In this course, presented in Spanish, you will find "how-to" instruction covering the scope of tasks and considerations involved in performing diamond grinding, diamond grooving, and next generation concrete surfacing (NGCS) operations.
Diamond grinding and grooving are surface restoration procedures used to correct concrete pavement surface distresses or deficiencies. They are often used in conjunction with other pavement preservation techniques (e.g., dowel bar retrofit, partial-depth repairs, full-depth repairs) as part of a comprehensive pavement preservation program. Each technique addresses a specific pavement shortcoming. In some situations, it may be justified to use diamond grinding or diamond grooving as the sole preservation technique; however, this depends on the conditions and characteristics of the specific project.
This course contains short, focused, task-based lessons that include detailed visual aids and videos, which reinforce the content so you can apply new knowledge directly to your work in the field.
Learn how to employ successful practices and techniques on concrete pavement preservation projects. Specifically, you will explore these questions:
Why is the technique an important part of concrete pavement preservation?
What options are available for performing the construction processes and procedures?
Which options provide the best opportunities for success?
What materials are involved in the techniques?
What are the proper techniques for mixing, placing, and curing?
What are the specific, sequential tasks required to properly perform each of the techniques?
This course provides support and instruction forindividuals involved in construction projects using concrete pavementpreservation techniques. This training is ideal for construction foreman,workers, and technicians; agency inspectors and construction managers; and engineers.

There are no formal prerequisites for this course. The level of instruction assumes the participant has some awareness and involvement with paving processes, but the training is appropriate for participants regardless of past experiences with the techniques. Some instruction on how each technique fits into the broader context of pavement preservation is necessary in order to emphasize why a worker should follow best practices; however, most training content is focused on the ┐how to.┐
