ARTBA Transportation Builder Institute Building transportation infrastructure-particularly projects owned by public agencies-demands complex leadership, management, specialized safety training and negotiation skills not required by general construction managers. That’s why the ARTBA Transportation Development Foundation (ARTBA-TDF) created the “Transportation Builder Institute” (TBI). This first-of-its-kind industry institute includes educational academies and training programs designed exclusively to meet the professional development needs of transportation construction professionals.

Project Management Academy

In this intensive two or three day program, ideal for new or prospective project leaders, provides both substantive theory and practical application of project management principles for road and bridge building construction project managers. In an interactive setting, participants will learn from experts in the key disciplines that will make them better leaders and managers. Topics are tailored to the needs of transportation contractors, not general construction. Between 10-15 ARTBA Professional Development Hours are available.

Project Delivery Academy

This two-and-a-half day, interactive professional development academy will provide a much more comprehensive overview of Construction Manager-General Contractor (CM/GC) and Design-Build (DB). The academy will dedicate significant time to providing a fundamental level of understanding about CMGC and DB.

P6 Scheduling Academy

This Academy focuses on how to fully and effectively use Primavera Project Planner software (P6)-the transportation construction industry’s standard for project planning and scheduling-to manage projects.

Safety Academy

This intensive five-day program is designed for safety directors, site supervisors, foremen and other members of the management team to provide the skills and information you need to improve safety and profitability on roadway construction sites.  Upon successful completion of the OSHA 500 course, participants will be a qualified trainer in the Outreach Program and will be able to teach the OSHA 10 and 30 hour programs.  Participants will also be provided with an OSHA 10-Hour Course for Roadway Construction Instructor kit and valuable flagger safety training.
