'Transportation Performance Management (TPM) for Safety - Essentials' is a one-day Instructor-led Training course offered by NHI.

This course explains the safety performance measures and noteworthy practices necessary for States to comply with the MAP-21 and FAST Act requirements. The course recommends an evidence-based and data-driven methodology for setting safety targets and provides participants with an understanding of the safety data needed to meet the safety TPM requirements. The course helps improve the ability of States to coordinate target setting between the State Departments of Transportation (State DOTs) and the State Highway Safety Office (SHSO), as well as between the State DOT and the State's Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs).

This Instructor-led Training course provides hands-on exercises with reviewing crash data trends and establishing safety targets based on planned safety programs, external factors, and countermeasure deployment. The course also includes a written assessment.

The course is organized into the following lessons:

+ Introduction

+ Safety Performance Management and Performance-Based Planning

+ Safety Performance Measures and Related Data

+ Performance-Based Safety Target Setting

+ Resource Allocation in Safety Performance Management

+ Safety Performance Reporting, Accountability, and Transparency

This course was condensed from a two-day version (#138006) in August of 2018.
