'Transportation Performance Management for Bridges' is a one-day Instructor-led Training course offered by NHI, the authoritative source in transportation training.

Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) established, and Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) continued, new requirements for reporting on national performance measures and making progress toward targets in several national goal areas, including the condition of the bridges on the National Highway System (NHS). This course helps agencies apply Transportation Performance Management (TPM) concepts to implement the bridge-related TPM requirements.

The course begins with an overview of key performance management concepts. It then reviews performance measures defined for assessing and reporting bridge performance. Finally, the course details how to set and report bridge performance targets and assess performance against agency targets.

The main goals of the course are to provide agency staff with the skills and abilities to use the national bridge performance management measures to assess bridge condition, establish bridge performance targets, report bridge performance, and assess progress toward achieving bridge performance targets in compliance with the TPM requirements in 23 CFR 490.

The course is organized in the following lessons:

+ TPM Overview

+ Bridge Performance Management and Related Rules

+ Bridge Performance Data

+ Setting Bridge Performance Targets

+ Reporting, Accountability, and Transparency

The course includes a written assessment. The course was launched in May 2018.
