This training was developed by the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council (TCCC) in partnership with State DOT personnel. It helps transportation professionals involved in the installation, inspection, and quality of pipe on highway construction projects improve their understanding of the factors that contribute to high-quality installations. The training was prepared by State DOT personnel for State DOT personnel. It contains good practices from various agencies. Each State agency/company has their own specifications, which the viewer needs to review and follow for the specified pipe. This course is primarily intended for inspectors and technicians.

This course is focused on the three basic pipe materials. They are Concrete, Metal, and Plastic. This course contains important instructional material, procedures and guidance that has been developed to maintain uniformity among pipe inspectors. This course will cover what you need to know, do, and look for during the inspection of pipe installation.

This training is directed toward the intermediate level technician, to give them an in-depth view of the basic materials used in pipe construction. The course modules will address the different types of pipe as well as the foundation work, bedding selection, placement, joint sealants, backfilling and documentation for concrete, metal and plastic pipe.

NHI is hosting this and other TCCC Web-based developments to serve a critical need for training. We need your feedback to determine whether we should continue posting other Web-based trainings like this one. Please take the time to complete the evaluation form provided at the end of the training, or email


Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify basic material pipe types
  • Recognize proper foundation and bedding requirements for pipe
  • Link different types of pipe with its required specifications for installation
  • Identify common errors to avoid when dealing with placement, joints and backfilling of pipe
  • Recognize the importance of accurate records and reporting


This course targets field personnel involved in all aspects of highway construction from engineers to technicians. The ideal audience will have a mix of experience and responsibility levels so that agency-specific practices can be shared by more experienced participants with those who are newer to the field. The course materials also are appropriate for project manager/resident engineer involvement.
