A QCT performs testing of fresh Portland cement concrete including sampling, concrete temperature, slump, unit weight, air content, and fabrication of specimens for strength testing and performs other duties including calculating cement content and water-cement ratio as required by specifications. This is a special segment designed by ODOT as a supplemental to the ACI Concrete Field Testing Technician Grade 1, for certification to work on state projects.

A half day review, with the exam given the next morning, is sponsored by OCAPA in cooperation with Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT). Individuals will need to be familiar with water-cement ratio worksheets and be able to navigate the following ODOT manuals :

·          Manual of Field Testing Procedures

·          Oregon Standard Specifications for Construction - 2021 (Black Book).

The 2021 Oregon Specifications must be purchased through an outside vendor. The purchaser must create a login/password account to process the order.
The direct link for the Spec Books is https://5207--62.myuplinxstore.com/franchise/index.htm and is also located on our Specifications webpage at http://www.oregon.gov/ODOT/HWY/SPECS/pages/index.aspx

The Manual of Field Testing Procedures is not available through OCAPA but can be purchased through the ODOT website:


A current copy of ASTM C-94 Specifications (found in the ACI manual) is needed for the exam. The exam is a 90 minute open book exam with a passing grade of 80%. Those successfully completing the ODOT examination and the ACI written and performance exams will be certified for work on ODOT projects . This certification expires the same date as ACI Concrete Field Testing Technician Grade 1.


Written ODOT recertification exams can be scheduled by appointment by calling the OCAPA office at 503-588-2430.

This class does NOT include the ACI Concrete Field Testing Technician - Grade 1 certification, which is required. Please remember to register for the ACI class.
