Local Assistance Training

Caltrans Division of Local Assistance offers training classes for local agencies through the Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) and with funds from the Cooperative Training Assistance Program (CTAP).  These classes assist local agencies with the federal-aid process, as well as infrastructure management, worker and work site  safety, and workforce development.  Caltrans currently partners with two universities to provide local agencies with this training.

Sacramento State, College of Continuing Education, manages California’s LTAP center, in partnership with Caltrans.  The LTAP Center offers classes for local agencies on the federal-aid process (Federal Aid Series, Resident Engineers Academy, A&E Consultant Procurement). These classes are primarily taught by current and former Caltrans employees and provide in-depth details on participating in federal-aid from cradle to grave.

UC Berkeley, Institute of Transportation Studies, Tech Transfer offers subsidized classes for Caltrans for local agencies in infrastructure management, worker and work site safety, and workforce development.
