COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Improving and maintaining the quality of concrete is an important aspect of keeping pavements safe and long lasting. This training provides participants with an overview of the entire Portland cement concrete (PCC) paving and restoration process: setting forms, mixing, hauling, curing and applicable repair techniques. This training is presented in several modules:

1. Construction Quality

2. PCC Production Overview

3. Slipform Paving

4. Fixed Form Paving

5. Pavement Curing, Sawing, and Joint Sealing Operations

6. Concrete Pavement Restoration

This self-paced, Web-based training is designed for participants to progress at their own pace. The training focuses on the proper methods for construction of concrete paving and pavement restoration techniques with an emphasis on cause and effect.

OUTCOMES:

Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the differences between truck-mixed and ready-mixed concrete
  • Identify factors in production and paving operations that contribute to achieving a smooth ride
  • Describe the differences between slip-form and fixed-form paving
  • Identify the factors that impact saw timing and crack control
  • Recognize the importance and key factors in placing joint sealant materials
  • Identify the components of concrete pavement restoration application and construction techniques
  • Describe the purpose and appropriate use of full depth and partial depth repairs
  • Indentify critical factors for curing and sawing operations that affect pavement performance
  • Describe the purpose of grinding and dowel bar retrofit
  • Identify applicable repair techniques for concrete pavement restoration
  • Describe purpose of slab stabilization and joint and crack resealing

TARGET AUDIENCE:

This training is designed for contractors, technicians, and inspectors who are involved in daily pavement operations for the placement and restoration of PCC pavements. Participants should have some working knowledge of concrete pavement construction.
