LocalGovU is an easy and free way to jumpstart your entity’s training initiatives.

Given the variety of courses offered within LocalGovU, you can build broad training curriculums that include courses all your entity’s employees should complete (Anti-harassment, cybersecurity, preventing accidents in the workplace, etc.) as well as specific training curriculums per department. 

For example, you can build a specific curriculum for your Highway Department by selecting courses in topics such as Roadway and Highway, Transit and Fleet Operations, and General Safety.
