We provide workshops and training events, how-to manuals, expert advice, legislative and regulatory news, and on-site technical assistance. Our partnerships with the Federal Highway Administration, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and a network of Local Technical Assistance Programs (LTAP) located throughout the nation enables T2 to quickly deliver cost-effective, practical solutions to real transportation problems. We are the LTAP Center in Kentucky.

Additional Pesticide Training & Testing Dates Added
Kentucky law requires that anyone spraying Pesticides be licensed to do so. To prepare workers to take the certification exam, we provide six hours of instruction, and at the completion of the training, the Department of Agriculture administers the exam. With the material fresh in their minds, 90 percent of workers pass the exam the first time. Training is available for the following categories:

Category 3: Ornamental and Lawn Care
Category 5: Aquatic Pest Control
Category 6: Right-of-Way Pest Control

T2 has added two more Training & Testing dates to our calendar:

February 27 - Barren River State Resort Park. Lucas
March 6 - Natural Bridge State Resort Park, Slade
