New Web-based Training from NHI and TCCC! 134107: TCCC Recognizing Roadside Weeds (Southeastern States)

This training was prepared by the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council (TCCC) in partnership with NHI. The course is designed for those interested in learning the fundamentals of vegetation management; however, it is not designed to cover weed prevention. This training is recommended for TCCC levels I and II.
This course will cover the basics of weed identification. The first step in determining an appropriate weed control strategy is to identify the weed plant - there are numerous types of plants growing along roadsides, many of which are often confused with weeds. Most weeds grow in a specific region or climate; therefore, it is difficult for State DOTs to apply a national strategy for weed identification. This training focuses on southeastern States and is organized according to the varieties of weeds present in that region.

New Web-based Training! 131129: TCCC HMA Paving Field Inspection


This training was prepared by the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council (TCCC) in partnership with NHI to provide guidance and instruction to inspectors involved in the construction of hot mix asphalt (HMA) pavements. The course will explain the important tasks involved in HMA paving and describe proper procedures for executing them. This training is recommended for TCCC levels I, II, and III.


This training is designed to help inspectors learn the various aspects of what is involved in a HMA paving operation as well as become familiar with the duties that are a part of the HMA pavement grade inspection responsibilities. In addition, the course explains how to recognize the mix properties of a HMA mixture. The knowledge gained from this training will assist inspectors in recognizing problems during a project so that they can offer solutions to those problems. The course is not designed to cover all aspects of HMA paving.

Updated Instructor-led Training! 131106: Transportation Asset Management
Traditionally, transportation agencies have managed each of their assets independently, often by delaying improvements until substantial treatments were needed. Budgets were susceptible to political influences and there was often a lack of clear performance objectives to influence agency decisions.


Today, asset management principles are becoming increasingly important to help agencies manage their assets as they face fewer available resources, higher expectations for customer service, and increased demand for more transparency in the decisionmaking process. In an asset management environment, investment decisions are linked to targeted performance levels that have been established based on current and expected asset conditions. Trade-offs between investments in different types of assets and different investment priorities can be assessed because of the availability of reliable data and a clear set of performance metrics that the agency hopes to achieve. As a result, agencies are better able to use their funding effectively and defend their need for additional resources.


The Transportation Asset Management course introduces a strategic approach to managing physical transportation infrastructure. This course covers the principles of asset management and introduces the five core questions every agency should be able to answer about its assets. The course also illustrates available tools to support the use of asset management in transportation agencies and provides guidelines for the implementation of those principles. The course materials were updated in December of 2009 to place more of an emphasis on the use of asset management principles and the implementation of these concepts.

Updated course! The Pavement Preservation Treatment Series (FHWA-NHI-131110A-K) presents information on different preservation treatments available, materials, and how they should be selected and applied, so agencies can make informed decisions when determining which treatments best fit their pavement preservation needs. The trainings utilize information from Pavement Preservation Treatment Construction Guide (PPTCG), a resource for agency and industry pavement preservation practitioners. To become more informed about any one of the pavement preservation treatments discussed in the PPTCG, or to find out how to select the appropriate treatment for your work, you can take one of the stand-alone trainings offered.
