The State of Alaska Local Training & Assistance Program (LTAP)

provides professional development opportunities to local governments, consultants, and construction companies conducting work on behalf of the State of Alaska Department of Transportation. LTAP centers help local agencies improve their roads and bridges by supplying them with various training programs, technology updates, newsletters, and personalized technical assistance.

Working in partnership with our Municipal and Rural Planning Organizations (MPOs & RPOs) and Alaskan consultants and contractors who have active State of Alaska projects, we strive to provide up-to-date training on relevant training opportunities. The mission of the Alaska LTAP is to create a more effective and diverse workforce by giving informational opportunities to all transportation partners.
