Failure to Meet Training Requirements
If the QCT Level 2 has not attended the required amount of training, he or she must retake the certification written test to continue performing QCT Level 2 duties. The test will only be mandatory for new certifications and persons who do not accumulate the required training hours per 3 year period prior to certificaiton expiration.
Waiver of Testing Requirements
Written and performance testing requirements for recertificaiton will be waived if a Level 2 QCT attends at least 18 hours of training per 3 years, prior to certitification expiration and actively performs or reviews Level 2 QCT duties for a minimum of 6 months per year for the 3 year period. The Level 2 QCT certification is valid for 3 years.
Independent Assurance (IA) Program
In response to FHWA recommendations, GDOT's Independent Assurance (IA) Program has been modified to a System Basis Program. As such, all active certified Level 1 and level 2 QCT Technicians are required to participate in the IA Program. This consists of sampling and testing proficiency evaluations when scheduled by GDOT.
Any active technician who, for whatever reason, does not have at least one satisfactory IA Evaluation within their three year certification period cannot renew with only training hours or by retaking the written exam and must be completely certified again. If your certification period is ending and you have not had an IA evaluation, it is recommend that you contact the IA Program at least six months before your expiration date to schedule an evaluation.
If you have any questions about the IA process, please contact the Quality Assurance Branch Supervisor at 404-608-4781.
