'Introduction to Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS)' is a one-hour Web-based training (WBT) course offered by NHI, the authoritative source in transportation training.

The passage of the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) and the Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act ushered in a range of new provisions for the Federal-aid highway program related to transportation performance management and highway infrastructure. In response to associated rulemakings, State Departments of Transportation (DOTs), metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), FHWA Division Offices, and other stakeholders need information to learn about requirements, as well as noteworthy practices.

The goal of this course is to introduce learners to the HPMS program, its purpose and uses, and how HPMS relates to their jobs. It will help learners understand the history of HPMS, the HPMS data model, data that must be collected and reported, and submission requirements. The course will provide participants with the introductory knowledge needed to ensure their State DOT is complying with HPMS requirements.

This course was launched in August of 2019.

The course includes an end-of-course assessment.
