CAWV / WVDOH 2018 Technician and Inspector Courses


The CAWV is pleased to announce that due to demand a second set of Technician Certification Training Courses has been added to the training schedule. The courses, which are offered annually to help individuals prepare for WVDOH certification examinations required under their Quality Assurance Program, have seen greater demand this year due to the passage of the “Roads to Prosperity Bond Amendment”. Thousands of individuals have attended courses in Compaction, Aggregates, Asphalt and Portland Cement Concrete over the last several years. Test comparisons prove that those persons who attend the CAWV/WVDOH courses have a higher success rate for passing the exams.


* New for 2018: All certification testing has been moved to an online format that will require the attendee to have a laptop, tablet or iPad type device to take the test. The use of smart phones during the test is prohibited.
