In addition, those who manage individual assets or provide critical information to senior managers, or who have direct responsibility for meeting specific transportation system performance or program delivery targets, are also excellent candidates for attending the course.

Ethics Awareness


The Ethics Awareness for the Transportation Industry course contains good practices from various agencies. The topics of discussion in this training are conflict of interest, safety, fraud, falsification of documentation, reporting ethical concerns, gifts and favors, fairness, personal use of agency property, and consequences.

Not all State agencies' codes of conduct are the same but they all demand similar ethical behavior of their employees. Be sure to access to your agency's codes or check with your supervisor for more information specific to your organization. Each State agency/company has their own work rules, which the viewer needs to review and follow.

  • Describe agency expectations on ethics;
  • Give an example of a current code of conduct policy;
