About the Program

This eLearning Program is based on ASTM Manual 70 and provides guidance to design and construction engineers, technicians and earthwork construction personnel on the use of ASTM Standard Test Methods for testing compaction of earth fills and other earthworks.

The courses provide a summary of the important items that every experienced earthwork engineer and technician should know and understand to successfully complete an earthfill construction project. The courses represent a summary of the skills and terminology that new engineers and technicians need to understand to obtain quality earthwork construction.

The courses cover types of fills in which compaction is used and the theoretical background of compaction. Coverage includes the overall purpose of compacting fills and the potential negative effects on the engineering properties of compacted materials caused by improper application of compaction test methods.

This program includes access to all five courses on Soil Compaction Quality Control.

Each course can be completed in about one hour and can be purchased individually. Courses contain:

  • Self-guided training with video demonstration or state of the art animation, checklists, concept presentations, glossaries
  • A copy of the relevant ASTM Standard
  • Interactive review opportunities and a quiz with automatic grading
  • Certificate upon successful completion of course

Anyone who runs soil compaction tests or who needs an understanding of the test methods.

Certificate and CEUs

CEUs and PDHs are provided upon successful completion of each course. Most courses in this program provide 0.1 CEUs or 1 PDH. Please see individual course listing for more information.

A certificate of completion is available upon reviewing the course and receiving an 80% or higher score on the quiz.
