Asset Management Asset Management

Financial Planning for Transportation Asset Management (TAM) (Instructor-led Training): This 1.5 day course helps participants build a TAM financial plan outline that will help them better manage assets, leverage funding, and communicate the relationship between funding and performance of transportation assets to stakeholders.

Risk Management (Instructor-led Training): This 2-day class exposes participants to the principles, tools, and techniques used to identify, prioritize, respond to, and monitor risk. They learn to apply these risk management tools and techniques at any level of an organization (enterprise, program, project, or activity).

Introduction to Transportation Asset Management with Workshop (Instructor-led Training): This course introduces participants to the application of asset management principles in real life situations through a series of workshops. Covers asset management principles, performance measures, long-term financial planning, risk assessment, and implementation.

Developing a Transportation Asset Management Plan (Instructor-led Training): A blend of online and classroom training, this course introduces the role of the Transportation Asset Management Plan (TAMP) as a planning, communication, and accountability tool.

Business Business, Public Admin, and Quality

Conducting Effective Program Reviews (Instructor-led Training): Recently updated to provide a more focused step-based approach to the program review process, this two-day workshop provides instruction, consultation, and hands-on assistance in the methodology and tools for conducting program reviews that get results.

Environment Environment

Fundamentals of Environmental Justice (Web-based Training): This course presents participants with a variety of strategies and resources for considering environmental justice throughout the transportation decision-making process.

Geotechnical Geotechnical

Soil Nail Walls (Instructor-led Training): This training teaches civil engineers to utilize design tools and construction methods for the safe and cost effective design of soil nail walls.

Ground Modification Methods (Full Version) (Instructor-led Training): This 4-day training provides participants the knowledge and ability to effectively implement the latest ground modification methods and procedures used in connection with transportation-related construction. This course is also offered as two separate abridged courses: Ground Modification Methods (Abridged Version 1: Lightweight Fills, Deep Compaction, Soil Mixing, and Grouting) and Ground Modification Methods (Abridged Version 2: Vertical Drains, Aggregate Columns, Column Supported Embankments, Pavement Support Stabilization, and Reinforced Soil Structures).

Highway Safety Highway Safety

Speed Management (Instructor-led Training): In this transportation training, participants learn lifesaving countermeasures that shape speed management programs and how these can help communities combat speeding-related injuries and deaths.

Hydraulics Hydraulics

Hydraulic Toolbox (Web-based Training): This course serves as an introduction to most of the calculators in FHWA's Hydraulic Toolbox, through a combination of discussion, graphics, examples, and workshop problems.

SRH-2D Model Data files, Diagnostics & Verifying 2D Model Results (Web-conference Training): This course is designed for hydraulics personnel who have responsibility for, or desire to work with, the hydraulic analysis and design of highway river crossings.

Model Terrain Development with Various Data Sources (Web-conference Training): This course teaches participants to process and effectively use LiDAR and other elevation format types in defining geometry for 2D hydraulic models.

Structures Structures

Safety Inspection of In-Service Bridges for Professional Engineers (Instructor-led Training): This new version of NHI's highly acclaimed bridge inspection course meets the NBIS requirement for comprehensive bridge inspection training and has been streamlined to better suit experienced professional engineers, while retaining strong emphasis on bridge inspection, documentation, and coding requirements.

Fundamentals of Bridge Maintenance (Web-based Training): Teaches the participant the fundamental aspects of an effective bridge maintenance program.

Bridge Maintenance (Instructor-led Training): Replacing the original Bridge Maintenance course (course number 134029), this course will teach participants common deficiencies that occur in bridges, common defects in bridge elements, preventive maintenance techniques, and protective systems intended to prevent deterioration and deficiencies in bridges.

Design and Evaluation of Bridges for Fatigue and Fracture (Instructor-led Training): This two-day training course presents relevant issues related to fatigue and fracture in steel bridges, including analysis, design, evaluation, repair, and retrofit. It is based on the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications, Eighth Edition, as well as the AASHTO Manual for Bridge Evaluation, Second Edition, with Interim Revisions through 2016.

Tunnel Safety Inspection Refresher Prerequisite (Web-based Training): This training introduces participants to basic concepts regarding tunnel inspection and safety. It is required prior to taking NHI's 130125 Tunnel Safety Inspection Refresher course.

Tunnel Safety Inspection Refresher (Instructor-led Training): This highly interactive 2.5-day ILT builds upon prior knowledge of bridge and tunnel inspection through case studies. This course covers the entire breadth of knowledge necessary to manage or execute a successful tunnel inspection.

Strut-and-Tie Modeling (STM) for Concrete Structures (Instructor-led Training): This 1.5-day training course serves as a significant step in providing the knowledge transfer necessary for STM to be used more frequently and more effectively.

Transportation Performance Management Transportation Performance Management

Transportation Performance Management (TPM) for Pavements (Instructor-led Training): This one-day ILT course is intended to review concepts in TPM, identify specific measures used for characterizing pavement conditions, and provide methods for analyzing and recommending pavement condition targets and approaches for monitoring pavement networks.

The Role of Data in Transportation Performance Management (Instructor-led Training): This course enables participants to manage, analyze, integrate, and use data from diverse sources to support an effective agency TPM function.
