Transportation Impact Analysis (TIA) Training Program -- Fall 2024

Registration for this course now open.

When: September 9 -- October 21, 2024

Course Description

The Transportation Impact Analysis (TIA) Training Program is a certificate-based, blended learning program that provides students with a comprehensive coverage of the technical elements of the TIA preparation and review. This training program consists of eight one-hour sessions providing a full understanding of the practice of transportation impact analysis including three virtual interactive instructor-led discussions and five pre-recorded sessions accessible anytime within the program period to accommodate the pace and schedule of the student. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to interact directly with a live panel of experts as they explore the intricacies of real world TIA applications.

Topics covered include requirements for when a TIA is required, recommended qualifications for both the preparer and reviewer, definition of the site development characteristics, designation of the study area and description of its characteristics, description of TIA-specific analysis tools, assessment of current conditions and forecast methods for evaluating future conditions, estimation of modal trips generated by site, distribution and assignment of site-generated modal trips, multi-modal analysis, safety analysis, evaluation of site access needs, identification of on-site and off-site mitigation alternatives that support TIA recommendations, and preparation and presentation of a complete final report.

Three live instructor led discussion sessions will also provide real-world case studies, addressing emerging issues such as impact fees and special assessment districts.These discussions are designed and intended to reinforce the content learned from the modules completed prior to the live session. Individuals who successfully complete this training program will receive an ITE Training Program Certificate.

This program is targeted towards practitioners early in their career with a focus on foundational knowledge and skills necessary for TIA preparation and review.
