The Metro Leadership Academy is an annual program offered by LA metro in cooperation with a local community college. Because colleges are entirely dedicated to teaching, they usually have more preexisting infrastructure and expertise in putting together and teaching courses than any transit agency. For this reason, it is often more efficient for an agency like LA Metro to collaborate with a local college than it would be for them to simply offer the course on their own. The Metro Leadership Academy teaches leadership skills to 40 candidates during each yearlong session, providing these candidates with an opportunity for future promotions.
