Course Description
The HMA Quality Manager Course is intended to assure the ability to trouble-shoot and solve problems when monitoring HMA mix design, production, placement, compaction and testing.  Individuals who complete this course will be certified to perform HMA Level 3 Quality Control Manager duties for SCDOT projects.  In addition, any person maintaining a current HMA Level 3 QC Manager Certification (also known as HMA 1-2-3-ART Certification) will not be required to re-certify at the other levels of HMA certification.  The course is held in a classroom setting with no laboratory sessions.  In addition to trouble-shooting, participants are expected to perform calculations related to HMA job mix preparation, production, quality control testing, placement, and compaction.  The instructors for the course are made up of experienced asphalt industry personnel, academia, and SCDOT experts.

Participants are required to attend a three-and-a-half (3 ½) day course and pass a written exam with a score of 85% or higher to become certified.  The exam is open book and open notes.  Topics covered include:

Re-certification Requirements
To become re-certified, the participant must attend a three-and-a-half (3 ½) day course and pass a written exam with a score of 85% or higher.  The re-certification course will contain the same information as the regular certification course in addition to any specification and procedural changes that may have occurred.  Any person maintaining a current HMA Quality Control Manager Certification (also known as HMA 1-2-3-ART Certification) will not be required to re-certify at the other levels of HMA certification.

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, attending the re-certification course, and passing the written exam with a score of 85% or higher.
