HIGHWAY

SCDOT

Course Description
The Coarse Aggregate (CA) Level 1: Sampling and Grading Course is intended to assure competency in issues affecting QC/QA for aggregate suppliers. Individuals who complete the course will be re-certified to perform CA Level 1 Technician duties including field sampling, sample reduction, and grading. 

Course Outline
There is no instruction included in this course.  To become re-certified, participants must pass a written exam (open book and open notes) administered at the course site with a score of 80% or higher.  Upon registration AND payment for the course, each participant will be sent a course manual to be used for the exam. 

Entry Requirements/What to Expect

Prerequisites

  • Current Coarse Aggregate Level 1 Sampling and Grading Technician Certification
  • Experience Form (sections 2 and 3 only)
    • Section 2 must be signed by a certified Coarse Aggregate Level 2 Testing Technician from a different employer than themselves confirming that the participant has aptly demonstrated the following required procedures to them:
      • Sampling of Aggregates (AASHTO T 2)
      • Reducing Samples of Aggregate to Testing Size (AASHTO T 248)
      • Sieve Analysis of Fine and Coarse Aggregates (AASHTO T 27)

Additional Registration Information
If registration information and payment for the course are not received at least 14 days prior to the course start date, the participant will not receive a course manual and will be dropped from the course. If the registrant provides an incorrect mailing address and the manual has to be re-shipped, a $10.00 processing and handling fee will be charged.

Course Materials
Electronic versions of the course materials are available below.  However, course materials can be updated at any time, and these electronic materials may not be the most updated version.  The most updated version of the course materials are mailed to all course registrants upon submission of all required registration items and payment.

Frequency of Re-certification
The certification period is five years. An individual will be informed, by way of a letter mailed to the technician's last address of record, when the certification period is nearing the expiration date. If the technician was last registered for certification by his/her employer, the last address of record may be the employer's address. However, it is the responsibility of the individual to keep Tri-County Technical College and the Technician Certification Board advised of his/her current address. The individual is also responsible for registering for the re-certification course and passing the written exam with a score of 80% or higher.
