The Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) Project Identification Course provides participants with the necessary background and tools needed to identify projects for the HSIP. Background knowledge critical to understanding project identification includes
data analysis concepts such as regression-to-the-mean. Tools essential to the network screening process includes approaches that support systemic safety improvements and those aimed at identifying particular sites with potential for safety improvement. The
course will allow participants to choose between different network screening methods by distinguishing between the data needs, strengths and weaknesses of the different approaches; identify and evaluate different countermeasures; prioritize projects based
on measures of economic effectiveness; and identify potential funding sources and strategies.
You will be expected to complete ten online lessons and two facilitated Web conferences. It is recommended that you complete the modules in sequential order. You must complete all ten online lessons and participate in the two Web conferences to obtain your
certificate. By passing the online test at the end of the course, you can also receive Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for the course. All participants will need their own computer with internet connection and a telephone line to participate in the Web conferences.
