Course rating of 0 Vendor rating of 5

You examine implications of soils and pavement materials, roadway drainage, practical techniques for field evaluation of pavement conditions, review causes and effective remedies of pavement deterioration.

Course Outline

After participating in the course you will be able to do following:
improve pavement life-cycle
reduce pavement costs
understand pavement defects, their causes, and solutions
use maintenance and rehabilitation methods to extend the useful life of pavements
compare the costs of maintenance and rehabilitation alternatives
apply the information from the national guide for sustainable municipal infrastructure
relate pavement design theory to practice

Cost-effective pavement management results from careful design, quality construction, and timely maintenance.  Engineers and technical managers are faced with the challenges of maintaining the investment in highways and urban roads, while new materials and methods must accommodate increasing axle loads.

This course will provide the information necessary to deal with pavement challenges. Participants will examine implications of soils and pavement materials, roadway drainage, and practical techniques for field evaluation of pavement conditions. In addition to reviewing causes of pavement, we will discuss pavement maintenance and rehabilitation techniques such as patching, crack sealing, thin surface restoration techniques, overlays, and other innovative methods and materials. Your learning will be further enhanced through case study presentations, real-life examples, and question and answer periods.

To provide an update on pavement management, with special emphasis on materials and procedures used in design, construction, maintenance, and rehabilitation.

Who Should Attend
Maintenance, construction, and design engineers; contractors; technical managers; and consultants and municipal engineers with responsibility for managing maintenance budgets, determining pavement repair or rehabilitation techniques, or implementing pavement maintenance programs. Manufacturers and suppliers of pavement materials will also find the course beneficial.

Here are some reviews of the training vendor.
The course was very well presented and the course instructor was absolutely amazing.
Reviewed by 2013
Our instructor, Stephen Lamming, was outstanding and a true expert in his field. He was able to complement the technical air monitoring information with practical real life examples which was highly beneficial. He is an excellent communicator and was highly interactive with the course attendees. This course was recommended to me because Stephen Lamming does an outstanding job. I was very impressed with this course and have subsequently recommended it to my colleagues.
