Project 14.3
North/West Passage Workforce Needs – Practices and Peer Exchange

State departments of transportation are experiencing changes in workforce needs resulting from the impacts of new and evolving technologies, staff turnover, and retirements and have a need to grow and develop the maintenance and operations workforce. With increasing systems and technology there are challenges in training staff. Many personnel systems were established with an engineering layer but do not include a technical layer. In some situations, degree requirements and licensing for job positions eliminates job applicants.

This project documented workforce practices from NWP member states gathered through phone interviews and information shared during a peer exchange webinar.
