Certified Inspector Training

REGISTRATION UPDATES:

The Kansas Department of Transportation has made the directive that all written exams for the CIT program will be moved online. Written and performance exams will be administered online at the same time. Students will register for one exam date and be given access to the written and performance exam. Exam dates and registration information is available on the Registration and Schedule page.

The move to online performance exams is a temporary replacement for the performance exam required by CIT certifications. These temporary online performance exams are only in place during COVID-19 restrictions and will be discontinued and replaced by normal, in-person performance exams once it is safe to gather in person. The temporary online performance exams are a written exam and will require a 70% or higher to pass.

ACI Concrete Field Tester will remain in person for both written and performance exams. At this time, the exam dates will be held as planned. Should COVID restrictions result in an inability to hold the in-person exam dates, they will be rescheduled. Please check the CIT website for ACI Concrete Field Tester dates.

Construction Stormwater field training will remain in person. The written exam will be offered online. At this time, the field training dates will be held as planned. Should COVID restrictions result in an inability to hold the in-person field training dates, they will be rescheduled. Please check the CIT website for Construction Stormwater dates.
