Technical Training and Certification Program logo

The Area Technical Training Teams (ATTTs) are an essential component of the Technical Training and Certification Strategy. The primary roles of the teams are to identify and prioritize local training needs, identify trainers, organize and coordinate local training delivery, and coordinate with other Area teams throughout the state to maximize training efficiencies. The teams are a front line training resource and are local champions of the Technical Training and Certification Program.
