NPCA Staff Report
The Michigan Department of Transportation recently approved NPCA’s PQS Level II-QA/QC course as an alternative to its Michigan Concrete Association Level II certification.
Michigan joins Texas, Florida and Arizona in recognizing a PQS Level II course for statewide personnel certification requirements.
The PQS II-QA/QC course is available online through the NPCA education portal. The course presents topics that build on NPCA’s Quality Control Manual. Coursework includes aggregate gradation analysis; aggregate moistures; hot and cold temperature concreting; testing for mechanical properties and durability; and analyzing trends in test data.
More than 700 individuals have taken the material and passed an exam to earn credit, either as a stand-alone course or as a step toward becoming an NPCA Master Precaster.
