The candidate’s supervisor must contact the ADOT District Office for their agency (see ADOT District Boundaries map
) identify the candidate as a boot camp student, and request the candidate to be assigned to their own ADOT-administered project to complete level III of the boot camp. If an LPA project is unavailable at the time, coordinate with the ADOT District Office to see if LPA inspector services can be utilized on other projects.
Activities and duration to complete Level III depends on the project itself as each project is unique in nature. For example; urban projects could be lengthy and involve many activities such as, AC & PCCP paving, bridges, retaining walls, box culverts, pipes, traffic phasing, etc. On the other hand, rural projects could be shorter in duration and limited to AC paving, installation of pipes, sidewalks, curb & gutter, seeding, etc.
The Resident Engineer (RE) will rotate the candidates through most of the inspection activities of the project, including testing and sampling materials. The RE will evaluate and certify the candidate on criteria of understanding, initiative and attendance.
Level I and II must be completed prior to coordinating with the District Office to begin Level III.
