COURSE OVERVIEW

Local Agencies must comply with Title VI and other Nondiscrimination Acts and the Americans with Disabilities Act. Oversight of the federally funded LAP program requires the Department to monitor participating Local Agencies’ compliance with these federal regulations. The course is divided into AM and PM sessions. If you plan on attending both, you will need to register for each session separately.

COURSE ATTENDANCE

Local Agency Title VI and ADA Coordinators are required to take this training once every three years for LAP Certification.  Local agency design project managers may attend the afternoon session to fulfill the ADA training requirements for LAP Certification.

Note: due to COVID-19 this virtual training session replaces the traditional in person training provided by the SCAT Team.  The virtual training will be recorded and posted to the Florida LTAP Center website.  Certificates are provided for attending either the live or recorded versions of this course.

🚩Please note – space for these webinars is limited, and Florida local agencies are being given first priority!
🚩Upon registering, your request will be submitted to the Florida LTAP Center for approval. You will receive an email in 3-5 business days regarding your registration status.
