Online Training Courses

Due to COVID-19, all in-person courses have been postponed. To continue to provide you with quality training with your safety in mind, we are offering online, instructor-led courses through the Zoom platform. Participants are able to interact with the instructor and other participants. We are offering a wide range of courses from an hour to six hours depending on the topic.

These courses can be accessed at home, the office, or wherever your job takes you. Take a moment to check out our current list of courses below, DLG requirements, and some helpful tips on getting started with Zoom:

DLG Requirements

The Technology Transfer Program (T2) at UK, in agreement, with the Department of Local Governments (DLG) will provide first-rate educational opportunities for elected officials. T2 has outlined the DLG requirements below for those elected officials needing GOLD hours. Those T2 approved courses are listed under the Local Officials Training Program.

  • The webinar must be live.
  • You must have your webcam on during the entire webinar.
  • You will only receive credit for the amount of time you are on the live webinar.

We are offering a variety of training styles to fit the course materials and participants. In some training courses, there is pre-work and field work that are done outside of regular training hours. Under DLG guidance, you will only receive credit hours for the time that you participate in-person (live with video streaming), so the pre-work and field work are optional for DLG credit. However, we encourage you to participate in these activities as they are essential for your roadways, and they will help you better prepare for the webinar. This option is only provided to elected officials under the DLG umbrella for training.
