Support of the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council (TCCC)

Rebuilding and maintaining the Nation's highways requires agencies and industry to have a trained and qualified workforce from agencies and industry. With the loss of experience in the workforce, training is an industry priority. Agencies and the highway industry across the country face this serious shortage of trained and experienced personnel because of attrition and an aging workforce. The challenge must be met to preserve the system investments and carry out capital improvements for future growth. Since 2000, the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council (TCCC), a partnership between the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), State and local departments of transportation (DOTs), and private industry, has diligently worked to support the training of transportation industry's technical personnel. The TCCC's mission is to: (1) Provide leadership at the national level. (2) Develop and maintain national curricula for the various transportation disciplines. (3) Identify training and certification requirements. (4) Coordinate/facilitate training efforts. To achieve its mission, the TCCC embraces the following objectives: (a) Optimize resources through concentrated efforts in the development of core training and qualification mediums. (b) Improve the skills and abilities of the transportation technical personnel. (c) Promote the sharing of technical training resources among government and private transportation industry organizations. (d) Promote uniformity in training content and qualification requirements to facilitate reciprocity between States, local organizations, and regions. (e) Optimize the usage of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) standards in training development.
