Item Detail
Earthwork Series: Excavation (3 PDHs)

This course offers professional development hours (PDHs). You will see the PDHs on your course completion certificate, which also serves as documentation of your attendance. PDH requirements vary, therefore, it is up to you to determine whether or not this particular course qualifies under your State or board requirements.

Course overview: Excavation is the fourth part of the five-part Earthwork Series. Excavations of soil and rock are an integral part of highway construction due to the associated costs, safety concerns, engineering considerations, and short- and long-term performance expectations. This course provides an overview of the basic principles related to the requirements for proper excavation during a project.

This training consists of four modules, which cover the equipment used to excavate soils, and the procedures, requirements, and special considerations for mass excavation, permanent cut slopes, and temporary trench excavations. This course also covers common problems and safety concerns associated with excavation.

Training level:
This training is recommended for the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council levels II through IV.

Target audience:
This training is targeted to both agency and industry technicians that will be using earth materials as engineering materials on an earthwork project. This training is beneficial to anyone working on the project but is targeted to the intermediate to advanced technician.

Learning outcomes:
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
• Explain considerations and requirements for excavation;
• Recall excavation safety procedures; and
• Relate common issues and solutions associated with excavation.

TC3 web-based trainings are FREE for employees of state DOTs that contribute annually to the TC3 technical service program.
