COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This course defines transportation conformity and is designed for individuals that are new to transportation conformity, with little to no experience with the Transportation Conformity Rule.

This introductory transportation conformity course will answer questions related to the "what" of transportation conformity. What is transportation conformity? What activities are covered by conformity? What are the major requirements?

This course does not address how transportation conformity regulations are met. That topic is an advanced subject matter area and out of scope for an introductory transportation conformity course.

This is the fourth in a future series of air quality Web-based trainings (WBTs):

142068: Clear Air Act Overview

142069: SIP and TCM Requirements and Policies

142070: SIP Development Process

142071: Transportation Conformity

OUTCOMES:

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

  • Relate transportation conformity to Transportation Improvement Programs (TIPs) and transportation plans
  • Define transportation conformity
  • Explain the transportation activities that are subject to conformity in a given timeframe
  • Describe transportation conformity requirements for different activities
  • Explain stakeholder responsibilities related to transportation conformity

TARGET AUDIENCE:

The target audience for the Air Quality Series is transportation and air quality planners and engineers from State and local departments of transportation (DOT), metropolitan planning organizations (MPO), transit agencies, Federal agencies (Federal Highway Administration, Federal Transit Administration, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Department of Energy, etc.), and State and local environmental agencies. Others include transportation and environmental consultants, public officials and staff members, community and interest groups, as well as other stakeholders in the planning process.
