Earlier this month, the Federal Highway Administration and the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials finalized an agreement for a project that provides local and tribal transportation professionals, through funding from FHWA, with access to 120 courses available AASHTO Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council or “TC3” library.

According to FHWA, access to the training resources within the AASHTO TC3 library will help advance the mission of its Center for Local Aid Support or “CLAS” program, which provides training and technical assistance to local government and tribal transportation practitioners across the U.S.

AASHTO said its goal with TC3 is to create and maintain a fully optimized curriculum to respond to the changing needs of the transportation technical workforce. Courses provided by TC3 are developed through a collaboration of national best practices and a network of knowledgeable subject matter experts, the group said, and this connection to practitioners ensures the curriculum informs transportation leaders with potential solutions to the challenges they face today and in the future.

“To deliver results within limited resources, FHWA is actively working to find and implement efficient and effective methods of getting training, resources, materials and information to local and tribal customers,” noted Brandye Hendrickson, FHWA’s acting administrator, in a statement. “This agreement with AASHTO is one more effort to make training and educational information as accessible as possible.”
