FHWA and AASHTO Team Up to Provide Transportation Education Online to Local Public and Tribal Agencies

Posted by Brandye Hendrickson, Acting Administrator, Federal Highway Administration and Bud Wright, Executive Director, American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials

If you are a transportation practitioner working for a local or tribal government and want to improve your construction, maintenance, and material selection processes and projects, FHWA and the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials have some fantastic news. Earlier this month, FHWA and AASHTO finalized an agreement that will provide local and tribal transportation professionals with free access to the AASHTO TC3 library.

AASHTO TC3 provides over 120 courses and some of the best online training available anywhere. AASHTO’s 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.  

In providing financial support in order to give tribal and local government employees the ability to access AASHTO’s TC3 library, FHWA is advancing the mission of its Center for Local Aid Support (CLAS): providing training and technical assistance to local government and tribal transportation practitioners across the United States.
