NOTES:COURSE RUNS FROM 1/2 DAY TO 3 DAYS DEPENDING UPON MODULES CHOSEN BY THE HOST. This course is available for all levels of learners: from basic to advanced knowledge in the subject area. The modular approach allows participants to benefit from a customized learning experience. Hosts may choose the basic course, the basic plus some intermediate or advanced lessons, or only more advanced topics--the choice is made to meet the needs of each agency with its own unique requirements! NOTE: The host must provide the classroom with computers, especially if an evaluation case study using P3-VALUE 2.0 is included in the host's selection of modules. Please contact NHI for further information. NOTE: Minimum for basic or intermediate training is 20 participants; minimum for advanced training is 5 participants. Potential hosts should discuss maximum participation numbers with the instructor.


The FHWA Center for Innovative Finance Support has developed a series of training modules to provide information and tools that help participants improve their understanding of how to evaluate potential P3 proposals.

An FHWA-sponsored instructor will present in-person training at your site. The training is tailored to address the needs of each requesting agency. The agenda and training modules presented will be determined through a discussion with FHWA staff and an evaluation of needs. Depending upon the options selected, the training duration runs from 1/2 day to 3 full instructional days. The intent is to fit the training content and schedule to best meet the needs of an individual agency.

Available modules include:


Module 1 Overview of P3s

Module 2 Successful P3 Practices


Module 3 P3 Risk Allocation

Module 4 P3 Project Financing

Module 5 P3 Evaluation Overview

Module 6 P3 Model Contracts

Module 7A P3 Preparing for a P3 Procurement

Module 7B Key P3 Procurement Structuring Themes

Module 7C Key P3 Procurement Steps

Module 8 Tolling and Pricing


Module 9A Financial Viability Assessment

Module 9B Financial Viability Computer Exercise

Module 10A P3 Value for Money Analysis

Module 10B P3 Value for Money Computer Exercise

Module 11A P3 Benefit-Cost Assessment

Module 11B P3 Benefit-Cost Assessment Exercise

Module 12A Risk Assessment

Module 12B Risk Assessment Exercise

Module 13 Comprehensive Exercise using your project

The training is a mix of presentations, class discussions, and hands-on computer training using the P3-VALUE 2.0 tool, an Excel-based set of spreadsheets that provide a better way to understand the development and evaluation of P3 bids from the public and private sector perspectives.


Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • better understand P3s and how to evaluate potential P3 proposals.
  • explain the process for developing, procuring and implementing P3s.


State, regional, and local transportation officials may host this course for invited attendees.
