Don’t let the word Advanced in TTC Advanced Training & Certificate scare you away. We have many individuals shy away from this training simply because of the name. The key difference between the Intermediate and Advanced training is that in the Advanced training we have one additional section.
This section covers temporary barriers, end treatments and crash cushions. In addition the class is 20hrs vs the 16hrs in the TTC Intermediate. There are 10 extra questions on the exam. In my opinion the TTC Advanced Training is not really any harder then the TTC Intermediate course.
If you chose to go with the Advanced course you will have a higher level of certification which if your business owner can help you with RFPs. Plus if your looking for a job this looks better than just the Intermediate.
Next, lets look at what the FDOT TTC Administrator says about the criteria:
