N.I.C.E.T.

Mercer County Community College and Transportation Engineering Technology have partnered to offer NICET Levels I, II and III training workshops on-site at the college and online nationwide. N.I.C.E.T. certification was designed for engineering technicians involved in the inspection and monitoring of highway construction projects. Areas covered in the workshops are: interpretation of contract plans and specifications; project record keeping
and reporting; construction surveying; field inspection and testing procedures; techniques and equipment; and supervisory techniques.

Want to improve your math skills prior to the workshops or testing? The following class can help:

Construction Math

Construction Math provides an overview of mathematical operations faced on the job. Learning objectives are:

      • Understand why certain calculations must be performed.

      • Review the units of measure commonly used for documentation and payment.

      • Practice the rounding concepts and decimal measures commonly used on projects.

      • Understand calculations and demonstrate how to apply them.

N.I.C.E.T. Levels I Highway Construction

 

Our National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technology (NICET) workshops enables candidates to demonstrate their skills and knowledge, while establishing a path that promotes continuing professional development. This workshop is designed for technicians with less than two years of experience. For more information please visit the NICET website.

The session consists of five training modules including:

 

Plans and Specifications: Learn how to recognize and use standard construction terminology, identify purposes and roles of various project documents, match locations on plans to site, locate and understand information on project drawings, identify project documents that specify types of project work, and locate information in agency/owner standards and specifications.

 

Measurement and Surveys: Understand and use U.S. Customary and Metric units of measure for length, area, volume, weight, mass, temperature, pressure, and strength. Also learn to convert one U.S. Customary unit to another, or one Metric unit to another, while performing arithmetic calculations. Calculate areas and volumes of simple geometric shapes, while maintaining the correct precision. Measure dimensions and compare plans and specifications. Identify survey stakes and markers, interpret notation, and use drawing scales to determine distances.

 

Tools and Equipment: Learn about the different tools and equipment used by inspectors for inspections, testing, and reporting. Identify tools and equipment used by surveyors, and identify tools and equipment used in construction.

 

Personal Safety: How to appropriately use personal protective equipment (PPE) for the construction site. Understand and identify and report potential safety hazards, while learning about and Identifying sources of safety information and requirements.

 

Site Operations: Learn how to identify components of work zone traffic control, and construction activities, Learn to identify, and verify the presence of, erosion and sediment control components while Identifying, and verifying the presence of, types of utility markings. 1.0 CEU.

Cost: $350

N.I.C.E.T. Level II Highway Construction

 

Our National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technology (NICET) workshop enables candidates to demonstrate their skills and knowledge, while promoting continuing professional development.

The session consists of seven training modules including:

 

Earthwork: Visually identify soil and aggregate types and their properties. Differentiate between limits of disturbance, rights-of-way, and easements. Inspect clearing and grubbing, temporary erosion and sediment controls, and storm water management components. Recognize materials testing, certification, and acceptance requirements. Monitor field procedures for soil compaction testing and assess results. Inspect placement and grading of embankments, including compaction and finish tolerances.

 

Asphalt Pavement Construction: Inspect existing surface preparation as required. Inspect the application of tack coats. Conduct preplacement inspection, including grade control, equipment prechecks, and paving plan review. Visually identify asphalt mixes and properties. Identify the requirements for materials sampling used for testing and verify conformance. Inspect delivery, placement, compaction, and finishing of asphalt.

 

Concrete Pavement Construction: Inspect forms, reinforcing steel, and load-transfer assemblies for pavements. Verify that concrete for pavement meets testing and certification requirements. Verify that correct procedures are followed for sampling fresh concrete; measuring temperature; determining slump, air content, unit weight, and yield; and making and curing test specimens. Inspect delivery, placement, and consolidation of concrete for pavements. Inspect finishing and surface tolerances.

 

Concrete Structure Construction: Inspect box culverts, box beams, and other precast items; bedding and installation of footings and basic driven pile; forms and reinforcing steel for structures, and calculate pay weight; delivery and method of concrete placement for structures; cast-in-place structural components.

 

Drainage: Identify drainage system components. Inspect excavation for drainage. Inspect bedding and backfilling.

 

Utilities and Incidental Construction: Identify utility facilities affected by construction. Inspect signage, striping, and message marking; guardrails, safety systems, and fencing; basic foundations for lighting, traffic signals, ground-mounted signs, and sound walls; underground electrical conduit; sidewalks, curbs and gutters, curb ramps, medians/median barriers, and driveways.

 

Site Layout and Controls: Use survey notes and data to verify elevations.
