To register for a seminar, please visit http://www.ops.fhwa.dot.gov/freight/fpd/talking_freight/index.htm. You will need to register for each seminar individually by clicking on the "Enroll" link to the right of the seminar information.
Other seminars will be available for registration in the coming months.
The Talking Freight seminars are sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and are held via web conference. This means that you view the PowerPoint presentations over the Internet while listening to the presenters over the telephone. There is no cost involved and you do not have to leave your desk to participate. However, registration and attendance is limited to 100 people.
The seminars are held on the third Wednesday of each month, 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT/ 10:00 am - 11:30 am Pacific. The first hour of each seminar is dedicated to the presentations and the remaining 30 minutes are for audience question and answer.
The seminars use Adobe Connect and you must have the Adobe Flash Player installed on your computer. To test your machine or troubleshoot issues, go to: http://admin.breezecentral.com/common/help/en/support/meeting_test.htm. This may require the help of your IT support person if Flash needs to be installed.
Talking Freight seminars are eligible for 1.5 AICP Certification Maintenance Credits. In order to receive credit, you must attend the full seminar and login to the seminar with your full name or type your full name into the chat area during the seminar if you are in a room with a group of people. Visit the AICP web site for more information about AICP Certification Maintenance Credits.
