Connected Vehicle Professional I - Function, Protocols and Architecture will focus on connected vehicle application concepts and vision, performance functions, communication protocols, hardware architecture components and software architecture methodologies within the connected vehicle ecosystems. To ensure a globally informed awareness, learners will be presented with in-depth wide ranging course materials, suggested domestic and internationally source reading resources, and tested on various key areas of instruction.

The Connected Vehicle Professional I - Function, Protocols and Architecture is part of the Connected Vehicle Professional ™(CVP) Credentialing Program. This is a comprehensive education and certification curriculum collaboratively launched between SAE International, Connected Vehicle Trade Association (CVTA) and Mobile Comply.

The CVP Credentialing Program helps professionals to build a valuable skill set and increases professional credibility in the Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) Community. The CVP is a vendor-neutral credentialing program that signifies that an individual has the requisite foundational understanding necessary to perform tasks involving connected vehicle and intelligent transportation best practices, in-vehicle safety, infrastructure, communication protocols, security and more.

Learners who successfully complete the end-of-course learning assessment are awarded the SAE International/Connected Vehicle Trade Association Certificate of Competency.
