IDOT Noise Training
October 24 @ 7:30 am - 5:00 pm
OCTOBER 24, 2018
Location: Erin’s Pavilion, Springfield, IL
This one-day traffic noise training class, with a working lunch, is a two-tracked opportunity for consultants and public agencies to learn about the latest IDOT noise policy updates, with an option for consultants to start the path to IDOT prequalification for traffic noise analyses.
The IDOT Highway Traffic Noise Assessment Manual was updated in 2017, which resulted in changes to some noise analysis and reporting procedures. For consultants currently prequalified for IDOT traffic noise analyses, this course is a refresher of IDOT policy and procedures, new and old.
For a consultant to become prequalified for IDOT traffic noise analysis, IDOT requires the completion of NHI course #142051, “Highway Traffic Noise,” in addition to other requirements. For consultants seeking IDOT prequalification in traffic noise, this course can be taken in place of the NHI course for prequalification purposes. For this course to replace the NHI course, a rigorous take-home exam must also be completed (due no later than 30 days after the course date).
Additionally, the 2-hour NHI online course “Highway Traffic Noise: Basic Acoustics” (FHWA-NHI-142063) is required to be completed prior to the IDOT Noise Training for those looking to become prequalified for IDOT traffic noise analysis.
