Yearly, TSI provides face-to-face, virtual, and web-based training to upwards of 25,000 individuals. The agency strives to develop relevant, and comprehensive courses addressing the intricacies and challenges unique to extant transportation modes, and disseminate such via the very latest courseware, concepts, technologies, and instructional infrastructures. In doing so, the TSI, carries out its stated mission of: “ … improving the safety of the worldwide transportation system through the training of transportation safety professionals across federal, state, local and international governments, as well as private industry.”
