2023 Technical Training Series

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The N.C. Department of Transportation’s 2023 Technical Training Series is a pilot program that will offer various courses to small highway construction contractors interested in working on NCDOT projects.  Each course will cover NCDOT specifications and standards drawing, equipment requirements, bidding and estimating, project management, invoicing and payment, and more.  

Courses will be held in Raleigh, Charlotte, Asheville​​ and Greenville and will be taught in-person by NCDOT engineers, prime contractors and other industry professionals.​

Program Cost & Class Size
The program is free and limited to 25 firms per class. NCDOT can accept two individuals per firm, but other staffers may be waitlisted for another session if space is not available.

Selection Criteria
The program is for small contractors in the highway construction industry. Graduates will receive a Certificate of Completion after finishing a course in the program. These courses provide an overview of the skills and resources necessary for work on NCDOT projects but are not certification courses for specific trades.

Please look at the ​​​schedules below to plan what classes you would like to take. Then register to reserve your spot​. Please note: ​You will receive notification of acceptance in the class at least two weeks prior to the scheduled course.​​
