Road Institute will offer training sessions, ranging from two to five days, beginning in mid-September 2015 through May 2016. Courses are held at the Road Institute Training Center in Shippensburg and Chambersburg, Pennsylvania and at the Road Institute West location in Phoenix, Ariz.
Training courses combine classroom-style instruction with hands-on learning, and focus on a range of paving and compaction topics, including operation, application, maintenance and mechanics.
New for the 2015-2016 course schedule are several courses incorporating an overview of Volvo Intelligent Compaction with Density Direct, a real-time density mapping technology.
The paver and compactor operator courses qualify toward the NAPA Diamond Paving Commendation requirements. Safety and best practices are emphasized within the curriculum of each course.
A 25 percent discount will be given to those who register by September 30 for any classes held September through December 2015.
