This hybrid online class will combine both live instruction and independent online work that you will complete during the day.  Independent work will include quizzes, readings, videos and short assignments.  Access to a computer with a webcam (either a camera that is built into your laptop or one that connects via USB), a reliable internet connection and a workspace that is free from distraction and noise will set you up for success.

This training is designed to provide participants with a better understanding of the value added by incorporating pavement preservation strategies into maintaining a roadway network. Gaining this better understating will be accomplished by providing participants the opportunity to become familiar with the general concept of pavement preservation and the valuable role it plays in maintaining a roadway network. Participants will gain more detailed knowledge necessary to properly incorporate the concept of pavement preservation into maintaining an interactive workshop. The strategically placed workshops provide hands-on learning opportunities by simulating real-world situations that require participants to systematically apply knowledge gained from this training to evaluate pavement preservation applicability, identify feasible strategies and determine appropriate treatments. Examples of good practices for determining candidate projects, selecting specific strategies and applying appropriate treatments provided throughout this training will support decision-making necessary to successfully complete the workshops.


Learning Modules:

Module 1: Influence of Pavement Condition on Project Selection / Crack Filling and Sealing

Module 2: Fog Seals and Micro Surfacing (What, Why, When, and How?)

Module 3: Chip Seals and Thin Overlays

Module 4: Ultra thin Bonded Wearing Course and Pavement Treatment Feasibility
