“Introduction to PC/OA (PC = Process Control, OA =- Owners Acceptance) Testing” is an introductory course designed to teach current CDOT / AASHTO test procedures used in the quality control and quality assurance of asphalt materials, and in the placement of asphalt pavement. This training is useful for both entry level technicians who are preparing for asphalt technician certification, as well as for more seasoned technicians who may be re-entering the testing arena. Inspectors and Engineers who desire more knowledge about testing procedures, how they are to be carried out during a paving project, and basic information on how the test results may affect the quality of the pavement, will also benifit from this couse.
This course held in conjunction with the LabCAT Inspector Certification Program covers Inspection Elements; Specifications, Surface Preparation for Asphalt, Materials Transfer Vehicles, Sampling of Asphalt Mixtures, Paving Operations, Compaction, High Speed Profiler and a brief overview of Mat Defects. Participants will be dismissed prior to the certification written exam.
