SEI-IL Bridge Inspection Refresher Training

NHI Course #130053

The SEI Illinois Chapter is hosting NHI’s Bridge Inspection Refresher Training course in downtown Chicago. Registration is open to everyone but will be limited to a maximum of 17 registrants.

The major goals of this course are to refresh the skills of practicing bridge inspectors in fundamental visual inspection techniques; review the background knowledge necessary to understand how bridges function; communicate issues of national significance relative to the nations' bridge infrastructures; re-establish proper condition and appraisal rating practices; and review the professional obligations of bridge inspectors.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the current overall condition and condition trends for the nation's bridges
  • Identify the recent National Bridge Inspection Standards (NBIS) revisions
  • Accurately code National Bridge Inventory (NBI) items
  • Identify and document inspection observations using standard methods
  • Evaluate defects based on the AASHTO Manual for Bridge Evaluation
  • Code NBI components using the Recording and Coding Guide for the Structure Inventory and Appraisal of the Nation's Bridges
  • Determine if overall structure/structural member is fracture critical prone
  • Accurately inspect and evaluate a bridge's four traffic safety features
  • List the keys to ensuring a safe work environment
  • Explain bridge responses and bridge mechanic principles

The course is built to accommodate those that have completed comprehensive bridge inspection training (130055 or similar) or met the criteria for a bridge inspector under the State's procedures or requirements.
