Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Problems. Topic 36-07. Training Program Policies, Practices and Practices

A well-trained, multi-disciplinary workforce is necessary to ensure the effective and efficient development, delivery, and management of the Nation's transportation system. Efficient and timely training and professional development efforts will allow agencies and their partners to take full advantage of technological innovation, maximize worker productivity, and ensure the efficient use of limited resources. NCHRP has supported numerous synthesis efforts related to workforce development in the past. The purpose of this study is to formulate a more complete understanding of workforce development processes, to encourage transportation organizations to share successful practices, and to help ensure that the transportation sector has a skilled, competent workforce. Importantly, transportation agencies now encompass infrastructure development, as well as the oversight functions involved in the business of transportation. A synthesis is needed to report on state DOT transportation training, education, and professional development programs in order to provide valuable state of the practice input to the development of better workforce development programs. The consultant submitted Stage I deliverables--work plan, outline, and questionnaire that were distributed for topic panel review and comment.
