Albuquerque, NM, Sept. 13, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Applied Research Associates, Inc. (ARA) is pleased to announce it is the provider for the National Highway Institute (NHI) course on risk management (NHI-310065), instructed by ARA transportation experts.

Managing transportation networks – including agency management, program development, and project delivery – is extremely complex and fraught with uncertainty. Any agency can use risk management as the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) does: to focus limited resources; strengthen its ability to prioritize; and improve communication and foster transparent leadership.

In this two-day, instructor-led class, participants will be exposed to the principles, tools, and techniques used to identify, prioritize, respond to, and monitor risk. You will learn to apply these risk management tools and techniques at any level of an organization (enterprise, program, project, or activity).

Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize the connection between effective risk management and achieving organizational objectives
  • Follow the steps of the risk management process to identify and develop risk strategies
  • Apply the risk management process to one’s own level of decision-making within an organization.
