Professional Development Hours

Professional Development Hours (PDHs )are available for an additional fee. Attending a training session earns 4 PDHs. We expect at least 7 PDHs will be available at the conference. The final number of available PDHs will be determined in October and posted here.

We will be using scanners at the Bridge Conference for those earning PDHs. To earn PDHs for each eligible Session, participants needed to be scanned in and out for each Session. The PDHs are being given for each Session, not each talk. Participants needed to be scanned in prior to the first talk of each Session and scanned a second time on the way out at the end of the Session.

PDHs for the Training Session and the Conference will be mailed to you at the address you gave when you registered. Please note that this will NOT be done until payment is received.

Training materials

Bridge Conference materials


Since 1994 we have collaborated with the New York State Department of Transportation Structures Division to present a conference about bridge issues for local governments. It is held in the Syracuse area and runs for 1½ days.

A Steering Committee guides the Conference format and program, meeting two or three times annually. The Conference is intended to actively foster partnerships between local agencies with bridge responsibility and the NYSDOT. Conference participants include NYS county, city, town, and village highway officials; representatives of state and federal agencies; and private sector personnel.
