Construction Management Academy 
KYTC has long addressed technical issues with various courses, but has in the last few years put more emphasis on it leadership.  As mentioned by FHWA, the Cabinet has a history of mentoring to train project engineers in their trade with many engineers being in the construction crews as EIT’s before they become the project engineer of a crew.  The CMA’s intent is to educate a project engineer on his/her responsibilities as the supervisor of a construction crew in the District and as the Project Engineer of record of a construction project.
KYTC’s training will encompass 6 days of course work to be given at 2 days per month for a 3 month period.  Thus a class offering of twice a year with a class size is 18 individuals.  It is expected that the course would be taught regularly.  Course instructors would be from all Divisions and District of the Cabinet as well as ‘outside’ the Cabinet such as FHWA and KAHC.
