Fundamentals, design, construction, and maintenance training for preserving and restoring pavement
Asphalt pavement is a major component of our transportation system. Transportation agencies at the city and county level can maximize the value of their huge investment in streets and roads by using proper pavement maintenance strategies.
This course provides a solid working knowledge of the most common pavement maintenance and preservation practices. Basic principles, best field practices and safety issues are covered.
This course is based on Day 3 of the Asphalt Pavement Materials, Design, Construction & Maintenance and is offered as a low-cost alternative to that course.
Additional course detail is provided in the sections below.
By the end of this course, students have a better understanding of the most common pavement maintenance strategies and materials, and their most appropriate uses in an agency's overall pavement management plan.
This class is tailored for those directly involved in asphalt pavement maintenance or rehabilitation as well as maintenance supervisors and managers, engineers with some responsibility for maintenance, pavement management, or rehabilitation.
It is appropriate for those who are new to the subject as well as for experienced pavement managers wanting additional technical background or an update on the state-of-the-practice.
