Winter Weather Management and Operations Curriculum Development and Instruction

Abstract

Winter Weather Management and Operations Curriculum Development and Instruction

This project produced two training programs on the topic of winter weather roadway maintenance for the Texas Department of Transportation, one for management and one for operations personnel. The winter weather management training program consisted of curriculum development, instructional design, a pilot training course, and delivery of seven statewide training events. The winter weather operations training program consisted of curriculum development, instructional design, a pilot training course, and delivery of two 12-hour, instructor-led, "train-the trainer" training events. The curriculum has been designed so that the training is sustainable; that is, the winter weather training classes can be offered to TxDOT personnel by qualified trainers in future years.
