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.
