Canvas is a modern educational platform that supports a deep focus on teaching and learning. The robust features of Canvas help to enhance teaching and learning beyond the physical classroom.

All participants must register and use a unique email address (i.e. is not shared with other people) when accessing our Learning Management System (LMS).

If taking a Canvas course on the computer, please DO NOT use Internet Explorer. I would suggest using Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.

Course Format

This course contains prerecorded PowerPoint presentations and knowledge check quizzes. In order to advance through the modules, you must successfully complete all modules by watching the recorded PowerPoint presentations and answering the knowledge check quizzes.

If you cancel, substitute, or transfer to a new course you will be required to resubmit all prework for the new training date.


Below outlines the class format for each of the qualification courses being offered by the KY LTAP. Depending on the instructor, some of our training programs will be split between our live Zoom instructor-led platform and our LMS.
