'Getting Started on Effective TPM for Pavements' is a one-hour web-based training 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. State Departments of Transportation (DOTs), metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), FHWA Division Offices, and other stakeholders need information about new requirements, as well as noteworthy practices.

This WBT course provides an effective, time-efficient, and accessible format for practitioners in State DOTs, MPOs, FHWA, and other groups. This format provides a richer context for information than static materials through the use of knowledge checks and other interactive features.

The goal of this course is to provide individuals with a foundational knowledge of the new legislation and regulatory requirements related to pavement condition performance. This foundation will give participants the tools and skills needed to begin helping their DOT and/or MPO meet the new requirements.

The course is organized into the following lessons:

+ Welcome and Overview

+ Performance Measures

+ Data

+ Calculating the Measure

+ Target Setting

+ Minimum Condition Requirements

+ Reporting

+ Coordination and Collaboration

+ Timeline

This course was launched in February 2019.
