Free Training by ISSA and sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration
Learn cost saving pavement preservation techniques that benefit your agency/organization with this training based on the ISSA High Performance Slurry Systems Inspectors Manual, the ISSA Technical Bulletins, and the Asphalt Emulsion Manufacturers Association’s Basic Asphalt Emulsion Manual.
- How to Construct High Quality Slurry Seal and Micro Surfacing Treatments – Part 1
The first of two modules provides practical information to assist in the construction and inspection of high performance slurry system projects (slurry seal and micro surfacing). The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and ISSA have authorized this module to provide an educational tool that could be used by persons possessing limited familiarity with slurry system methods. Contractor performance along with user agency oversight both play an important role in the successful outcome of slurry systems projects. This training module will address both sides of the equation.
- How to Construct a High Quality Slurry Seal and Micro Surfacing Project – Part 2
The second module focuses on construction best practices of both slurry seal and micro surfacing as published in the ISSA High Performance Slurry Systems Inspector’s Manual.
- How to Construct High Quality Chip Seal Treatments
Introducing best construction practices for chip seals, this course provides an overview of chip seal treatments and why they are needed. It discusses selecting the appropriate materials for chip seals, and how to store, transport, and apply sprayed asphalt treatments. This module also explains some best equipment practices.
- Best Construction Practices for Operating a Spreader Box used with Slurry/Micro Surfacing Materials
This module focuses on the capabilities, components, and construction best practices of a spreader box.
- Best Construction Practices for Crack Sealing and Joint Filling of Asphalt and Concrete Pavements
This module focuses on understanding the differences between crack sealing and crack filling, the materials and methods used to perform crack sealing and crack filling, the pavement conditions that warrant the use of crack treatments, the equipment and tools used for crack treatments, and construction best practices.
These courses were written in a SCORM compliant format that includes a testing component and captures scoring data. A course certificate is included for individuals passing the final exam with a score of 70% or higher.
