TEXAS IN-HOUSE DESIGN TRAINING PROGRAMS. HIGHWAY SUBCOMMITTEE ON DESIGN OF THE STANDING COMMITTEE ON HIGHWAYS

In view of the fact that it has seen as many as 8,400 of its experienced and trained engineers and engineering technicians retire in 1987 alone, the Texas State Department of Highways and Public Transportation, embarked upon an in-house training program to provide technical training to improve the quantity and quality of plans, specifications and estimates (PS&E) and schematic design. The program consists of the following three levels: Level I-a basic course for technicians with less than one year of design experience; Level II-an intermediate course for those with two to three years of design experience; and Level III-an advanced course on application of design principles for newly graduated engineers with three or more years of experience in design and certain technicians according to their job requirements.
