On June 5, 2006, the National Highway Institute (NHI) launched its much-anticipated improved Web site at www.nhi.fhwa.dot.gov. The updated NHI Web site features user-friendly navigation and an expanded e-commerce module that enables participants to enroll in and pay for courses.
Users can easily browse the NHI training catalog for course information and scheduled sessions. In addition to searching by keyword, title, and course number, users also can find more details by using advance search functions, including location, course level, and session dates. They also can learn whether a course is instructor-led or Web-based, and they can visit the new NHI store to purchase copies of course materials.
NHI also has improved Web conferencing and host requests by adding new functions. Users can complete online requests quickly and save contact information for future submissions.
The new resources section of the Web site houses essential tools for NHI course development and delivery. The section includes online presentations, style guides, templates, and ideas for the successful implementation of NHI courses. In addition, NHI instructors are able to complete online registration and become part of the NHI instructor community that facilitates the exchange of ideas and information, enabling NHI to continually improve in meeting participants' training needs.
In addition, the NHI Web site now provides enhanced customer service through new security features, including a login component. Users now register to access certain areas of the site by creating a user ID and password at https://www.nhi.fhwa.dot.gov/NHIUPLR/Login.aspx.
In addition to improving the Web site, NHI has added the following new courses:
