National Local Technical Assistance Program Association (NLTAPA)
APWA and the National Local Technical Assistance Program Association (NLTAPA) have a formal partnership for the purpose of fostering a safe, efficient, environmentally sound transportation system. Together our goal is to improve the skills and knowledge of local transportation providers through training, technical assistance, and technology transfer.
NLTAPA is a not-for-profit organization representing and serving the 52 LTAP and TTAP Member-Centers in the United States and Puerto Rico. The LTAP/TTAP Centers comprise an established network of transportation centers throughout the country with a mission of identifying and disseminating the latest in technology and training to local and tribal transportation policy makers and transportation professionals in the field. Primary areas of LTAP/TTAP service delivery are roadway safety, infrastructure management and maintenance, worker safety, workforce development and organizational excellence.
Each LTAP/T2 center has developed maintenance and operations training to best support the needs of their states. To find your local LTAP and see their training offerings, visit their website.
If you have a training need, please make sure to touch base with your LTAP Center and discuss.
NLTAPA has also developed a repository of over 100 Tailgate Talks, a great resource to utilize in your chapter education efforts and in your newsletters to the public works communities in your state.
