Programs

Construction Inspector Certification Program

This program was created by CDOT in 2004 to develop a qualified inspection staff in order to obtain a higher-quality end product on the highway.

There are three categories of inspection training that have been developed:

  • basic highway math
  • basic construction surveying
  • basic highway plan reading

All construction inspectors—whether from CDOT or a consultant—must demonstrate proficiency by passing an exam and earning certification within the developed categories. CDOT has developed self-study manuals for four of the entry-level certification courses. 

The cost for each test is $25, payable by check ONLY. Fees must be paid to the examiner the day of the exam to be eligible to take the test(s).
