The new PTDI Certification Profile is your training organization's one stop shop for documenting how your course meets PTDI's Entry Level Driver Training Certification Standards. It streamlines the certification process making the requirements easier to understand and offers a simple system to help you demonstrate your training program.
The Certification Commission evaluates your course based on the profile you submit.
Using the profile you can save course information in one consolidated place. Update at any time. You are required to update and submit your profile changes at least once a year during your renewal period. This online, web-based platform is a permanent, ongoing record of your course.

How It 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.
