Active list: Qualified Cultural Resources Consultants -Updated 10/9/2020
Qualified Cultural Resources Consultants have completed required training, within the past two years, certifying the consultant to provide cultural resource documentation for ODOT's Statewide Transportation Improvement Projects or other projects using federal funding.
Important changes to ODOT Cultural Resources Consultant Qualification Program:
Only consulting firms with staff who meet the minimum ODOT cultural resources qualifications, complete the ODOT training, and pass the test will be considered qualified for ODOT cultural resources work.
We have changed our requirements so that each firm conducting cultural resource work for ODOT must have at least one staff person currently certified through the ODOT qualification program for the technical discipline of the work (archaeology or historic built environment).
Consultant firms that intend to perform both archaeological and built environment tasks for ODOT are required to have at least one archaeologist and one historian qualified by ODOT. The expectation is that qualified staff will oversee and review all cultural work performed on ODOT contracts.
This ODOT cultural resources qualification requirement is effective immediately for new consultants. Currently qualified consultants have until the end of June 2019 to requalify.
Initial qualification status is valid for three-years (no longer two years) after which ODOT requires renewal. Each renewed qualification is also valid for three years.
ODOT has developed web-based cultural resources qualification training to replace the previous face-to-face training. The ODOT web-based qualification training is now available at https://ilearn.oregon.gov Please search using ODOT Cultural Resources Qualification Training-Archaeology or Historic Curriculum.
