Thursday, November 19, 2020
From the NDDOT and SDDOT: Due to impacts of the COVID pandemic, the NDDOT and SDDOT have elected to convert all training and certification testing for the QC/QA Bituminous Certification Program including written certification testing and laboratory proficiency testing to remote/virtual means for 2020-2021 training season. Information will be forthcoming shortly documenting the necessary resources, layout and registration periods and virtual sessions for the classes listed as follows:
Introduction to Asphalt
Pavement (Roadway) Inspection
Asphalt (Hot) Mix Testing
Certification Renewal Classes (NDDOT)
Recertification classes for the SDDOT have already been posted for online/virtual instruction and testing and are available through the SDDOT web site and shortly through a link on the DAPA web page. The Asphalt Mix Controller (Production and Mix Control) course is still scheduled as a conventional course/certification for late March/April 2021 but is under consideration for conversion is well depending on the impacts of the pandemic and restrictions in place under CDC guidelines.
