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 Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to monitor participating Local Agencies’ compliance with these federal regulations. The course is divided into AM and PM sessions.

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.
