Drilled Shaft Inspector Certification
Introduction

 
Below is the list of materials used during the training session. These materials are necessary for taking the Drilled Shaft Foundation Inspector Certification exam.
 
Hyperlinks are provided to take you to the PDF versions of the documents.
 
File sizes are listed after the title. As you can see, the complete manual is very large. The entire manual will take a longer time for your computer to open and print because of its size. Each chapter is also available if you prefer to open smaller individual files. There is no fee to print copies of any part of these manuals from your computer. 
 

If you have questions about the Inspector Quality Assurance Program, training, or challenging any of the Inspector Certification exams, contact Lori Butler by e-mail at lorraine.e.butler@odot.state.or.us or by phone at (503) 986-3007.
