The Idaho Road Scholar Program is a way for local road professionals in our state to be recognized for successfully completing a series of training courses. The program curriculum is designed to provide participants with the fundamentals of safety, management, and advanced technologies, as well as exposure to a wide variety of other topics relevant to the transportation field. Through this program, the local agencies will also be provided an opportunity to develop the agencies’ greatest asset – its employees.
The cities, counties and highway districts are responsible for the majority of roads within the state of Idaho — over 32,000 miles of highways, roads and streets. These highways, roads and streets are seeing an ever-increasing traffic demand. With the increased demand and new technologies comes the need for more diverse skills and knowledge necessary for maintenance and preservation activities on the roadways. The transportation professionals that are constructing and maintaining these roadways need to be recognized for their efforts at keeping up-to-date on the new technologies and skills required to construct and maintain effective highway systems.
Leadership Development Program
The LHTAC Council and T2 Advisory Board have moved forward with developing a new training program within the T2 Center. The Leadership Development Program is aimed at emerging leaders within the local agencies. These leaders can be at any level from road crewman, to clerks, to crew chiefs to supervisors. The program does not have prerequisites from the other two T2 Programs – Road Scholar and Road Master; it is a standalone program.
The classes in the Leadership Development Program can be found on the schedule titled:
LHTAC plans to develop two additional courses in the near future. One will focus on teambuilding and the other will focus on bridging the generational gap.
It is recommended that students take the Transition to Leadership course first, however, you can take them in any order if desired.
You will be officially enrolled in the program once you have attended your first course. Then you will have four years to complete the course requirements for the Road Scholar Level I. Once you have completed Level I you can choose to participate in the Road Master Level II. You will then have another four years to complete Level II.
Level I consists of seven core classes and four electives. The classes include classroom work, field work, an occasional field trip, and a competency exam. Passing exams (80% or greater) on the core classes will qualify the participant to be classified a ROAD SCHOLAR. Successful Road Scholars will be recognized statewide for their accomplishment and will receive a certificate of completion along with an achievement award.

After completing Level I, Level II consists of four core classes and five electives. The classes will include classroom work, field work, an occasional field trip and a competency exam.
