Instructing NHI Courses

NHI relies on quality instructors to deliver engaging training that provides transportation professionals with the skills and knowledge to excel at their jobs. Instructors who work with NHI are experts in their fields and mentors in the classroom. They are Federal employees and contractors from across the country.

Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) employees interested in becoming an NHI certified instructor can complete a nomination form and return it (with a copy of his/her resume) to You must be approved for technical competency and subject matter expertise.

The FHWA Office of Acquisition and Grants Management also awards contracts to outside vendors to support the National Highway Institute in the development, update, and delivery of instructor-led and/or distance learning courses. Questions about supporting NHI under these existing contracts should be directed to one or more of these vendors currently under contract.

NHI Instructor Certification

NHI offers a certification program to provide, oversee, and continuously improve the quality of its instructors' skills and instructional techniques: the NHI Instructor Certification Program. Instructors selected to deliver NHI training have one year to complete the program.

Participants receive a Certificate of Accomplishment upon successful completion of the program, which provides evidence that each instructor has met NHI's rigorous standards.

First Time NHI Instructor Registration

NHI instructors assigned to teach an ILT and/or facilitate a WCT course must first receive an Instructor ID. If you have been assigned to teach a course, but do not have an Instructor ID, please contact the NHI Instructor Liaison at (703) 235-0952 or email

Instructor registration helps us:

  • Better track customer satisfaction for continuous process improvement
  • Recognize excellence in NHI's instructor community
  • Work with instructors developing expertise in delivering NHI training
  • Support instructors by providing opportunities for professional development

If you were assigned an NHI Instructor ID and misplaced it or forgot it, contact the NHI Instructor Liaison.
