New NHI Courses Available in 2002

Road Safety Audits and Road Safety Audit Reviews (Course #380069) — Participants in this course will learn how to improve transportation safety by learning how to apply road safety audits (RSA) and road safety audit reviews (RSAR) to future or existing roadways, which improve safety and keep the public informed about efforts to reduce the number of crashes.

Rural ITS Toolbox (Course #137007) — This course describes and documents many intelligent transportation systems (ITS) practices and techniques that have been successfully applied to rural transportation problems. The Rural ITS Toolbox training will be helpful to identify ITS solutions that can have a low-cost/high-return impact on rural transportation.

NHI Training Partnerships

  • To maximize resources and minimize duplication, NHI and the National Transit Institute (NTI) collaborated on course development and delivery in the areas of planning and environment. A highlight of 2001 was the completion of the first NHI/NTI joint course: Introduction to Metropolitan Transportation Planning. This effort was coordinated by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), and the Association of Metropolitan Planning Organizations (AMPO), as well as stakeholders and customers.
  • NHI is working with FHWA headquarters, state departments of transportation (DOTs), and industry partners in the recently formed Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council (TCCC), which prioritizes and coordinates training for the transportation industry. NHI is developing the TCCC Web site, as well as courses in construction workmanship, geotechnical inspector training, and quality assurance.
  • NHI and the FHWA Office of Real Estate Services, in cooperation with the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and the International Right-of-Way Association (IRWA), have completed an analysis that identifies training needs and obstacles to training — with new course development and improved marketing of NHI courses to the real estate community on the way.
