The National Transit Institute (NTI) is presenting a FREE course ($500 for consultants and contractors) entitled "Introduction to Transportation Conformity" in Seattle, Washington on November 5-6, 2008.

Primary objectives of the course are:
 To develop a clear understanding of the dynamic relationship between transportation planning and air quality planning in the context of transportation conformity,

 To provide an overview of the transportation planning and project development processes and to show how these processes are linked to the State Implementation Plan (SIP) through the conformity requirements, and

 To provide an understanding of the roles and responsibilities in inter-agency coordination and techniques to provide opportunities for public participation in the conformity process.

The course is structured for new staff members as well as senior staff working in the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Federal Transit Administration (FTA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), state departments of transportation (DOTs), metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), state/county/local planning agencies, state and local air quality agencies, transit agencies and consultant firms.
