MnDOT Technical Certification Classes
In light of the recent COVID-19 precautions, MnDOT has suspended all classes for the remainder of the 2019 training season. Your registrations will be cancelled and you will be refunded your full class fee. Please be patient as LSC works through the high volume of cancellations and refunds. We are doing our best to work quickly and efficiently during this uncertain time.
MnDOT is also coming up with a plan for those who need to re-certify their classes yet this spring. You will be notified once a plan has been implemented. Our online classes will stay open until April 30th – please consider taking one of our online re-certification classes if you need to re-certify in: Bit Plant 1, Concrete Field 1, Bituminous Street, Grading and Base 1, or Grading and Base 2. In the meantime, practice social distancing, personal hand washing hygiene and stay safe.
