ITS Standards Training Modules

The ITS Professional Capacity Building Program (ITS PCB) is pleased to offer FREE ITS standards training. The 35-module series is for practitioners in state and local highway agencies and transit agencies who seek the skills needed to procure, implement, and operate standards-based systems. Consultants, system designers, integrators, and testers will also find the training informative.
