OSHA 10 AND 30 HOURS

Wonder how important training is to the transportation industry? 

NICET (National Institute for Certification In Engineering Technologies) a division of the NSPE is the Global leader in providing recognition of qualified technology professionals who reliably apply engineering principles and practices for the benefit and safety of the public. TET is proud to be a NICET Recognized Training Provider.

Target Audience
Personnel from the following units at the transportation agency could benefit from this workshop: geotechnical, bridge design, roadway design, materials, construction, and maintenance. The personnel who will benefit the most are the first-line supervisors involved in the design of highway structures and embankments. The greatest impact will be achieved by convincing structural, design, and construction engineers to use procedures from this course as a guide for routine geotechnical work. All attendees should be encouraged to attend the entire course, not just sections that are in their specialty. One of the major benefits of this course is to give engineers an appreciation of activities outside their specialties that influence, or are influenced by, the work of the geotechnical engineer.

 Scope of Instruction
This course is geared toward practicing design and construction engineers who routinely deal with soil and foundation problems but have little theoretical background in soil mechanics or foundation engineering. The course takes a project-oriented approach whereby the soil input to a bridge project is followed from conception to completion. In each phase of the project, the soil concepts will be developed into specific foundation designs and recommendations. The classroom presentation includes a variety of exercises to verify achievement of learning objectives. Each participant will take away a comprehensive reference manual on soils and foundations and a participant workbook containing a copy of all slides presented and completed exercises.

 What learners can expect upon completion of the instructional session

  • Identifying the minimum level of geotechnical input in various project phases of a highway project
  • Recalling the equipment and procedures used to implement a subsurface investigation of soil and rock conditions
  • Demonstrating basic skills in visual description of soils native to the host state
  • Recalling geotechnical facilities and personnel in the host state
  • Recalling the basic soil test procedures and how the results of the various soil tests are applied results to highway projects & Listing procedures used for both settlement and stability analysis, and recalling design solutions to stability and settlement problems for approach roadway embankments
  • Live in-class settings through Mercer Co Community College
  • On site training at your company or facility 
  • Online workshops

Scope of Instruction
Construction of high quality asphalt pavements results in smoother, longer lasting roads and airfields. High quality pavements require that the inspectors and paving crew understand the basic principles and best practices of hot-mix asphalt pavement construction. The training covers the inspector's responsibilities at the various stages in the construction process along with quality assurance procedures. The student will develop a general understanding of hot-mix materials and production with details on the best practices for placement and compaction operations.

This training is arranged in a fashion to help the inspector and paving crew first learn the various aspects of what is involved in a HMA paving operation and then become familiar with the duties that are a part of the HMA pavement quality assurance process. The class explains how to recognizing problems during a project and offering solutions to the problems. This training is intended to cover the major aspects of HMA paving.

 What learners can expect upon completion of the instructional session:

  • Know various aspects of what is involved in a HMA paving operation
  • Understand the duties of a HMA paving inspector
  • Recognize the mix properties of a HMA mixture
  • Recognize the problems that may occur on HMA paving projects
  • Understand the product and project so solutions can be recommended
  • Understand quality control and quality assurance procedures
