Full course description

Course Introduction:
Rural Missourians face transportation barriers that limit fullness of life and basic needs such as health, food, education, employment and social interaction. Because transportation is tangled, complicated and expensive, though identified as one of the top two barriers in communities across Missouri, it is not addressed.
 
The purpose of this course is to provide Mobility Management trainees the skills, knowledge, and resources that will improve transportation access for Missourians who have the greatest need. Upon completion of the course the trainee will be able to identify their community’s transportation resources and barriers, communicate with others using non-biased language, collaborate effectively, identify funding resources to assist consumers with transportation cost, and identify requirements and restrictions of funding for consumers. Additionally, trainees will create their own National, State, and Local Mobility Management Resources Toolkit that is focused on the trainee’s community of service.
 
Throughout the course, Mobility Management trainees will explore transportation resources and gaps through the lens of Context, Community, Consumers, Providers, Partnerships, Advocacy, and Assistance Programs. Each module introduces the trainee to a specific aspect of mobility management that is necessary for the trainee’s future success in their local community as a Mobility Manager. For example, Module 1 focuses on defining Mobility Management in the context of the local community. Context is a vital component of successful mobility management because no two communities will have exactly the same transportation resources or needs (gaps).
