Event  Columbus, OH 
Sep 6 - 7, 2017  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: Bicycle Facility Design  - This training will assist planners and designers in learning how to apply the existing standards and how to deal with other technical issues involved. The availability of Federal, State, and local transportation funding for bicycle facilities that serve transportation and recreational users is resulting in a dramatic increase in the number of bicycling (and shared use) facilities being planned and built. Although there are no Federal design standards for bicycle facilities, the AASHTO Guide for the Development of Bicycle Facilities, or a modification thereof, serves as a design guide. As with most guides, the AASHTO guide cannot address every possible scenario so designers often need to apply engineering judgment where specific information is not provided. The training fee includes a copy of the AASHTO Guide for the Development of Bicycle Facilities.

Aug 22 - 23, 2017  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: Road Safety Audits/Assessments  - Performing effective road safety audits/assessments, (RSAs), improves safety and demonstrates to the public an agency's dedication to crash reduction. An RSA is a formal safety performance examination of an existing or future road or intersection by an independent audit team. The RSA training provides practical information on how to conduct an RSA, select a location, and build an independent, multi-disciplinary team. The costs, time, benefits, and common myths and concerns surrounding RSAs will be discussed. Participants learn how to improve transportation safety by applying a new proactive approach. Emphasis is placed on using low cost safety improvements as well as understanding the interaction between the highway and all road users. The training includes hands-on application of the training materials, which includes information on each stage of a road safety audit and easy-to-use-prompt lists. A copy of "FHWA Road Safety Audit Guidelines" is provided.

Jun 12 - 16, 2017  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: FHWA Basic Contracting Officers Representative (COR) Training  - Contracting Officer's Representatives (COR) are integral to the acquisition process and perform critical acquisition functions; FHWA relies on CORs to help the Contracting Officer (CO) monitor work conducted under contracts in order to meet the Agency mission. Because of this important role, FHWA needs to develop the knowledge of their new and mid-career hires in the area of acquisition management. The overall course goal is to address the essential core competencies, outlined by the Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP), required for CORs to effectively monitor Federal Government contracts. The class is tailored to meet the specific needs of FHWA CORs with examples and content directed to common contract types and issues faced by FHWA and Federal Lands Programs. Participants who successfully complete the course will earn 40 Continuous Learning Points in support of a Level II FAC-COR certification.
