FHWA has developed an online training course to provide an overview of the HSM:

The Highway Safety Manual (HSM) Online Overview (FHWA-NHI-380106) is now available free of charge through the National Highway Institute (NHI) website. This course consists of thirteen self-paced informational modules that can be taken in any order depending on the student’s prior knowledge level, interest and time available. The course includes an introduction of HSM terminology, examples of the Roadway Safety Management Process (HSM Part B) and Predictive Methods (HSM Part C), explains the relationship of Crash Modification Factors (CMFs) to decision making and quantitative safety analysis, and human factors.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
• Identify the parts of HSM and what they are used for.
• Explain the overall concepts and principles promoted in the HSM for safety decision making.
• Recognize the benefits of using a quantitative safety analysis in various stages of the transportation project development process
