The technician training program works closely with ARDOT and the highway construction
industry to provide necessary training and certification. Approximately half of CTTP
participants are ARDOT employees, while the remainder is comprised of personnel from
more than 120 private construction firms representing seven states.
One of the greatest successes of the CTTP program is that agency and contractor personnel
attend the same classes, work together, and receive equivalent training. This practice
has fostered a greater respect within the industry, while generating increased consistency
in laboratory practices.
