Apr 4 - 5, 2017  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: Interactive Highway Safety Design Model  - This course instructs highway design project managers, planners, designers, and traffic and safety reviewers in the application of the Interactive Highway Safety Design Model (IHSDM) software and provides guidance on interpretation of the output. IHSDM is a suite of software tools to evaluate safety of two-lane rural highways. The software, developed for FHWA, was released in 2003 after several years of research and development to provide state-of-the-art techniques for safety analysis. IHSDM contains five tools that can be used to apply the most recent safety analysis techniques in a relatively straightforward and automated manner. For more information about IHSDM, go to http://www.tfhrc.gov/safety/ihsdm/ihsdm.htm. Participants gain hands-on experience with the software. Therefore, the training facility must be equipped with computers. There should be no more than two participants per computer. Minimum system specifications for the computers are as follows: Operating System - Microsoft Vista, Windows XP or Windows 2000 Professional; HTML Browser - Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, or Foxfire; Spreadsheet Program, Microsoft Excel or equivalent; Hardware - At least 450 MHz Pentium III (or equivalent) CPU, 256 MB RAM or greater desirable, 800x600 high colors (16 bit) display; and 300 MB free disk space

Dec 6 - 7, 2016  National Highway Institute  NHI Training: Writing Effective Program Review Reports: Moving People to Action  - The ability to provide clear communication is vital to the business of FHWA and good writing skills are a key element in the communication process. FHWA uses program reviews as tools to fulfill its stewardship and oversight responsibilities, manage program risk, and identify process improvements for the Federal-aid program. Each year, FHWA conducts approximately 200 program reviews. The product of these reviews is usually a review that details the observations and recommendations of the review team in an effort to improve a process or product. The review's effectiveness is largely determined by how well the review is communicated to the target audience. The goal of this course is to improve the writing skills of FHWA's employees. Improved writing skills should lead to higher quality review reviews, which in turn should increase FHWA's ability to motivate the reading audience to act upon the review's recommendations. Action on the part of the reader will ultimately lead to improved effectiveness in delivering FHWA programs by reducing costs, accelerating project delivery, and improving stewardship and oversight. Throughout this course, you will learn that effective writing is more than proper punctuation and using spell-check. It's learning how to write for your audience, the busy reader. You will also learn writing skills that will aid in motivating your readers to action.

Mar 28 - 30, 2017  National Highway Institute  NHI Training: Public Involvement in the Transportation Decisionmaking Process  - Public involvement is much more than public hearings. It involves creative thinking as well as the willingness and ability to interact openly and sensitively to the public's preferred forms of communication and participation. Public involvement is about reaching out to and involving the public in transportation decisionmaking. The public should have a role in every phase of decisionmaking, including the design of the participation plan itself. Successful public involvement addresses the public's procedural, psychological, and substantive needs while gathering useful information. By focusing on interests--rather than positions--public involvement can become more meaningful as well as useful.

Participants in this blended course (combination of Web-based and instructor-led formats) learn how, when, and where in the project development process to identify and conduct effective utility coordination. Participants first take a self-paced, Web-based training to learn about regulatory requirements for both public and private utilities, subsurface utility engineering (SUE), and their own State's Utility Accommodation Policy. During the 2-day classroom event, participants learn to identify risks and potential issues associated with utilities, and then work together to evaluate ways to avoid or mitigate those risks and issues. (Please note: An optional lesson on utility challenges in projects using design-build delivery and other alternative contracting methods is available to be taught at the discretion of the State.) By putting these lessons into practice, utility-related complications in many cases can be predicted and mitigated at the most appropriate stage of project development, which can reduce potential negative impacts to timeline and budget.
