Technician and Inspector Certification Program

The purpose of the West Virginia Division of Highways (WVDOH) Technician and Inspector Certification Program is to improve the quality assurance of Embankments, Subgrades, Base Course, Asphalt and Portland Cement Concrete by the certification of industry and Division of Highways personnel. The Division first started this program in 1965 and currently has approximately 1636 Technicians / Inspectors certified to date.

It is the Division's intent to conduct a cooperative program of training, study, and examination so that personnel of the producer, contractor, and the Division of Highways will be able to better assure, by their increased technical knowledge, the level of quality required by the governing specifications.

The purpose of the schools is to provide helpful information and instruction for persons preparing to take the technician/inspector examinations. These courses are designed to provide instruction for persons with a basic foundation in the subject matter.

The following disciplines except the Aggregate Sampling Inspector have a 3-4 day class held at Cedar Lakes. The first written examination for the calendar year is given on the day after the last day of class. To pass the written examination, the applicant must obtain a score of at least 70 percent. There will be two written examinations per certification topic each year prior to May.
