Program Description- 

Each class is in two parts, an online and a in-person. Please make note of corresponding dates below.

 

These workshops offer a specialized certification program emphasizing Wyoming DOT specifications 
and procedures. The intentions of the workshops are a review of materials and processes to obtain 
certification and are not introductory training courses. All instruction is online through Zoom. Wyoming T2 Center administers all written tests through an  online test-taking platform. The certification consists of online classroom sessions covering material-specific information,  demonstrations, and a review of testing procedures. The successful completion will fulfill the testing technician certification requirements for Wyoming DOT QC/QA projects. WYDOT issues a certificate 
upon successfully passing both the online written test and the performance test. Wyoming DOT QC/QA projects require that testing technicians be certified for asphalt and concrete projects. All three certifications are good for 5 years.

 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?-


People requiring the qualifications for conducting or overseeing materials testing on Wyoming DOT
QC/QA projects are encouraged to apply.
