Disadvantaged Business Enterprise
DBE Small Enterprise Training (SET)
SET's goal is to assist ODOT's certified Disadvantaged Businesses Enterprises (DBEs) and other small businesses currently involved in or interested in expanding their operations in the road construction industry. These workshops will help to increase the participants' business expertise and their capacity to acquire and perform contracts both in the public and private sector. The training program will include technical subjects such as bidding and estimating costs in addition to business skills like networking and using social media as an outreach tool.
Contractor Compliance Program
Transportation Assistance Program (TAP)
The Outreach program "Transportation Assistance Program" (TAP) is designed to eliminate barriers in the transportation industry and encourage individuals from under-represented groups to apply for training. ODOT will provide weekly certification training opportunities throughout the year to help make individuals more employable. Training will be offered and funded for minority and female participants seeking employment in the construction trade industry.
This training will be offered for one week at multiple locations throughout Oklahoma. The series of 4 modules is designed to prepare individuals in entry level training for Labor, Trades and Crafts for persons interested in obtaining work in highway construction industry. The training does not require any prior construction experience and is intended to provide an overview of transportation construction work and prepare the student for entry level work in transportation construction projects. If you have questions contact the Civil Rights Division at 405-521-3186.
