Educating and training are important elements of creating bikable and walkable communities, empowering public agency staff, stakeholders, and the public with best practices in active transportation. Alta staff regularly lead seminars and training courses on a wide variety of research and educational topics.
Alta staff are certified in the following:
NACTO Urban Bikeway Design Guide and Urban Street Design Guide
The National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) Urban Bikeway and Urban Street Design Guides are the go-to guides for cutting edge on-street bikeway and street design, based on lessons learned from the world’s best bicycling cities and city street designs, both in the US and beyond. Alta was invited by NACTO to certify selected team members to provide training on how to best use the design guides. We bring the benefit of having managed the development of the Urban Bikeway Design Guide, plus years of experience conducting NACTO trainings across North America.
National Complete Streets Coalition Instructors
The National Complete Streets Coalition through an intensive selection process asked a few key Alta staff to be ambassadors for and trainers of Complete Streets so that more communities could experience the great benefits that complete streets can offer. Alta’s certified Complete Streets Instructors work with agency staff and decision makers to develop and connect their policies and practices for implementing Complete Streets approaches in their community.
League of American Bicyclists “League Certified Instructors”
Alta’s League Cycling Instructors teach classes educate adults and children on how to ride safely and legally, helping them feel more secure about getting on a bike.
National Safe Routes to School Instructors
Community and state SRTS programs, metropolitan planning organizations, health departments, transportation departments, schools, and city governments rely on Alta’s Safe Routes to School instructors to teach them how to identify the most appropriate strategies for implementing their SRTS program.
Alta staff are trained to provide a curriculum of classroom and field work designed to increase understanding of Public Right-of-Way Accessibility Guidelines (PROWAG) and FHWA ADA policies, working through the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals (APBP).
