My son will not stay asleep once he is put down in his bed. i have tried letting him cry it out for a few minutes and that doesn't work. does anyone have any ideas?

Try playing some gentle music in his room when you put him down. Start it rather quiet and increase the volume slowly until it's loud enough to cover the sounds of talking coming from another room.

usually he takes a nap in the morning and 1 in the afternoon. unless he is being held or in the car, he wakes up within 30 min. a longer nap is a rare one. i try to get him in bed at 8 since i work pt and get home around 5:30

The trick is to keep him busy all day long and tire him out. What time does he nap? For how long? What time do you try to put him down for bed?

How old is your son... crying it out takes a bit longer then "a few minutes" when my 10 month old is fighting his sleep. i check in on him every 15 minutes and he eventually just goes to sleep.
