WATERTOWN — The Watertown Department of Public Works announced that Anthony Iosa, mechanical equipment operator I in the highway division, has recently been awarded the University of Connecticut Road Master’s Certificate. Mr. Iosa has been with the town since 2007. The Connecticut Road Master Program is a series of workshops designed to provide Connecticut’s municipal highway personnel with knowledge of the fundamentals of modern road maintenance management procedures and techniques.

A properly maintained local road system is vital to the social, economic and environmental well-being of Connecticut’s municipalities.

Protecting and preserving this investment requires a force of municipal personnel with quality training in the fundamentals of road maintenance management procedures and techniques.

The Connecticut Road Master Program provides an opportunity for municipal road maintenance personnel to receive this specialized training. There are seven required workshops needed to complete the certification, including basics of a good road, asphalt pavements, principles of drainage, on-the-job safety and OSHA regulations, work zone safety, planning and managing local road snow and ice control activities and effective communication skills.

The Connecticut Road Master Certificate is awarded upon completion of at least nine workshops, seven that are required and two electives. 

 Those who complete the program are awarded the Connecticut Road Master Certificate.

The certificate is in recognition of a participant’s successful completion of the program and attests to his or her knowledge of the fundamentals of modern road management procedures and maintenance techniques.
