TAMC Data Collection Training

About TAMC Data Collection Trainings

Since 2003, the TAMC has required road agencies to collect and submit roadway condition information based on PASER. That information has been used to generate annual reports, populated interactive maps and generate a wide range of performance measures presented in dashboards. In addition to use by the TAMC, many agencies use PASER data to help manage their road systems and convey information to the public.

The Center for Technology and Training has offered PASER/IBR since 2008, with current options to complete the training online and in-person.
