How do I know which course to take?

The training you need should be determined by the work you will be doing. CTQP courses are set up to meet the needs of entry level personnel as well as those with more experience. In general, the Level 1 courses target those who will be performing tests in the field or in the lab. Practice sessions and proficiency exams are integral parts of these courses, as well as the written exam. The Level 2 courses develop knowledge in interpreting test results, comparing these with contract documents and enabling the technicians to make decisions in light of the specifications and contract documents. FDOT road and bridge specifications will specify what levels of training are required for each quality acceptance task.

Are exams administered in Spanish?

Exams are administered in English only.

Where can I check my exam score and/or print my certificate?
