About Highway Construction Inspection

This course is intended for personnel at the junior inspector level, with 1-2 years of field experience, who want to advance to the senior inspector level or for contract administration personnel who wish to enhance their understanding of the contract inspection and administration process.

With appropriate field experience, this course is approved to meet part of the criteria of the MTO/OACETT Road Construction Senior Inspector (RCSI) designation.

On September 22, 2021, the Government of Ontario implemented a proof of vaccination system to access certain non-essential services, this includes entering meeting spaces and conference halls.  In accordance with this new requirement and ACEC-Ontario’s own in-person event policy, all participants attending in-person MTO courses will need to be fully vaccinated.  For 2022, the Highway Construction Inspection (HCI) and Contract Administration (CA) courses will be held in-person, and the Road Construction Contract Administration Recertification course will be delivered online.

When registering for HCI or CA, you will be required to confirm that you will be fully vaccinated by the time the course commences.  Full vaccination means that you are two weeks past your second dose of a two-dose Health Canada approved COVID-19 vaccine, or two weeks past your dose of a single-dose Health Canada approved COVID-19 vaccine.  On first attendance at each course, all participants and instructors will be required to provide, at the point of entry, proof of identification and proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19.  Failure to provide proper documentation will result in the participant being turned away from the course. 

ACEC-Ontario will not be retaining any information or documentation provided by course participants in relation to the proof of vaccination requirement.

Please note: no refund will be provided for those who register for either course but fail to prove their full vaccination status when attending the course.
