COURSE DESCRIPTION:

The Maintenance Leadership Academy provides an intensive training program to individuals who hold positions as State, district, and county maintenance supervisors. The Academy assists departments that are experiencing high turnover rates and want to decrease the time for acclimating new managers. The training provides an opportunity for career development, highlighting new technologies in the field of maintenance and the exchange of best practices.

Participants acquire an understanding of the various processes, methods, and materials that are applied to maintain their organization's bridge and highway systems. Participants develop a knowledge base of personnel management, materials selection, equipment use, and applicable methods to react to problems in bridges, roadways, budgeting, and planning.

The Academy curriculum consists of self-paced lessons accessed via the Web and classroom sessions. Self-paced lessons are completed prior to attending each of the two classroom sessions. Upon enrolling for the Maintenance Leadership Academy, participants attend a 1-hour orientation Web conference that provides an overview of the Academy's schedule and information on how to access the self-paced lessons.

An example schedule for the Academy is as follows:

- Week 1: Participants enroll and attend a 1-hour Web conference orientation

- Weeks 2-3: Participants complete 22 hours of independent study materials

- Weeks 4-5: Participants attend 8 days of classroom training

- Weeks 6-7: Participants complete 10.5 hours of independent study material and attend a 1-hour homework review Web conference

- Week 8: Participants attend 4 days of classroom training
