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 Foundation 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 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. Professional Development Hours are also 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.
