Development of PacTrans Workforce Development Institute - Phase 3

To further ensure and strengthen the advantages of developed WDI in dealing with Region 10’s specific workforce development needs, the WDI is currently collaborating with Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) to deliver training services to address WSDOT’s immediate workforce development needs. Specifically, the WSDOT representatives have identified three top priority subjects that need training, i.e., the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), human factors, and data analysis and tools. The PacTrans WDI team will design, develop, and deliver three short-term training courses in respond to these training needs. Besides onsite training courses, the team will also provide online course offering to WSDOT’s professionals. In addition, the team will develop training service model that aims to collaborate between WDI and WSDOT to provide demand responsive and flexible training services to address the long-term training needs.
