Event Date Organization Event Name Type Location
Oct 24 - 25, 2017  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: Risk-Based Stewardship and Oversight (Federal Version)  - This Instructor-led Training (ILT) course will expand participants' understanding of the risk-based processes, roles and responsibilities that Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Division and Program Office personnel are using to help optimize the effective and efficient delivery of the Federal-aid Highway Program (FAHP), and to help ensure its compliance with Federal laws and regulations. This approach, as it is being implemented, is commonly known as the Risk-based Stewardship and Oversight (RBSO) approach and builds upon the risk management foundation in the agency's strategic and performance planning processes. The RBSO model is designed to identify risk-based S&O actions and initiatives at both the national and Division levels for both programs and projects.

Oct 24 - 25, 2017  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: Conducting Effective Program Reviews  - To accomplish FHWA's Stewardship Mission, units at every level and in every program area need the expertise to plan, design and carry out, often jointly with partners, reviews to ensure that operational processes are consistent with established standards and expectations, performing at the most effective and efficient level, and that best practices are captured and made available to units at all levels. Building on FHWA experience and expertise gained through Program Reviews, Process Reviews, and Continuous Process Improvement Reviews, an improved workshop, tailored to the unit's needs is now being offered. The Workshop consists of assistance in the form of consultation, training and hands on assistance in the methodology and tools for conducting successful reviews.

Nov 1 - 2, 2017  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: Steps to Effective Target Setting for TPM  - The passage of MAP-21 further emphasized the importance of target setting within a performance management context. MAP-21 requires State Departments of Transportation (State DOTs), Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs), and public transit providers to set performance targets for the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) established national performance measures. This course explains the elements of target setting and focuses on how to set reasonable, attainable targets.

Nov 28 - 30, 2017  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: Planning and Designing for Pedestrian Safety  - The Planning and Designing for Pedestrian Safety is a combination of the information from the 2-day "Developing a Pedestrian Safety Action Plan" (NHI-380089) and 2-day "Designing for Pedestrian Safety" (NHI-380090) course. This comprehensive course is designed to help state and local officials learn "HOW TO" address pedestrian safety issues in the development of a pedestrian safety action plan, and specific programs and activities tailored to their community. It is also intended to assist agencies in the further enhancement of their existing pedestrian safety plan, programs, and activities, including involving partners and stakeholders, collecting and analyzing data and information, prioritizing issues and concerns, selecting and implementing an optimal combination of education, enforcement, engineering strategies. This course goes into more detail on engineering strategies than the "Developing a Pedestrian Safety Action Plan" (NHI-380089) course. This course includes two field exercises in the application of the principles, concepts, and strategies covered in the course. Also the participants will share and prioritize potential policies, programs, and strategies.

Dec 12 - 14, 2017  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: Highways in the Coastal Environment  - Over 60,000 miles of roads in the United States are occasionally exposed to coastal surge and waves. Due to these unique design conditions, many highways and bridges suffer damage during coastal storms, including hurricanes and El Nino events. The purpose of this course is to teach important concepts and terminology of coastal science and engineering to highway engineers for use in the planning and design of coastal roads. The course is based on the Hydraulic Engineering Circular (HEC) No. 25, "Highways in the Coastal Environment" (2nd Edition), which is also used in the course as a reference manual.

Jan 23 - 25, 2018  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: Managing Road Impacts on Stream Ecosystems: An Interdisciplinary Approach  - Managing Road Impacts on Stream Ecosystems: An Interdisciplinary Approach is a three-day course that is intended to introduce and discuss the basic concepts related to the impacts that roadways have on streams and stream ecosystems. The course will be structured to first address the ecological and physical characteristics of stream ecosystems, discuss the impacts that roadways can have on those ecosystems, and then turn to tools that the practitioner can use to help avoid and mitigate those effects. Through the use of Case Examples, discussion, and other application techniques, the participants will be afforded an opportunity to use critical thinking to identify solutions and preventative measures related to the impacts of roads on streams and their riparian communities.

Feb 13 - 14, 2018  National Highway Institute  NHI Course: Highway Program Funding  - This instructor-led training provides an overview of the Federal-aid Highway Program, focusing on various aspects of highway program funding unique to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Topics include: the operation of the Highway Trust Fund and its significance to the funding level of the Federal-aid Highway Program; the content and policy implications of authorizing and appropriating legislation; the FHWA apportionment process; discussion of obligation limitation, allocations, deductions, earmarking, and transferability; and the effect of policy and budget considerations on the use of Federal-aid funds. The course has been updated to complement the new Federal-aid authorization bill.
