HMA Level 3 Quality Control Manager Re-Certification

HIGHWAY

SCDOT

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 re-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 re-certification course includes a general overview as well as a review of all specification and procedural changes that may have occurred.  The instructors for the course are made up of experienced asphalt industry personnel, academia, and SCDOT experts.

Course Outline:
To become re-certified, 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:

  • Materials:
    • Aggregate
    • Asphalt Binder
  • SCDOT Mix Design Procedures and Related Calculations
  • Types of HMA Plants
  • Production Operations
  • SCDOT Plant Laboratory Testing Procedures and Related Calculations
  • Construction Operations
    • Preparation
    • Placement
    • Compaction
  • SCDOT In-Place Density Testing Procedures and Related Calculations
  • Troubleshooting
  • SCDOT Specifications

Entry Requirements/What to Expect:

Prerequisites:

  • Current HMA Level 3 QC Manager Certification

Frequency of Re-certification:
The certification period is five years.  It is the responsibility of the individual to keep track of his/her certification expiration date. 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.

Additional Information:
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.

Re-certification Date Policy (as of June 2005):
The SCDOT Technician Certification Board hereby requests that the certification expiration dates for re-certifications obtained within one year prior to the technician's original date of expiration be issued based on the original expiration date.  For example, if a technician's certification expires April 2006, and that technician passes a re-certification exam in April 2005, his/her certification will be extended five years from the original April 2006 date to April 2011.  However, if that technician chooses to attend a re-certification course in March 2005 and passes the exam, the re-certification will be valid from March 2005 to March 2010 (because the technician passed the exam outside of the one-year window).  If that technician does not obtain the re-certification before April 2006, then his/her certification expires on that date.
