This training was prepared by the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council (TCCC) in partnership with NHI to provide guidance and instruction to inspectors involved in the construction of hot mix asphalt (HMA) pavements. The important tasks involved in this work are explained and proper procedures are described. This training is recommended for the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council levels I, II, and III. This course is primarily intended for inspectors and technicians.

This training is arranged in a fashion to help the inspector first learn the various aspects of what is involved in a HMA paving operation and then become familiar with the duties that are a part of the HMA pavement grade inspection responsibilities. It also explains how to recognize the mix properties of a HMA mixture. The information included will assist the inspector in recognizing problems during a project and offering solutions to the problems. This training is not intended to cover every aspect of HMA paving.


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

  • Know various aspects of what is involved in a HMA paving operation
  • Understand the duties of a HMA paving inspector
  • Recognize the mix properties of a HMA mixture
  • Recognize the problems that may occur on HMA paving projects
  • Understand the product and project so solutions can be recommended


This training would be beneficial to anyone that is involved with an HMA paving project, but focuses on technicians/inspectors that are involved with the production, placement, and inspection of HMA paving projects.
