Delaware Department of Transportation Reorganization/Soft Skills Workshop Project

The purpose of the DelDOT Reorganization/Soft Skills Workshop project is to craft a training curriculum for DelDOT employees that conveys the competencies required of the modern transportation professional, thereby eliminating the lack of organization and comprehensiveness in employee training from which the department currently suffers. The goals of the project are to research the field of transportation engineering so as to determine these competencies, to identify the strengths and weaknesses of DelDOT's current training program, and to use this knowledge base in preparing an employee curriculum that fulfills the department's professional development needs. In accomplishing these goals, DelDOT will have the benefit of a strategic plan for the development of engineers that will assure employees and managers that appropriate professional development opportunities are available as needed.
