College prepares Florida’s public transportation managers for the challenges they face. Participants in this professional development certificate program experience skill and leadership building sessions and have the opportunity to expand their network of transit colleagues. The TMCP provides the tools and resources necessary for solving today’s public transportation challenges.
