TRAINING LEVEL: Basic

NOTES:The Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) Implementation Course provides strategies and examples of SHSP implementation processes. It draws from the SHSP Implementation Process Model (IPM) and other sources to assist safety practitioners in managing SHSP implementation. The course recognizes the highly variable nature from one jurisdiction to another, both within and among the states which implement their SHSP according to available opportunities and resources. While this course is primarily based on ideal practice, each State implements their SHSP according to the available opportunities and resources. Models, such as the SHSP IPM, are representations of ideal processes, and all parts of the model may not work or be necessary for all States. Regardless, this course includes take-aways for everyone. Each course participant should use the pieces that work best for their State.

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This training course provides strategies and examples of Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) implementation processes that will help safety partners manage their state's SHSPs. The intended audience for the SHSP Implementation Course encompasses a wide range of safety stakeholders involved in SHSP management and implementation efforts at all levels (e.g., local, regional, state, and Federal) including: engineers (e.g., safety, traffic, design, operations, maintenance, and management); transportation planners; safety practitioners; law enforcement officers and managers; emergency responders; and nonprofit and private sector partners.

The course recognizes States implement their SHSP according to available opportunities and resources. Models, such as the SHSP Implementation Process Model (IPM) presented in this course, are representations of ideal processes, and all parts of the model may not work or be necessary for all States. The model presents the ideal framework to help states assess, compare, and adjust their own SHSP implementation efforts.

Responsibilities:

You will be expected to complete three online lessons and three facilitated Web conferences. It is recommended that Modules 1 and 2 be completed prior to any other modules. Module 6 can be taken at anytime following the first two, but should be completed prior to taking Modules 7 and 8. You must complete all eight 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.

NHI hosts SHSP Implementation and four other Web-based Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP)-related training courses HSIP Overview, SHSP Development, HSIP Project Identification, and HSIP Project Evaluation.

TARGET AUDIENCE:

The target audience for this course encompasses the wide range of safety stakeholders involved in SHSP management and implementation efforts at all levels (e.g., local, regional, state, and Federal) including: engineers (e.g., safety, traffic, design, operations, maintenance, and management); transportation planners; safety practitioners; highway safety office personnel; law enforcement executives and officers; EMS office personnel and emergency responders; motor carrier safety office personnel; and nonprofit and private sector partners; others involved in transportation safety; and Federal representatives (FHWA, NHTSA, FMCSA, and FTA).
