Monthly News from the National Highway Institute | December 2019



old to new logo with caption

As we reach the cusp of celebrating 50 years of service, the National Highway Institute is focused on MOVING FORWARD, GIVING BACK.  Since 1970, NHI has worked to ensure that our nation’s transportation professionals are at the forefront of their field through quality training.

Now we have a golden opportunity to give back and reinvest in our workforce. As part of this initiative, NHI is offering discounts on ALL our courses throughout 2020. That’s right, ALL of them, no exceptions. Throughout 2020, all instructor-led trainings are 50% off, and all web-based trainings are 100% off (yes, you read that correctly). We will also be sponsoring select Golden Anniversary sessions to State DOTs, Tribal governments, and other FWHA partners!

While 50 years is a great milestone, NHI is working to improve transportation training for the future. That’s why we’re determined to make our trainings more accessible and affordable. This 2020 discount is just the start. NHI is moving forward with rebranding (including a new logo), modernizing our training methods and deliveries and continually looking for ways to offer more trainings to more industry professionals. Stay tuned to see what other exciting things we have in store for the new year!

This new, self-paced, 4-hour web-based training was designed to help transportation professionals like you learn how to effectively incorporate the public in the planning, programming, and development stages of transportation projects.

Whether your projects are small or large, effectively engaging the public in transportation decisions can help build support for the project, reduce costs and project delays, and improve the project delivery process. Register for this course today to learn how engaging the public in transportation projects can help you serve your organization!
