MSA is proud to announce that Eric Frailing, a Transportation project engineer for the firm, recently became certified as a Professional Traffic Operations Engineer (PTOE), as sponsored by the Transportation Professional Certification Board, Inc.
Attaining PTOE certification demonstrates a command of the knowledge, skills and abilities required for the specialized application of traffic operations engineering. The certification requires that the holder first be a licensed Professional Engineer (PE) and represents one of the highest levels of licensing available in the Traffic Engineering field. As of March, 2018, there were a total of 3,273 certified traffic engineering professionals.
“Receiving PTOE certification is a tremendous achievement,” commented Mike Statz, chief operating officer and transportation program manager at MSA. “This not only demonstrates Eric’s commitment to professional development and the refining of his skill set, but also reflects a dedication to the highest standard of quality in his work and the ability to impart that quality towards the benefit our projects and clients.”
Eric joined MSA in 2016 with experience in conventional and roundabout intersection design, intersection control evaluations, safety and operational analysis, microsimulation modeling, project visualization, policy writing and review. He is a licensed Professional Engineer (PE) in Minnesota and Wisconsin and is also a certified WisDOT SE Region TIA Preparer. Mr. Frailing received his bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and is a member of the Institute of Transportation Engineers.
“Having this certification isn’t about adding a few extra letters behind our name,” said Eric. “Instead, it demonstrates to existing and potential clients our commitment to maintaining the highest standards in our profession, and in turn, our commitment to delivering the highest-quality projects for them.”
