Overview

Inspecting roads effectively remains a critical skill in the management of the roading infrastructure. Developing knowledge to identify faults and target the right intervention at the right time is the objective of this course. This enables your teams to develop effective work programmes that deliver more value to the roading networks and minimize the inconvenience to our communities.

Fundamental pavement knowledge and an introduction to asset management provides context to the decisions our road inspectors make. These principles are challenged during the field exercise contained within the course. Participants are welcome to share their experiences in the interactive learning environment.
