Cal State Long Beach Partners with Caltrans
Joint Training and Certification Program for Construction Projects Statewide


Caltrans and California State University, Long Beach's College of Engineering collaborated to establish the Joint Training and Certification Program to achieve consistent training and certification for technicians involved in the transportation construction industry in California.

Caltrans and California State University, Long Beach, announced in July a program that will increase quality and reduce delays on construction projects statewide. The Joint Training and Certification Program will offer courses on hot-mix asphalt, soils and aggregates, and Portland cement concrete.

Technicians earn certification by taking a prerequisite test in one area of specialization, followed by in-person class, laboratory and written/practical examination sessions. Caltrans, local agency and contractor personnel attend the same classes, work together and receive equivalent training and certification.

This practice fosters respect within the industry, while generating increased consistency. The JTCP also enables individuals and agencies to verify progress and certifications held by other individuals.

The in-person classes will be offered at CSULB and San Jose State University starting in December 2017.
