Certification Profile

How The Profile Works

Each training organization that has a certified course will have a Certification Profile.  Your profile is an ongoing record of your course.  You create, save and update your profile.  All sections are required but they don't have to be completed in order.

There are nine (9) sections to the profile. 

After you complete the initial setup, you will NOT need to create a new profile each year.  Instead, you will update and submit changes.

Be sure to fully complete each section, be detail oriented and answer all questions thoroughly.  The commission evaluates your course based on the profile you submit. 

Be sure to keep complete records at your organization.

Each section of your Certification Profile must be sent to PTDI once a year during your renewal period. Changes can be made at any time. Submitting your updates is only required annually.  If you have significant changes, you should submit an updated profile to PTDI when they occur.

Certification Resources

PTDI offers Certification Resources to help you identify what you need to complete the profile.  Besides a roadmap explaining the Certification Profile, the Certification Resources include documents and forms required for proper record keeping and operations. 

==> Purchase the Certification Resources in our store.

The Certification Resources are included in PTDI's Complete CDL-A Training Package or can be purchased separately.

All schools with certified courses have access to resources, including the most current documents and forms, through their PTDI account.  Certified courses can access the secured content here.

How to Access the Profile

The Certification profile and your individual PTDI account are separate systems with different logons. 

(1) The Certification Profile is your training organization's account to upload information about your program/course.  There is a single school username and password for this system that gives you access to all nine sections of the Profile.  A school receives logon credentials after a certification application has been received.  Current applicants and existing certified schools can contact PTDI if they need their Profile credentials.

(2) The PTDI Account is your personal PTDI web site account for accessing standards, certification resources (the explanation of the Profile), forms, templates and other materials.  Those who have a certified program, apply for certification or purchase the standards will receive a logon and password to access their products.  Current applicants and existing certified schools always have access to the latest versions and may contact PTDI if they need their logon credentials.
