Meeting local needs for training, technical assistance, and research in transportation

Road Scholar I Session

The Level One: Technical Skills Program enhances the knowledge of general public works maintenance and construction methods, safety practices, and how local government is organized and operated as it applies to quality public service.

A certificate is awarded to an individual who participates and passes all required courses for the level. A person can be enrolled in more than one level at the same time, if desired. In general, a certificate must be earned for the preceding level in order to obtain a certificate at the next level. Courses may be taken in any order, at any time. Individuals with more than 5 years of public works experience may choose to skip Level One and proceed to Level Two, with supervisor approval. Please submit a request to the Kansas LTAP at kutc_training@ku.edu.
