Local governments bear responsibility for over 80% of the pavement lane-miles in California, which carry 45% of the state’s vehicle miles traveled. Unfortunately, the condition of California’s pavement has worsened over the past 10 years. Recent legislation brings much needed funding to local governments for preserving existing pavement and restoring structural capacity to deficient pavement.

TechTransfer wants you to get the training you need to achieve maximum value from this new funding by employing the most advanced, cost-effective and sustainable pavement practices possible.  To help with this, a robust curriculum of pavement classes have been developed in partnership with the City and County Pavement Improvement Center with funding fromthe Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 (California Senate Bill 1)  Effective January 1, 2021, some of these class deliveries will be hosted in partnership with the California Department of Transportation, Division of Local Assistance, under the California Cooperative Training Assistance Program. Together, these partnerships provide expert training to help you better repair and maintain California’s roadways with reduced registration rates for California's city, county, regional, state, and other public agencies.

Pavement Courses

CCPIC is developing the most current and comprehensive training curriculum available to California’s pavement engineering and management workforce. Courses are intended for engineers, asset managers, upper-level managers, technicians, and construction inspectors, and cover Pavement Fundamentals, Management, Design, Materials, and Construction. Classes are affordable and offered entirely online, requiring no travel or time away from work, saving local agencies time and money while meeting thier training needs.

Certificate Programs

CCPIC classes can be taken individually or combined into a curriculum that includes core and elective classes to obtain a certificate. Successful completion will require students to be registered individually for each class counting toward the certificate and to earn a passing grade on the culminating quiz administered at the end of each class. 

Pavement Engineering and Management Certificate

The Pavement Engineering and Management Certificate will be awarded to students who successfully complete 88.5 hours of CCPIC training: 56.5 hours in required core classes and 32 hours of electives. Topics include pavement engineering and management fundamentals, pavement design, materials and construction, and sustainability.

Pavement Construction Inspection Certificate

The Pavement Construction Inspection Certificate will be awarded to students who successfully complete 80.5 hours of CCPIC training: 68.5 hours in required core classes and 12 hours of electives. Topics include general construction inspection and safety practices, and asphalt and concrete pavement  inspection for new construction, street improvements, preservation, and more.

Package Pricing

TechTransfer now offers a streamlined way for agencies to purchase CCPIC certificate training packages for employees. Agencies can purchase a prepaid training package for employees to complete an entire certificate program for $2,110 per person. This price covers all core classes and electives to complete either the Pavement Engineering and Management Certificate or the Pavement Construction Inspection program.

Funds never expire, are fully transferable within the agency, and can be applied to any class offered by TechTransfer, so even though they are non-refundable, there’s no risk that training funds will be lost if an employee is reassigned or leaves the agency or if training needs change. Training packages are not eligible for group discounts.
