COURSE TITLE: FHWA Bridge Inspector's Manual: Bridge Inspection Reporting
COURSE NO: S05-015
FHWA Bridge Inspector's Manual: Bridge Inspection Reporting
Course Highlights

This engineering online PDH course describes bridge inspection reporting, including structure inventory, condition and appraisal, record keeping and appraisal, the inspection report, and AASTO commonly recognized (CoRe) elements.

 

A uniform reporting system is essential to evaluate the condition of a structure correctly and efficiently and to protect the public’s safety and investment in bridge structures. It is a valuable aid in establishing maintenance priorities and replacement priorities, and in determining structure capacity and the cost of maintaining the nation’s bridges. It is, therefore, essential that bridge inspection data be clear, accurate, and complete, since it is an integral part of the lifelong record file of the bridge.
