NHI 2001 Catalog Available on CD-ROM
The National Highway Institute Training Resources Catalog 2001 is available in both book and CD-ROM formats. This publication includes not only courses offered by the National Highway Institute, but also surface transportation training programs provided by other non-profit organizations. One change in this year's catalog is a new course numbering system. An additional digit has been inserted in each course number, which allows more flexibility in course numbering and also gives more numbers to choose from in each category. As an example, Urban Drainage Design, course 13027 is now course 135027. To receive a copy of the CD-ROM or the book contact Conni Morse at email@example.com
