Are you a maintenance worker or supervisor with a local or state transportation or public works agency? Are you interested in expanding your knowledge of the latest innovations and best practices or enhancing your leadership skills? If so, then Minnesota LTAP's Roads Scholar Program is for you!

The program is designed to provide cost-effective training on a wide range of topics at locations that are convenient to you. Enrollment in the program is free, but there is a small charge to attend individual workshops. Classes are offered across Minnesota to make the program easily accessible to most local agencies.

The Roads Scholar Program includes two certificates: one focused on general maintenance operations and one focused on leadership and management. The curriculum is designed to provide participants with fundamental training in safety, management, and advanced technologies, as well as offer exposure to other topics relevant to the transportation field.

Maintenance Operations and Technical Certificate

This certificate gives local transportation personnel the opportunity to improve their road and bridge maintenance skills. You'll learn proven techniques as well as how the latest technologies and innovations can be applied to your particular maintenance problems.

To earn your certificate, you must earn eight credits within five years from available LTAP courses.

Leadership, Supervisory, and Operations Management Certificate

This new certificate is an ideal option for new managers, supervisors and those transitioning into a leadership role. Courses focus on the management of local agency and public works organizations and operations.

To earn your certificate, you must complete four designated LTAP leadership courses.
