In-person Training

Highway Capacity Analysis Course

This course is for engineering and planning professionals who wish to gain a deeper understanding of HCM methods and their applications. It is also designed to provide a solid foundation for those who are studying for exams such as PE or PTOE.

Lectures, software demonstrations, and application examples on the HCM 6th Edition procedures. Step-by-step instruction of methodologies for different HCM Chapters (Freeways, Highways, Intersections, Streets, Interchanges) will be provided, followed by application examples. The key learning outcomes from this course are:

  • Understand the scope of HCM analyses
  • Understand analysis inputs and interpret results
  • Use the basics of Highway Capacity Software to perform HCM analyses

There are no prerequisites for this course. If software hands-on content is included, attendees are required to bring their own computers to class.

A comprehensive workbook is provided for the lectures.

The course format and length can be customized to your organization’s needs depending on the objectives and experience level of attendees. For example, a shorter course configuration can focus on the methodological aspects (“no hands-on”), while a longer configuration can include time for participants to practice with hands-on problems (“with hands on”). A suggested agenda is provided next considering options with and without hands-on content.
