LPA Certification/Training information

Special notice in regards to the LPA Training and the exam

The LPA Training scheduled at the DOT Headquarters for fall 2020 has been cancelled.


The date for the next LPA Training at the DOT Headquarters will be scheduled in 2021. Date to be determined.

In conjunction with the LPA Manual, the Bureau developed LPA Certification training. This mandatory training teaches the steps and procedures listed in the LPA Manual that a project sponsor and consultant are required to follow when implementing a project. The certification training is one full day and will follow the implementation of a project from inception to final inspection using the information found in the LPA Manual. Office of Federal Compliance, Labor Compliance training will be a separate ½ day training requirement, and a Labor Compliance Certificate will be mandatory to be fully certified for construction. In total, an LPA certified person will need 1½ days of training to oversee a project from inception through design and then construction.

Starting March 1, 2018 anyone who holds a current LPA certificate may request a test for recertification instead of attending the day long training. This test will cover all the material taught at the day long training. 32 correct answers out of 36 questions will be required to earn the LPA certification. Test will be emailed to you upon request as long as you hold a current LPA certificate and are seeking recertification. All the materials from the class will be available on our website for your use. The test is open book using the PowerPoints from the class and the LPA Manual. The test will be a fillable pdf form. When complete you will email the test back to the Department for scoring. If a passing grade is achieved a certificate will be emailed back to you for your records. If you do not pass you will be contacted with your score. You may take the test two times. If you do not pass the second time you will be required to attend the day long training. The test option will be available at any time and the day long class will be offered twice a year, spring and fall.
