Each course includes:
- Many short training videos.
- Small quizzes after each video to review what you’ve learned.
- A VRX course library including learning materials required for the course and useful checklists to take with you and use in the field.

In our courses, we tried to review Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) requirements for each item of work as well as requirements for training roadway inspectors.1
Our continuous effort is to expand our library of courses to cover a wide range of inspection items and train inspectors to be ready to perform the construction inspection from day one.
