The National Transit Institute (NTI) is presenting a FREE course ($300 for consultants and contractors) entitled “Introduction to Transit Asset Management” in Seattle, WA on November 29-30, 2011 and in Kansas City, MO on December 14-15, 2011.

Transit asset management represents a strategic approach to managing transit assets. It focuses on an agency's business processes for resource allocation and utilization with the objective of better decision-making based upon quality information and well-defined objectives. The key principles of asset management represent a perspective that a department can adopt in looking at its current procedures and seeing how better decisions on infrastructure can be made with better information.

The course is directed at mid- and senior-level managers who are involved in the day-to-day operation and use transit assets including rolling stock, guideway, and facilities to perform their duties. The individuals attending this course could be in the operations, maintenance, facilities, infrastructure and financial areas. If you are interested in attending, please follow this link http://www.ntionline.com/courses/courseinfo.php?id=48 and register on line.

All training is held in accessible facilities. Please advise NTI a minimum of three weeks in advance if you require any special arrangements or materials. NTI reserves the right to limit participation from any one agency.

If you have additional questions, please contact Region 10’s James Saxton at 206-220-4311, or email james.saxton@dot.gov.
