A Regional Traffic Safety Center survey was conducted to ascertain the demand for highway safety training in North Dakota. For many organizations, this training has been mandated through government regulations. To comply with these regulations, organizations could provide training to their members either through in-house programs or by sending members to off-site facilities. Many organizations in North Dakota, however, may be too small to justify an in-house training program. As a result, these organizations rely on outside "contractors" or off-site programs to meet their training needs. This may require sending members of an organization out of state for training. Assuming the training function is not internalized by the organization, and off-site training is therefore necessary, it is in the state of North Dakota's interests to actively seek ways to keep this off-site training in-state.
