AASHTO TSP2 Certification Exams (June 2018) @ HAPI Office
Jun 28 @ 8:00 am – 12:00 pm

AASHTO TSP•2 Preservation Treatment Certification exams will be offered in Hawaii on a regularly scheduled basis; this is the first offering. In the future, the Department of Facility Maintenance, for the City and County of Honolulu, may require their consultants to be certified.

You must register BOTH at Eventbrite to cover the proctor fee

and at the NCPP website

Please note:

  • All tests start at 8:00 a.m. There is a break room in the office to rest between test.  It is anticipated that you will be able to complete your test(s) by noon, although there is no time limit.
  • An agency employee will need to register as an agency employee regardless of the exam they take, however, you should notify HAPI in advance if your agency self-performs their work and you intend to take the contractor exam.  (you will be asked this when you register on EventBrite)
  • A consultant will register as a consultant but will take the agency exam (there is no different consultant exam, it is assumed that you provide design, construction management, or inspection services)

Registration deadline is end of day June 19, 2018.
