Pavement preservation is a proactive approach to protecting and maintaining existing pavements. NHI offers this five-course series that focuses on different pavement preservation techniques that may be performed on Portland Cement Concrete (PCC) pavements.
All the courses in the series provide detailed, how-to instruction covering the full scope of tasks involved in successfully completing each preservation technique. The Web-based trainings use short, focused, task-based lessons with creative instruction that make the lessons directly applicable to your work in the field. You'll find checklists, visual aids and graphics, and videos that reinforce the content so you can apply new knowledge right away.
Enrolling in this series gives you access to the following courses; each highlights a specific preservation technique:
-How to Construct Durable Full-Depth Repairs in Concrete Pavements (FHWA-NHI-134207A)
-How to Construct Durable Partial-Depth Repairs in Concrete Pavements (FHWA-NHI-134207B)
-Proper Diamond Grinding Techniques for Pavement Preservation (FHWA-NHI-134207C)
-Proper Construction Techniques for Dowel Bar Retrofit (DBR) and Cross-Stitching (FHWA-NHI-134207D)
-Proper Joint Sealing Techniques for Pavement Preservation (FHWA-NHI-134207E)
Whether you work for a contractor or a transportation agency (Federal, State, or local), take this series to increase your knowledge about constructing durable, quality PCC pavement projects using specific pavement preservation treatments. Learn how to employ successful practices and techniques on concrete pavement preservation projects. Specifically, you will focus on these questions:
1. Why is the technique an important part of concrete pavement preservation?
2. What options are available for performing the construction processes and procedures? Which options provide the best opportunities for success?
3. What materials are involved in the techniques?
4. What are the proper techniques for mixing, placing, and curing?
5. What are the specific, sequential tasks required to properly perform each of the techniques?
Each of the Web-based training products is also available as a standalone course that can be accessed by registering for the individual course number listed above.
This course provides support and instruction for individuals involved in construction projects using concrete pavement preservation techniques. Participants may have some awareness and past involvement with paving processes, but the training is appropriate for learners regardless of experience level with the techniques.
This course will appeal to individuals in the following roles: agency inspectors and construction managers; construction supervisors, workers, and technicians; and engineers.
