The Municipal Training Academy (MTA), introduced in the Fall of 1992, is an educational division of the Miami Valley Communications Council. The goal is to provide municipal employees and elected officials an opportunity to strengthen their skills through customized training and development courses at minimal cost.

The concept for the academy was initiated by the Council's Gov-Tech Committee. The committee, comprised of city managers of the Council's member cities, agreed the academy would be designed to accommodate all levels of employees as well as elected and appointed officials, by offering many diverse educational programs.

The Municipal Training Academy Committee was appointed to research, develop and recommend a broad range of educational opportunities using local resources. An employee needs assessment was conducted to further define training needs. The results play an important role in the on-going development of the Academy's customized training.

Recent training programs have focused on customer service, improving supervisory and leadership skills, comprehensive OSHA and safety compliance programs, seminars for newly elected officials, ethics in government, computer training as well as seminars dealing with the most recent state and federal requirements effecting local government operations.
