Scheduled over several days in each location, classes with concentrated core curriculum provide opportunities for tribal transportation workers to delve into each topic, developing skills and knowledge in a compressed timeframe. The training schedule for in-classroom training ensures consistency across the regions while building technical capacity and offering cost effective strategies and solutions.

The TTAP Center’s injury prevention specialists bring these programs directly to tribal communities to deliver hands-on car seat safety training and safe seat belt use.
