Instructor Development Course (Web-conference Training): This new course combines
live sessions with self-paced, Web-based training in a blended-learning format. This Instructor Development Course (IDC) teaches instructors who have
taken the Instructor-led version of the IDC to effectively deliver interactive training using NHI software. Read more.
Freight and Transportation Logistics
Fundamentals of Freight Data Workshop (Instructor-led Training): This new workshop will provide participants with a broad knowledge of freight data sources,
as well as the ability to utilize freight data for transportation planning program or project development, and policy analysis.
Introducing Human Factors in Roadway Design and Operations (Instructor-led Training): Addressing human factors in roadway planning and design can help make
roadways safer and reduce the likelihood of these factors contributing to an injury or fatality. To help engineers, planners, and other transportation
professionals increase roadway safety, NHI created this new course as a thorough introduction to the Human Factor Guidelines (HFG)
for Road Systems.
One-Dimensional Modeling of River Encroachments with HEC-RAS (Instructor-led Training): This updated course focuses on the use and application of Hydrologic Engineering Center-River
Analysis System (HEC-RAS) software. HEC-RAS solves the conservation of energy equation for one-dimensional steady flow analysis to determine water surface elevations for a given
discharge. This course is updated to present modeling principles and techniques using the latest software version of HEC-RAS.
Highway Hydrology: Basic Concepts and Methods Web-Based (Web-based Training): This new course provides training on basic hydrologic concepts that will enable participants
to determine peak flow for transportation hydraulic structures. For engineers, the course teaches basic hydrologic concepts as a review before taking more advanced hydraulic
courses. For non-engineers the course enables learners to better understand hydrologic concepts used by engineers.
Culvert Hydraulic Analysis and Design Program (HY-8) (Web-based Training): This new course provides training on the use of the FHWA's HY-8 computer program to
complete culvert analysis and design calculations commonly performed by Civil Engineers and others involved in roadway design.
Pavements and Materials
Hot In-place Recycling (Web-based Training): This is a new course from NHI. Using recycled materials can help highway agencies improve their
bottom lines - and protect the environment by conserving natural resources and energy. This training was developed by the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council (TCCC)
in partnership with AASHTO and NHI. The Hot in-place recycling (HIR) techniques described in this training provide owner agencies with cost-effective and sustainable methods
to repair their aging pavements. Read more.
Full Depth Reclamation (FDR) (Web-based Training): This new course is useful for individuals seeking awareness or basic understanding of Full Depth Reclamation (FDR). FDR is a
rehabilitation technique in which the full thickness of the asphalt pavement and a predetermined portion of the underlying materials is uniformly pulverized and blended to
provide an upgraded, homogeneous material.
Concrete Pavement Preservation Series (Includes NHI-131126A-K) (Web-based Training): This updated series presents current guidelines and recommendations for the design,
construction, and selection of cost-effective concrete pavement preservation strategies. It concentrates primarily on strategies and methods
that are applicable at the project level.
Introduction to FRP Materials and Applications for Concrete Structures (Web-based Training): This new course teaches State Department of Transportation
construction and maintenance operation staff about the types of Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composite material, form, and properties used in the repair and
retrofit of concrete structures, as well as versatility in applications of FRP in the repair of concrete structures.
Construction Procedures and Specifications for Bonded Repair and Retrofit of Concrete Structures (Web-based Training): This new course helps State Department of Transportation
construction and maintenance operation staff understand project requirements of FRP repairs, substrate surface preparation methods, and procedures and steps for
installation of FRP systems.
Quality Control of Repair and Retrofit of Concrete Structures Using FRP Composites (Web-based Training): This new course helps State Department of Transportation construction and
maintenance operation staff understand the requirements of quality assurance and quality control during construction. It equips participants with the necessary means to
control the application of the repair system and the adequacy of the construction process.
Transportation Performance Management
MAP-21 Transportation Performance Management Overview (Including FAST Act Updates) (Instructor-led Training): This updated course presents an overview of the
Transportation Performance Management (TPM) provisions of The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) and Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act)
and describes the responsibilities that agencies at several levels have in delivering these requirements. It also highlights the importance of data in meeting the
performance management provisions and captures noteworthy practices in use today that may help agencies get started on meeting these requirements. This course includes
the latest updates to the FAST Act.
