JOINT TRAINING & CERTIFICATION PROGRAM



About

The Joint Training and Certification Program (JTCP) was established by Caltrans Materials Engineering and Testing Services to achieve consistent training and certification for all technicians involved in the transportation construction industry throughout California. The purpose of the JTCP is to improve the quality of the pavement construction practices that Caltrans and other agencies obtain, and to help reduce conflict and delay on construction projects within the state. The JTCP was developed in partnership with CSULB’s College of Engineering.

Caltrans and contractor personnel attend the same classes, work together, and receive equivalent training. This practice fosters respect within the industry, while generating increased consistency. The JTCP also enables individuals and agencies to verify progress and certifications held by other individuals.

This is the OFFICIAL program to obtain the necessary certifications for work requiring Caltrans testing certifications (both industry and agency).
