Transportation Builder Institute
Providing Custom Professional Development Programs for Transportation Design & Construction Executives
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
This intensive two-and-a-half 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. Among the topics covered are planning & scheduling, resource management, effective client relations, management & leadership, economics of safety and construction documentation.
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.
Project Delivery Academy
This two-and-a-half day, interactive professional development academy will provide a much more comprehensive overview of CMGC and DB. The academy will dedicate significant time to providing a fundamental level of understanding about CMGC and DB.
Young Executive Development Program
Launched in 1995 and now a model for other national associations, the Young Executive Development Program (YEDP) helps develop the next generation of industry leaders who will shape transportation policy for the future. The YEDP is an intensive, four-day introduction to the federal legislative and regulatory processes that affect the industry in Washington. It includes visits to Capitol Hill for meetings with members of Congress about important transportation development issues.

The National Traffic Management and Work Zone Safety Conference
Since 1985, ARTBA has organized and conducted national conferences to promote roadway work zone safety. Since 2000, the conferences and related trade shows have been offered at least every two years.
