Iowa LTAP is happy to announce a temporary September to December 2020 program of limited single agency-hosted on-site on-call trainings. These trainings will be initiated by the local agency hosts that request it at their location (please call or email Paul Albritton, 515-294-1231, Local hosts and attendees will have to comply with a list of safety responsibilities (or their local requirements if they are more strict) that we will share with you when you call/email to take advantage of this program. The current list of responsibilities can be accessed here. Instructors will also have to comply with a series of requirements that we’ll explain.

These trainings will be limited to attendees from the host agency only (or possibly one other if agreed to by both agencies and LTAP). Attendance will be limited to 10 to 15 people.
