Significant Cost Savings for Your Department

TC3’s shared resources approach allows states to reach their training performance goals despite tighter budgets, a shrinking workforce, and ever-changing technology.

Over the last 10-plus years, TC3 has developed, converted, and updated more than 200 web-based trainings totaling more than 420 instructional hours of transportation-related instruction. For a $20,000 contribution to this AASHTO Technical Service Program, AASHTO member departments have unlimited access to the entire TC3 curriculum!

Leveraging TC3 training provides cost savings in several areas, including course development, travel, and learning management.

Developmental Costs

About 2 hours of Instructional Training

($9,500 per hour)

Since our inception, TC3 has tracked all costs related to developing and supporting every course in the curriculum. Our numbers show that the average cost per instructional hour is $9,500. All trainings can be provided for upload onto your state’s LMS or can be taken for free on the TC3 LMS with a registered state DOT email address.


Travel Costs

Send 20 Employees to an Out-of-state, Instructor-led Training

($1,000 per trip)

Classroom training programs become very expensive very quickly. Training online with the TC3 allows employees to skip the costs of in-person professional development and train on their time.


Learning Management System Costs

Less Than Half of a Learning Management System

($50,000-plus Annual LMS Fee)

Our learning management system (LMS) costs more than $50,000 annually, and we absorb the cost so you don’t have to. Your state contact or subscription manager will work with TC3 LMS coordinators to troubleshoot issues with training, provide course files for your state’s LMS, and generate customizable training reports.
