Volvo CE’s 2015-2016 Road Institute to offer Density Direct training in addition to paving, maintenance
Volvo Construction Equipment is offering 34 courses in 13 categories as part of its 2015-2016 Road Institute between September 2015 and May 2016 at locations in Phoenix and Chambersburg and Shippensburg, Pennsylvania. The program is now in its 50th year.
“Today’s pavers and asphalt compactors are more technical and precise than ever before,” says Wayne
Tomlinson, compaction training specialist, Road Institute. “Road Institute aims to teach contractors best practices — regardless of the brand of equipment they operate — so they can be equipped to make smart decisions on the job.” Volvo CE says the courses, which combine classroom and hands-on experience, cover operation, application, maintenance, mechanics, and for the first time the company’s intelligent compaction with Density Direct.
Courses focusing on paving and compacting operation meet the National Asphalt Pavement Association Diamond Paving Commendation requirements. The company recommends early registration due to class size limitations, and it offers a 25 percent discount on registrations made prior to Sept. 30 for classes between September and December 2015.
