The Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) section helps project managers and team members grow their project management skills through training, role modeling, and mentoring support.



The PPM Project Management Training Program offers instructor led classroom training focused on assisting project managers and project teams to deliver successful projects.

While TxDOT employees have first priority in enrolling in courses, consultants and contractors are welcome to register for classes on a first-come, first-serve basis. Certification for course completion is not offered to external attendees.

Target audience

  • Existing and developing project managers.
  • Project team members, engineers, and supporting technical staff.
  • Anyone who leads projects or supporting tasks.


Registration begins 30-45 days before the course start date, if seats are available. See timeline.

There is no fee associated with these classes.


If a course or seat reservation is cancelled, an email notification will be sent and you will be placed on a waiting list for the next course.

We reserve the right to cancel your reservation for any reason, including:
