Professional Training

Since 2007, as a natural extension of our structural assessment services, CONSOR has provided professional training for team leaders and bridge inspectors nationwide through both federal and state agencies. We serve as lead instructors for the FHWA’s National Highway Institute (NHI), having taught NHI 130053, Bridge Inspection Refresher Training for over a decade; we now teach NHI 130078, Fracture Critical Inspection Techniques for Steel Bridges; NHI 130099A, Bridge Inspection Nondestructive Evaluation Seminar (BINS); and NHI 134063, Bridge Preservation Module courses. Our course instruction has been recognized by NHI as a “Course of Excellence” several times since 2007 and eight of our instructors have received “Instructor of Excellence” awards for multiple years. Our structural inspection training for Pennsylvania bridge inspectors has included PennDOT’s Basic Bridge Safety Inspection; Bridge Inspection Refresher; BMS2 iForms Training; Bridge Scour Evaluation; and Load Rating Analysis of Highway Bridges courses. We were also selected to develop and deliver PennDOT’s Introduction to Element Level Bridge Inspection course.
