Asphalt Pavement 101 class Redding - CANCELLED 


CalAPA’s enormously popular "Asphalt Pavement 101" class is a good overview of everything asphalt, touching on how asphalt pavements are designed, constructed and maintained. It is taught by Roger Smith, a former senior materials engineer with Caltrans and the Asphalt Institute, as well as a former executive director of CalAPA.

The class is a half-day packed with loads of useful information for contractor and agency paving crews, quality control specialists, lab personnel and others who interact with asphalt pavements. The class will cover pavement structure and terminologies, asphalt binders, aggregates, asphalt mixes, plant operations and mix delivery, paving and rolling, acceptance specifications and testing.

Because so much is changing in the world of asphalt pavements, the class is an excellent refresher course for  Roger Smith veterans in the industry as well as providing a good overview for those new to asphalt pavements. The class is a recommended prerequisite for other CalAPA technical classes, such as “Caltrans Section 39 Specifications,” “Essentials of Pavement Smoothness” and “Quality HMA Paving.”

Bonus! All class attendees will receive a reference booklet that includes copies of the slide presentation, key acronyms, glossary and other reference items for future use. Attendees will also receive a handsome certificate of completion documenting that they have completed four (4) Professional Development Hours (PDH) of technical instruction.

LUNCH: A 30-minute catered lunch will be provided to all attendees.

Registration for this class will be on a first-come, first served basis for the first 35 people registered.
