TC3 is AASHTO's training Technical Service Program (TSP).
Under the AASHTO TSP pooled fund format, member DOTs receive an annual solicitation in July request to consider providing financial support for all TSPs, including TC3. Each state or territory that contributes increases the budget TC3 has available for developing training opportunities. Funding goes directly to the creation of additional courses and updates to existing courses and increases the rate of return on investment for all contributors. The current return on investment for each contributing DOT is 1,750%. The annual contributions allow us to aggregate and leverage the investments of all members to develop and sustain a significantly larger program than achievable by each state on its own.
AASHTO and TC3 released our new Learning Management System in the summer of 2015, and a tiered fee structure was implemented allowing TC3 financial supporters to have free access to the entire curriculum, along with a public sector and private sector tier of pricing. The combination of all revenue sources will strengthen our ability to expand and sustain the program well into the future, contributing to the growth and improved competencies of the transportation technical workforce.
