|Interim Certification Policy|
Interim Certification for Technicians or Inspectors is defined as that status which is granted to an individual, by NETTCP, based solely on experience and/or informal training. It shall be granted only when an individual cannot attain formal qualification due to circumstances beyond his/her control. Interim Certifications shall be valid only for the construction season subsequent to the date of issuance of that certification. Interim certification for Technician or Inspectors are offered for all certifications with the exception of the Quality Assurance Technologist.
Applicants are required to produce the following:
Individuals seeking Interim Certification shall contact NETTCP and complete and provide resume along with copies of any additional required certifications and money to NETTCP.
Those individuals who receive an Interim Certification must attend the next available certification course if one is scheduled during the year. If the interim certified individual does not attend the course or pass the examination(s) their interim certification will be revoked.
Interim certified individuals are subject to examination by state DOT’s to verify their competence.

A. Types of Information We Collect
We collect certain personal information about you but only when that information is provided by you or is obtained by us with your authorization. We use that information to register you for training and certification classes, and to make your certification status available at your request.
Examples of sources from which we collect information include:
NETTCP uses browser "cookies" for customer sessions. A cookie is a small file stored by the browser that can only be read by the same server that set it. NETTCP does not store any sensitive information, such as credit card numbers or passwords, in the cookies it uses. When NETTCP creates a shopping cart for a customer, it will set a cookie to associate the customer with a particular shopping cart. There are several situations, in addition to adding products to a cart, which will cause a shopping cart to be created, including registered customer log-in, or coming to the store from an associate link. If the customer has cookies disabled, the shopping cart will be linked to the customer's IP address.
If a registered customer logs in, a cookie is created that tells NETTCP who it is. This is a "session" cookie, which means it will expire as soon as the customer closes their browser, or does not do anything on the store Website for an extended period of time, or if the customer completes an order.
When a customer selects tax, shipping, or payment method options, and then clicks on Checkout on the main shopping cart screen, these selections are stored in a cookie. This allows NETTCP to "remember" the customer's selections if they return to the store to place another order. The cookie will expire one year from the date it was created. If the customer's browser does not allow cookies, the "memory" feature will not be available.
C. Parties to Whom We Disclose Information
As a rule, we do not disclose personal information about our certification holders or former certification holders to anyone. However, to the extent permitted by law and any applicable state Code of Professional Conduct, certain nonpublic information about you may be disclosed in the following situations:
To comply with a validly issued and enforceable subpoena or summons.
In the course of a review of our organization’s practices under the authorization of a state or national licensing board, or as necessary to properly respond to an inquiry or complaint from such a licensing board of organization.
As a part of any actual or threatened legal proceedings or alternative dispute resolution proceedings initiated either by or against us, provided we disclose only the information necessary to file, pursue, or defend against the lawsuit and take reasonable precautions to ensure that the information disclosed does not become a matter of public record.
To provide information to affiliates of the organization and nonaffiliated third parties who perform services or functions for us in conjunction with our services to you, but only if we have a contractual agreement with the other party which prohibits them from disclosing or using the information other than for the purposes for which it was disclosed.
D. Confidentiality and Security of Nonpublic Personal Information
Except as otherwise described in this notice, we restrict access to nonpublic personal information about you to employees of our organization and other parties who must use that information to provide services to you. Their right to further disclose and use the information is limited by the policies of our organization, applicable law, our Code of Professional Conduct, and nondisclosure agreements where appropriate. We also maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in compliance with applicable laws and regulations to guard your personal information from unauthorized access, alteration, or premature destruction.
E. Contact Information
Please contact us if you have any questions.

|Modified Exam Consideration Policy|
Individuals who require physical or administrative accommodations during testing must contact NETTCP in writing a minimum of three weeks prior to the scheduled exam date. Requests for accommodations are handled on a case by case basis and may require documentation from the individual.
NETTCP will make a reasonable effort to provide accommodations where the integrity of the exam process and the safety of the participants and instructors are not compromised.
Certified Individuals who are signing off on candidates that require a completed evaluation form (PG Binder and Interim certification) have a responsibility to ensure that the candidate meets the required prerequisites.
The NETTCP Board of Directors adopted the following policy:
“If a certified individual signs off on a candidate for an interim certification, the certified individual may be asked to submit written documentation of the criteria he/she used to warrant the sign-off. If the written documentation is not satisfactory to the Executive Committee, disciplinary action up to revocation of certification(s) may be taken.”
NETTCP will be awarding a minimum of five $3000 annual scholarships to deserving undergraduate students who are residents in or attending school within one of the member states and have at least completed their first year in an appropriate engineering or construction technology program with an interest in the construction materials field.

The development and implementation of the NorthEast Transportation Training and Certification Program (NETTCP) has been made possible through funding contributions from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the six New England states, contractors, consulting firms, private testing labs and industry associations. This funding has allowed NETTCP to develop courses, retain the services of consultants to develop manuals, conduct pilot courses, work on standardization issues, develop and print the policy and procedures manuals, etc. As more courses continue to be developed, there needs to be a partnership in funding the development of new courses and other developmental work as approved by the NETTCP Board of Directors.
The six New England states, the FHWA and the FAA have collectively committed nearly $250,000 to the initial development of the program. Industry as a whole has contributed approximately $60,000. Therefore, to encourage industry contributions and to sustain the continued development and success of the NETTCP, the following policy statement has been developed.
Those organizations/companies that made an initial grant of at least $1,000.00 to NETTCP will be identified as Founding Sponsors The names of Founding Sponsors will be listed on NETTCP publications alongside the state agencies as the sponsoring organizations of the NETTCP.
Those companies that make a yearly gtrant of at least $1,000.00 to NETTCP.
State or Regional Association Membership
Those companies that make a yearly gtrant of at least $2,500.00 to NETTCP.
National Organization Membership
Those companies that make a yearly gtrant of at least $5,000.00 to NETTCP.
Each member will receive the following benefits:
Those organizations/companies or individuals that are Non-Members will be assessed a per participant fee of approximately 35% above the course cost to register individuals in the NETTCP training and certification courses.
Note: This policy is a guideline and subject to case-by-case approval by the NETTCP Executive Committee.
All people attending a NETTCP course for certification shall have their picture taken at that course. The photograph shall be used for the following two purposes:
