Economic times have been hard for federal, state and local transportation agencies as well as industry representatives since the recession started. Getting approval to travel for conferences or training classes has been difficult if not impossible. The Geotechnical Team at the FHWA and the National Highway Institute (NHI) has come up with a solution to that problem by offering training in an online virtual environment. In the near term they will be offering a tour of the virtual training venue and technology showcase and plan to have more demos in the coming months. They will offer the first training at the March 2015 International Foundation Congress and Equipment Expo (IFCEE) in San Antonio, Texas.
