Volvo’s Road Institute 2010-11 covering asphalt paving, compaction equipment
Volvo Construction Equipment has set the 2010 – 2011 schedule for the Volvo Road Institute. The course curriculum ranges from two- to five-day sessions beginning in September and continuing through June 2011, at its two training facilities in North America: one in Chambersburg, Pa., and the other in Phoenix, Ariz.
Nearing its fifth decade, the Volvo Road Institute focuses its training efforts on the customer and various occupations within the hot-mix asphalt (HMA) paving industry. The Volvo Road Institute provides the paving contractor, operator, agency and industry personnel with a link between equipment technology and jobsite applications. Operator courses and seminars are designed to improve an operator’s skills with both theory and hands-on operation of asphalt paving and compaction equipment.
The curriculum is designed for operators and crew personnel, as well as state DOT administrators and asphalt production professionals. Courses are offered in paver and compactor operation and maintenance, applications, automatic grade and slope control systems, screed operation and soil compaction application. Additional courses are offered on milling machines and hydraulic and electrical system fundamentals of Blaw-Knox and PF6000-Series pavers.
Courses are structured to provide classroom and hands-on practical training. Topics in each session range from daily and weekly maintenance to the operation and application of asphalt paving. Safety is included as part of each course curriculum, as it is one of the Volvo core values.
Class size is limited for ideal instructor-to-student ratios and team learning. Tuition is $750 per student per course. For more information on the Volvo Road Institute or to register for classes, go to www.roadinstitute.com.
