CDOT/ACPA Concrete Pavement Inspector Certification Program

ACPA has partnered with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) to provide a certification program for concrete pavement inspectors.  

Since 2006, any person who inspects concrete pavement on CDOT projects or projects using CDOT specifications, has been required to hold a construction inspector certification. An inspector’s thorough understanding of concrete pavement and the specific construction processes required for concrete applications can lead to increased quality and efficiencies in schedule at a project site. The course also provides guidance on completing the required CDOT forms for documentation on a project.

Although CDOT appears in the course title, interested participants need not be affiliated with CDOT projects to take this course and earn the certification. By opening the class to all inspectors, ACPA hopes to increase the understanding of concrete paving best practices.
Course curriculum will include topics such as:

  • Concrete mix designs
  • Documenting field testing
  • Concrete batch plants and tickets
  • Concrete pavement design basics
  • Subgrade preparation
  • Paving equipment
  • Pavement placement, finishing & joints
  • Repairs and replacement

Registration for classes is available in the Event Registration section of the website, and questions about the class can be directed to Sarah Dalton.
