Kansas Roads Scholar Program for Counties & Cities
A Training and Recognition Program
Anyone can benefit from professional and job skills development, and so do their employers. The Kansas Roads Scholar Program, for employees of public works agencies in local governments, is designed to do just that. The program enhances skills and knowledge of equipment operators as well as those who supervise others, or aspire to management in public works operations.
Training is provided by Kansas Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) and the Kansas Association of Counties (KAC). The Roads Scholar Program meets requirements for both county and city public works departments.

Safety Star Program
The Safety Star Program is a subset of the Kansas Roads Scholar curriculum designed to enhance student's knowledge of safety related basics. This program is intended for City Street Superintendents and County Road Supervisors but is open to any public works individuals interested in safety. The program is free but we do ask that interested parties register for attendance tracking purposes.
Classes are offered in an on-going basis all across the State. Upcoming LTAP classes and KAC Roads Scholar classes can be found on our calendar page.
Training is available across Kansas at a reasonable cost. Attendance is tracked and certificates are awarded to county participants by the Kansas County Highway Association for program completion and city participants by the APWA Kansas Chapter. Continuing education is required to maintain the certificate.
Members of the Kansas County Association Multiline Pool (KCAMP) are eligible for tuition reimbursement for Roads Scholar classes. KCAMP sets aside funds each year (based on member's annual contribution) from which they can reimburse up to $50 per person for each Roads Scholar class taken. Students do not need to be enrolled in any level of the Roads Scholar Program to qualify.
To request reimbursement, submit the application found here with proof of payment and your certificate of completion to Maura Chambers (email@example.com or fax to (785) 267-2383) before December 15th of each year.
