The three-day certification training is conducted by DOT instructors, with the proctored test administered on the third day. The training takes place during the construction materials and methods class, which is part of the curriculum for students in the civil engineering technology AAS (associate’s in applied science degree) diploma and certificate programs. The civil engineering technology curriculum is a course of study that prepares students to use basic engineering principles and technical skills to carry out planning, documenting and supervising tasks in sustainable land development and public works and facilities projects. It includes instruction in the communication and computational skills required for materials testing, structural testing, field and laboratory testing, site analysis, estimating, project management, plan preparation, hydraulics, environmental technology and surveying.
The concrete field-testing technician certification prepares students to be employed in concrete materials-testing with many organizations, both public and private. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of concrete field-testing technicians, as well as other civil engineering technicians, is projected to grow nine percent by 2026, as fast as the average for all occupations. This is due in large part to the increasing need to preserve, repair, upgrade and enhance the country’s infrastructure, according to Scotty Brooks, chairman of the college’s civil engineering technology department.
“The materials-testing industry is in great need for qualified persons,” said Brooks recently. “Having this industry-accepted certification can set our students on a career path toward a stable, in-demand profession.”
