The National Transit Institute (NTI) is presenting a FREE course ($850 for consultants & contractors) entitled “Transit Noise & Vibration Impact Assessment” in Denver, Colorado on March 17-19, 2009.

This course is aimed at practitioners who conduct noise and vibration analyses as well as those who prepare and review environmental impact assessments for transit projects. Managers overseeing the environmental review process for a major project may also benefit from this course.

The goal of the course is to present the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) procedures and methods for predicting and assessing noise and vibration impacts from proposed mass transit projects. The training modules in this three-day course closely follow the procedures contained in FTA’s recently updated guidance on the subject (Transit Noise and Vibration Impact Assessment, May 2006). The course gives an overview of the environmental review process and how noise and vibration assessment fits into FTA’s planning and project development processes. Fundamentals of noise and vibration are discussed along with the specific metrics and impact criteria that are used in noise and vibration assessments.
