FHWA Bridge Inspector's Manual: Bridge Inspection Programs
This engineering online PDH course discusses the history of the National Bridge Inspection Program, the responsibilities of the bridge inspector, and quality control/quality assurance.
Advances in technology and construction have greatly enhanced current bridge design. However, the emergence of previously unknown problem areas and the escalating cost of replacing older bridges make it imperative that existing bridges be evaluated properly to be kept open and safe.
The 1 PDH online course is intended for civil, construction and structural engineers, and would be of particular interest to consulting engineers or to engineers serving in government organizations concerned with the safety of bridges.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Knowing the history of the national bridge inspection program
- Understanding the responsibilities of the bridge inspector
- Knowing the qualifications needed to be a bridge inspector
- Implementing quality control and quality assurance methods in a bridge inspection program
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of ten (10) questions to earn 1 PDH credit. The quiz will be based on Chapter 1 of this FHWA publication.
