Trainings & Workshops, Road Scholar Program
TTAP is proud to present a variety of training programs to meet the needs of tribal transportation agencies. Covering a wide variety of topics and interest areas, these programs provide learning opportunities not readily available anywhere else. CSU-TTAP will be happy to coordinate with any agencies and entities willing to sponsor a training event.
Tribal Road Scholar Program, Tribal Road Show Program, and Specialized Trainings are described below.
Tribal Road Scholar Program
The Road Scholar Program at CSU-TTAP has presented trainings since 1995. While it is not a degree or certification program in road technology, participants who want to increase their knowledge of local road maintenance procedures and improve their technical and managerial skills will attend an excellent basic program available nowhere else at such a low price.
The Tribal Roads Scholar Program consists of 15 different one- or two-day workshops that are offered through the TTAP. To become a Tribal Roads Scholar, you must attend at least nine of the 15 designated workshops. These workshops are held at several locations throughout Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and Utah. Upon successfully completing program requirements, participants will receive a plaque designating them a Tribal Roads Scholar.
Any road advisory committee member, road/street supervisor or foremen, public works person, maintenance person, equipment operator, road program or construction enterprise employee may become a Tribal Roads Scholar.
