About This Course

Why Take This Course
Contractors engaged in doing business with NAVFAC & USACE are required to provide a trained Quality Control Manager for every project.

Who Should Take This Course
Contractor’s field personnel (Superintendent, Foremen, Quality Control Manager, Alternate Quality Control Manager, and Field Engineer) as well as office personnel (Project Manager, Office Engineer, and Project Engineer).

Course Objective

This course is designed to familiarize the student with the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Construction Quality Management and QC Organization requirements. The student will be familiar with the QC documentations and record keeping as well as inspection and testing procedures. After the successful completion of this course the student will have enough knowledge/information to be able to prepare a “Quality Control Plan” for any project.

This course is presented in two distinct parts. The first part of the training (Module 0) provides the basics for those construction personnel who have not worked on USACE or NAVFAC Army Construction Contracts. The second part of the training (Modules 1 through 7) focuses on USACE and NAVFAC Construction Quality Management concepts and procedures and how to successfully implement the “Quality Control Plan”.
