  2. Solicitation Documents and Advertisement – online now
  3. Evaluation and Selection of Consultant – online now

This online training is adapted from the 8-hour classroom training offered by Caltrans Local Assistance and the Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) Center. The move to online training modules allows the viewer to focus on the complete process or the individual step of immediate concern, at their convenience. These modules range from .5 hours to 1.5 hours based on complexity of step.

The 8-hour classroom training will still be available periodically.
