Is your agency in the process of enhancing its maintenance management capabilities?

Are you interested in learning more about developing effective performance measures for maintenance activities?

If so, join us for a blended training course that features both independent study material and facilitated Web conferences. Now you can learn all of the information provided in the 3.5-day instructor-led course (NHI-131107), without leaving your office!

This course is an introduction to the methods and practices used in an enhanced maintenance management system (MMS) to effectively maintain and operate a highway network. It provides participants with the principles and practices of using MMS effectively and illustrates efficient maintenance and operation of a highway network. Throughout the course, participants are provided with activities and assignments specific to using MMS.

The course materials rely heavily on the recently developed AASHTO Guidelines for Maintenance Management Systems, the Transportation Asset Management Guide, along with several other recent publications on the topic. The materials will be supplemented with examples from State and local highway agencies to illustrate the application of the principles in transportation agencies. This course has the same content and outcomes as FHWA-NHI-131107, Principles and Practices for Enhanced Maintenance Management Systems.


You will be expected to complete seven online lessons and three facilitated Web conferences. You must complete all 7 of the online lessons and participate in the Web conferences to obtain your certificate. By passing the online test at the end of the course, you can also receive Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for the course. All participants will need their own computer with internet connection and a telephone line to participate in the Web conference.


Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Compare and contrast a first generation MMS with an enhanced MMS
  • Describe the terms "outcome-based" and "performance-based" and how they pertain to an enhanced MMS
  • Describe the use of service levels to support the programming and budgeting activities incorporated into an MMS
  • Identify the types of systems that should be integrated with an MMS and provide several examples of the types of data that should interface between each system
  • List the potential benefits to be realized by fully integrating an enhanced MMS
  • Identify several steps that will advance an agency's current maintenance management practices now and in the future


The target audience for this course includes State and local maintenance engineers, maintenance supervisors, asset managers, and their industry counterparts. The course is specifically for individuals who are responsible for directing and managing maintenance operations and budgets, maintenance project and treatment selection, and/or the monitoring of system conditions.
