Description

The Locally Administered Project Qualification Program is broken in to two courses, each with a series of online modules. The first course is Program Development and the second course is Project Management.

The Program Development series of modules will be helpful to LPAs in understanding VDOT’s approach to locally administered projects. The modules in this section are focused on overall program development that addresses roles and responsibilities, qualifications, and project initiation and details requirements for federal-funded projects.

The Project Management series of modules is focused on project management and provides guidance for project development and construction. These modules also address standards and practices for functional areas that cut across phases of project delivery including: civil rights, environmental, right of way, and financial management.

Please note: All Program Development and Project Management modules include online components that must be completed prior to attending the in-person Project Management classroom session. Instructions for accessing online materials will be provided to you by email.
