Fundamentals, design, construction, and maintenance training for preserving and restoring pavement
Pavement networks are often the most valuable asset that an agency owns. This asset is not only expensive to replace, but it is an essential component to the traveling public's safety.
Agencies are looking for more cost-effective ways to perform engineering, maintenance, management, and rehabilitation of roadways more than ever before to stretch funding allocations. A pavement management system is an essential tool to assist in cost-effective roadway maintenance planning.
This is the primary overview course on pavement management systems and preservation strategies in the training certificate program offered by the City and County Pavement Improvement Center (CCPIC) in partnership with TechTransfer.
Additional course detail is provided in the sections below.
Pavement Management Principles/Overview
Pavement Condition Surveys
Classroom Exercise: Pavement Condition Indices
Types of Software Available
Types of Maintenance & Rehabilitation Treatments
Integrating Maintenance Treatments Into a PMS
Prioritization Concepts & Funding Scenarios
Developing a Multi-Year Work Plan
Communications & Presentations
Questions & wrap up
This class covers the fundamentals of pavement management systems (PMS).
The student will learn the types of distresses included in a typical PMS, how pavements are surveyed for condition, and how condition and classification is used within a PMS.
In addition, the inner workings of a PMS are described, covering prediction models and the use of varying funding scenarios and prioritization techniques to maximize your pavement network condition.
The important topic of communicating with elected officials to sell your program will be covered, along with preservation and maintenance techniques commonly used by local agencies.
This course is designed for engineers or maintenance superintendents responsible for:
Students should bring a calculator and pencil for in-class problems
