The National Transit Institute (NTI) is presenting a FREE course, “Risk Assessment for Transit Capital Projects”, ($300 for consultants and contractors) scheduled for June 29-30, 2010 in Hanover, Maryland and November 9-10, 2010 in Portland, Oregon.

The objective of this two-day course is to provide an overview of the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) risk review requirements and process. This is a comprehensive course; however, the following pre-requisites are recommended:

• General knowledge of transit systems and common design and construction issues;
• Basic understanding of how New Starts transit development occurs within the context of the FTA funding assistance; and
• Experience with standard project metrics, such as estimating and scheduling.

Participants will learn the purpose of a risk review, necessary preparations required to undertake a risk assessment, principles of the methods used for risk assessment, and how such assessments are applied to the project management process.

This course is intended for managers, contract managers, designers, and builders who are undertaking a transit capital project larger than $300 million. However, please keep in mind that the content of this course is scalable for small and medium projects.
