Traffic Management Centers Design & Operations
May 17 - 27, 2021 | Online Training
16 Professional Development Hours

Traffic Management Centers (TMCs) have been described as the heart of an agency's mobility management system. In practice, TMCs serve as the technical and institutional hubs that facilitate interagency coordination and integrate a wide range of traffic a wide range of traffic management strategies to achieve the collective goal of providing safe, efficient and sustainable transportation infrastructure. Because of its critical role in the successful operation of a mobility management systems, it is essential that the TMC be planned for, designed, and maintained to allow operators and other stakeholders to anticipate demands placed on the network, initiate traffic control strategies, coordinate their responses to situations and incidents.

10 Professional Development Hours

This course introduces scientific principles for forecasting the benefits of road safety projects. The goal is to estimate and defend reductions in fatalities and serious injuries, to assign dollar valuations to proposed improvements, and to compare these benefits to project or program costs. After projects are completed, a good observational before-after study can evaluate interventions and generate learnings that feedback into the next forecast.

Human Factors in Road Safety
June 21 - 24, 2021 | Online Training
10 Professional Development Hours

This course is about learning to design with the human in mind. The human is the most complex and variable element of the transportation system, but professionals who learn the human's design parameters and how to make infrastructure that is compatible with these parameters will help deliver substantial gains in road safety during the second Decade of Action. The first half of the course provides a theoretical foundation and grounding in understanding human limitations, how humans process information, how humans complete the driving tasks, and how humans end up making errors. The second half translates the theory into practice, helping designers to bring positive guidance, design consistency, and self-explaining roads to their work. The second half of the course will be rich with examples and application-ready lessons.
