Oct 7-11, 2018, in Chattanooga TN

Due to the unfortunate timing and track of Hurricane Nate, the NTTD Executive Board was tasked with the difficult decision to cancel the 2017 conference scheduled during October in Point Clear, Alabama.  All registration fees have been refunded and we would like to apologize for any inconvenience this unforeseen cancellation has caused anyone. We thank our partners at the Alabama Department of Transportation who spent many hours in preparation, and the many members who had prepared workshops and presentations. You will still see much of that work, either at the 2018 conference or in webinar and virtual programs leading up to it.

Each year NTTD highlights innovative training policies, programs and technologies that serve the unique needs of the transportation community, bringing together DOT staff and trainers, LTAP personnel, and national training resource experts from federal, university and private sector organizations. Members of the transportation training community exchange ideas about training innovations and resources, develop collaborative relationships and networks, and learn from leading experts in the field.
