TCP Fact Sheet

Travel Certificate Program

The Travel Certificate Program (TCP) is a knowledge, skill and assessment-based professional development program to validate the capabilities of personnel who manage travel for the Department of Defense.  This program is designed to be a comprehensive, travel manager program that assists in standardization of knowledge and skills across the Department. 

The TCP is being implemented in a phased approach.  The first phase established the "universal" Defense Travel Administrator (DTA) certificate and the second phase implemented an Authorizing Official (AO) certificate.  Subsequent phases will focus on establishing certificates for other travel manager roles such as, Finance DTA, Debt Management Monitor, and Agency Program Coordinator, as well as, further evaluate the need for a Travel instructor and Advanced Travel Management certificates.

Certificate administration will be managed within Travel Explorer (TraX).  In the TraX Training Section, a Travel Certificate
tab will be visible if a certificate is offered for the TraX user's designated role.
