Course Description

The Transportation Impact Analysis (TIA) Training Program is a new 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 modules providing a full understanding of the practice of transportation impact analysis including three interactive instructor-led discussions and five pre-recorded modules accessible anytime within the program period to accommodate the pace and schedule of the student.

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 and address new and emerging issues such as impact fees and special assessment districts and the impacts of COVID-19 on traffic impact analysis. This program will also provide the student a TIA example problem to work through and then discuss with instructors on a live session. The live sessions will be interactive and participant engagement is strongly encouraged. Individuals who successfully complete this training program will receive an ITE Training Program Certificate.
