Training and qualification
Local Government Projects Program
All local entities are required to have an individual qualified by TxDOT in Local Government Project Procedures assigned to each project being performed through an Advanced Funding Agreement. Through its Local Government Project Procedures Qualification Program, TxDOT offers a course that trains and qualifies individuals to work on these projects. Anyone working directly on or overseeing local government projects, including senior managers, project managers, consultants, and local government employees, is encouraged to complete this training. TxDOT requires all "qualified" persons to successfully complete the LGPP qualification course at least once every three years.
The class takes a total of 12 hours and covers several topics:
- Introduction to the Qualification Program.
- Applicable federal and state laws and regulations.
- Typical TxDOT/local government contract terms.
- The project development process; contract execution through project close-out.
- Available tools and resources.
Note: Participants who are local to the AUS, ELP, DAL, FTW, HOU, SAT, and PHR district offices are strongly encouraged to register for an in-person session. Participants requesting enrollment for a virtual session will be processed on a first-come, first-serve basis and enrolled in the earliest available session. All LGP101 classes have a max seat count of 28.
