Idaho Transportation Department’s Resident Engineer Academy Goal: Educate Department personnel on an RE’s myriad responsibilities for the administration of construction contracts. The target audience is REs, their construction project managers and Construction Section associates. Courses were held in 2005, 2006 and 2007. Another will be held this year
The RE Academy is divided into four sessions. Three sessions take place one week per month for three successive months. Participants must attend all three sessions. The sessions are held at off-campus sites conducive to the intense training provided. Each session lasts from 1:00 PM on Monday until noon on Friday. The fourth session “Essential of Management” may be taken before or after the three session and is offered through the Human Resources Department.
The successive three sessions include role- playing, situational problem solving and other participatory activities gleaned from real experiences to keep attendees actively involved. Training staff support the subject matter experts and guest speakers who present the materials. All six assistant district engineers are presenters. The management session requires participants to take part in a number of activities that simulate duties that managers are expected to perform.
