Our primary service is training. We are on the road with our workshops, traveling all over New York State each year. We schedule the majority of our training sessions in the spring, from late March through May, and in the fall during the months of September and October.
This Spring, the New York State LTAP Center - Cornell Local Roads Program will be hosting our in-person workshops “regionally.” This means our staff will be located at one training facility for a week, hosting up to three different workshops in the same location.
This regional approach allows you the opportunity to attend multiple different workshops in the same location over the course of a single week. If you or your staff are in the area – this is a great opportunity to learn about several subjects over a short, convenient period. Take a look at the regional workshop schedule below and sign up today!

Health & Safety Protocols for In-Person Workshops
With the aim of keeping everyone safe during the pandemic, and in accordance with Cornell University approved guidelines, we have enacted new procedures both for CLRP staff and workshop attendees.
Workshop participants will be subject to a health check upon arrival at the workshop encompassing:
- Temperature check with a no-touch thermometer – We will not keep a record of a participant’s temperature, but if it is over 100 degrees, s/he will not be allowed to attend the workshop.
- Health Questions – CLRP Staff will ask each participant a series of simple heath related questions before allowing entry into the classroom. These will be sent ahead of time.
- Participants must be in compliance with NYS out of state travel and quarantine rules. For a list of states, go to: https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/covid-19-travel-advisory.
Everyone in the workshop must properly wear a mask. CLRP will have extras available.
CLRP will provide hand sanitizer for participants to use before entering the workshop and after breaks.
CLRP staff will sanitize commonly touched objects.
Tables and chairs will be spaced six feet apart and participants are asked to maintain a six foot distance between each other as well as the instructor.
If any attendee, instructor, or facilitator tests positive for COVID-19 within seven days after the workshop they are to inform CLRP immediately. CLRP can then inform attendees, staff at the facility, instructors, and facilitators to get tested, initiate contact tracing and quarantine as required by NYS DOH rules. We will not release the names of anyone who tests positive without permission and guidance from the local county health department.
