'Making the Connection between Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) Data Items and TPM' is a ninety-minute 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. State Departments of Transportation (DOTs), metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), FHWA Division Offices, and other stakeholders are seeking information about requirements, as well as noteworthy practices.

This 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 introduce you to HPMS as it relates to TPM, as well as data items used to meet TPM requirements. The course will help you understand how HPMS supports TPM performance measures, as well as how TPM has affected HPMS requirements. The course will also help you understand reporting requirements for each of the data items included in the course. This knowledge will help you ensure the HPMS workflows and processes at your State DOTs align with the HPMS requirements and timeline. Additionally, you will gain the knowledge and skills needed to collect, process, and report TPM-related data in an HPMS-compliant manner.

The course is organized into the following lessons:

=Welcome and Overview

=Sections Data Set

=Inventory Data Items

=Pavement Data Items

=Special Networks Data Items

=Travel Time Data Items

=Overview of Reporting Requirements

=Overview of Timeline Requirements

This course was launched in November of 2019.

The course includes an end-of-course assessment.
