Why enter?

For 47 years, Road Institute® has focused on providing paving contractors, operators, agencies, and industry personnel with the link between equipment technology and industry applications. The courses are designed to improve operators’ skills by providing both classroom and hands-on learning experiences throughout the sessions. Don’t own or operate Volvo road machinery? No problem. These industry-based training courses provide information on the equipment used in all stages of the road building process, equipment maintenance, and various applications from experienced and trained instructors — regardless of the machine you’re operating.


“Road Institute focuses on the art and science of paving. It’s not about any single brand of equipment. It’s about exchanging asphalt paving and compaction best practices,” said Paul Parker, Senior Marketing and Programs Specialist for Volvo Construction Equipment North America. “It’s good for the seasoned pro who wants to take his/her skill set to the next level, the new hire who needs to learn important lessons quickly, and everyone in between who cares about doing the job right and being profitable.”

The Working Iron: Asphalt — Road Institute® Sweepstakes is open to legal residents of, and who are currently residing in, the U.S. and Canada excluding Puerto Rico and Quebec. Entrants have until March 31, 2012, to enter for the chance to win. Official rules and guidelines are available at volvoce.com/sweeps.
