Training is provided by the 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.

Application Fee

A one-time non-refundable application fee of $35 is required for each program level. The fee provides funds to monitor the progress of each individual involved in each program.

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.

There are two ways to register: online here, or you can print and mail in the program application found here.

Class Availability

Classes are offered in an on-going basis all across the State. Current class information can be found on our online training page.  Click here.

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.
