The Oregon Department of Transportation Construction Section sponsors training and certification programs for technicians, inspectors and laboratories working on ODOT construction projects. Some courses are provided by organizations other than ODOT. Course descriptions are noted below under "Certification Training."
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we will conduct limited in-person Construction inspection training, workshops, or forums in the 2020-2021 season.
Class availability is subject to change as the COVID-19 directives from the governor's office allow. Some virtual and/or online sessions will be offered as well. Check our most recent class status schedule
for class and online training information and links to iLearn to register.
Construction material technician training will continue with cooperation with our Industry Partners. For information, visit APAO
websites for current enrollment details.
Options for inspector certifications are being researched and developed. Our primary goal is to craft a training plan and implement it by January 1, 2021. This will include a process for new and currently certified inspectors to obtain a 1-year certification. An additional goal is to create challenge exam events to extend certifications for the fully allotted time designated for each specific discipline. We will update the challenge events calendar after January 1, 2021.
