Highway Capacity Analysis Virtual Series

Virtual or In-Person | Applicable for 12 PDHs

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

Experienced instructors will provide an overview of the methodology steps, highlighting key concepts, best practices, common mistakes and limitations of the methods. The instructor will also highlight major methodological changes in the 7th Edition of HCM (2022).
