Registration is now open for Volvo’s 2018-2019 Road Institute, the paving industry’s premier training program. Offering a mix of classroom and hands-on training on a variety of operations and maintenance topics, sessions start in late October 2018 and continue through May 2019.
“We encourage people to register early because sessions fill up fast. That’s especially true of our extremely popular Paver and Compactor Operation and Maintenance class,” said Wayne Tomlinson, Road Institute compaction training specialist. “Our students leave the classes with increased knowledge that will help them produce better quality mats, reduce operation and maintenance costs, and improve on a variety of other skills, all of which could help them earn higher bonuses.”
Sessions last two to five days and are held at the Road Institute Training Center in Shippensburg and Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, and at the Road Institute West location in Phoenix, Arizona.
All instructors have decades of field and teaching experience, and they incorporate training on the latest DOT requirements. The paver and compactor operator courses also qualify toward NAPA Diamond Paving commendation requirements. The paver and compactor class with a Spanish-language focus will be Feb. 19-22.
