VECAT MCS Class Schedule Released, Registration Open

Finally, the Virginia Education Center for Asphalt Technology (VECAT) returns to the classroom in January 2022. Learning from the pilot classes held in September 2021, VECAT’s face-to-face MCS classes will have a hybrid format—part video-based and part in-person instruction.

The video-based format will focus on instruction from industry experts such as TJ Young, Daniel Francisco and Chuck Ingram. The in-person experience will focus on the core materials needed to obtain VDOT certification. Most of the in-person experience will be taught live and supplemented with  select videos. Classes begin with a benchmark assessment and end with the VDOT credential.ing exam.
