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 one-hour sessions providing a full understanding of the practice of transportation impact analysis including three interactive instructor-led discussions and five pre-recorded sessions 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. Individuals who successfully complete this training program will receive an ITE Training Program Certificate.

ITE's Certificate Program:
ITE is committed to the education of the transportation industry therefore we have begun the ITE Certificate Program. This Transportation Impact Analysis (TIA) Training Program is the prototype for ITE's new Certificate Program offerings designed to show mastery over a defined area or topic. The ITE Certificate Program will consist of training courses that provide certificates of achievement in a specific area and level of knowledge. Recognition of achievement for those who complete this program will be posted on our ITE website. We are in development of additional for 2021 and ITE will share more information as they are developed.
