A Training Advisory Committee (TAC) was established to discuss the status of the overall RTAP program and to identify training opportunities for eligible recipients in Arizona. The committee makes recommendations on strategies and activities that are part of the services provided through RTAP. Examples of items discussed are: online training, classroom training, methods to improve training, RTAP policies & procedures, training materials, and suggestions on how to meet training requirements statewide. The TAC provides this advice to the RTAP Manager responsible for managing the RTAP program.
