Comments from attendees:

  • I learned more in this one day workshop than I have in one week workshop or in one semester.
  • Very informative. I gained appreciation of the right methods to a quality asphalt pavement.
  • Good introduction for those without background in HMA.
  • Jarrett helped me see a better picture of the standard practice of paving from start to finish.
  • Proper compaction is important for A.C. pavement.

The Next Level – 3-hour workshop

Please note: “Best Practices for Asphalt Pavements” workshop is a prerequisite for this workshop.

Who Should Attend: Government agencies, contractors, engineers, and construction managers wanting to gain a “next level” understanding of how to construct a quality asphalt pavement.

Cost: $85 for non-HAPI members; $60 for HAPI members. Includes refreshments.

Certificate Provided: 3.0 PDHs are available for attending this workshop

In this workshop, you are the inspector at paving project site. The attendees will be split into small groups to discuss what they see in a short (1-2 minutes) video of various paving situations. The audience will gather and one of the groups will lead the discussion of what they saw. The group discussion will be followed by a presentation on the topic.

What did attendees have to say about “being the inspector”:
– Looping videos were great learning tools.
– It helped make us aware of job inspections and situations.
– You can talk more being in a small group.
– Good format, good interaction, good for learning.
– Good to learn from people with various backgrounds and levels of expertise.
