The Maintenance Leadership Academy (MLA) provides an intensive training program to individuals who hold positions as State, district, and county maintenance supervisors, superintendents, and managers. The MLA is an investment in an employee's role as a leader and mentor that helps agencies become more efficient and innovative. The MLA decreases the time it takes to acclimate new managers, improves decision-making, and supports workforce development.
Participants acquire an understanding of the various processes, methods, and materials that are applied to maintain and preserve their organization's bridge and highway systems. Participants develop a knowledge base of planning, scheduling, quality control, customer focus, program presentation, asset management, pavement and bridge preservation, contract management, and performance improvement. Completion requirements include:
-Enroll and attend a 1-hour Orientation Web-conference
-Complete 16.75 hours of independent study via paper-based study and web-based training modules
-Attend 10.5 days of instructor-led, classroom training
See sample outcomes below for each of the six modules that comprise the MLA.
NOTE: Interested hosts should submit their course requests at least three-four months in advance of the desired start date. Contact NHI with any questions about the MLA course structure.
This course was designed for State, regional, or county personnel who manage highway maintenance programs and deal with oversight and quality assurance over broad geographic areas.
