Supervisory Skills and Development Program

$ New Low Rate $
What is the *NEW* SSDP registration fee?
Colorado LTAP has recently provided funding to subsidize cost of the program and is therefore able to offer each course at a new, low rate. The cost of each course is now only $75 per person, per class. The cost of each class includes room rental fees, instructor's fees, class materials, lunch, snacks, etc. Each participant also receives at their first class a SSDP binder. This notebook includes a check list of courses and dividers in order to include handouts from each class. It is intended for this notebook to serve as a reference manual after completion of the program.
Are there any grants or scholarships available?
APWA and CARSE may be providing scholarship money for Supervisory Skills courses in 2004. Please contact the Colorado LTAP office for more information.

Each course will be one 8-hour training session.

Each year, one half of the classes will be offered at varying locations on the Front Range, and in that same year, the other half of the classes will be held at varying locations on the Western Slope.
It IS possible to complete the program in one year if students are able to travel to both the Western Slope (WS) as well as the Front Range (FR) locations. Otherwise, it will take a minimum of two years for one region (FR or WS) to receive all nine courses.
The cost of each course will be $75 per person, per course. The cost of each class will include room rental fees, instructor's fees, class materials, lunch, snacks, etc.
Each participant will also receive at their first class, a Supervisory Skills and Development Program notebook. This notebook will include a check list of courses, and dividers in order to include handouts from each class. It is intended for this notebook to serve as a reference manual after completion of the course.
Due to the content of the material, class size is strictly limited. Initially, each agency will be limited to sending only 3 persons per class. Others will be added to an overflow list, with those participants added on a space available basis only.
Grants will be available through CLTAP and APWA to subsidize costs. Call CLTAP for info and apply early.
