the transportation community.
NHI is now offering the National Traffic Incident Management Responder Web-based Training!
The National Traffic Incident Management Responder Training was created by responders for responders.
This course provides first responders a shared understanding of the requirements for safe,
quick clearance of traffic incident scenes; prompt, reliable and open communication; and motorist and
responder safeguards. First responders learn how to operate more efficiently and collectively.
This Web-based training equips responders with a common set of core competencies and assists them in
achieving the TIM National Unified Goal of strengthening TIM programs in the areas of: Responder safety;
Safe, quick clearance; and Prompt, reliable, and interoperable communications.
This training was developed through the second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP2).
Changes to Web-based Training
On January 1, 2015, the National Highway Institute began charging a small fee for select WBT courses. The number of days remaining to complete the course will be displayed on the My Training Web page after January 1. If you do not complete the training by July 12, 2015, then you will need to register for the course again and pay any course fees.
As a reminder, FHWA employees will not see any cost changes. Prerequisite courses and those supported by other organizations such as the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council and other program offices are not affected.
How much will WBTs cost?
To see how much a specific WBT will cost in 2015, search for the course on the NHI Web site and select the name
of the course to view the course details. The course's 2014 and 2015 prices appear at the top of the course description page. Courses
are priced at $0.00, $25.00 or $50.00 in 2015.
What if a course shows $0.00 per participant for its 2015 price?
A $0.00 2015 price indicates that there is no cost to you. The notes field indicates why there is no cost.
Will I have to pay to print my Certificate of Completion?
Certificates of Completion for successfully completed trainings will continue to be available at no cost on the My Training page on the NHI Web site.
