Fundamentals, design, construction, and maintenance training for preserving and restoring pavement
This four-hour course will introduce definitions and metrics for assessing and improving the sustainability of pavements across the life cycle, using the concept of life cycle thinking.
Strategies and approaches for different states of the life cycle, different contexts, and differing goals of agencies will be discussed. Cost and social considerations will also be discussed.
Expected future changes in tools, technologies, and policies for improving sustainability, and considerations to help assure that proposed changes have a high probability of improving sustainability will be presented.
This is an introductory-level course offered by the City & County Pavement Improvement Center (CCPIC) in partnership with the UC Berkeley TechTransfer Center.
Additional course detail is provided in the sections below.
SESSION 1 (2 hours)
SESSION 2 (2 hours)
Course attendees will learn:
Professionals responsible for pavement engineering, specifications, and construction management; pavement management; civil infrastructure materials procurement; policy and planning for streets, roads, and active transportation; and sustainability planning and policy in any area.
