Evaluating Pavement Condition (virtual)

This course is currently not scheduled. Stay tuned for future sessions.

Agencies need to know what they have and its condition to make informed project and treatment decisions.

This 2-hour virtual training provides guidelines for conducting asphalt pavement condition surveys based on the Pavement Surface Evaluation and Rating (PASER) methodology. PASER uses a single value to represent overall pavement condition. It is intended to be a consistent, objective, and repeatable pavement evaluation tool. During the training, you’ll learn to:

  • Identify common pavement distresses.
  • Assign appropriate PASER ratings based on observable conditions.
  • Identify suitable maintenance and rehabilitation treatment options based on condition survey information.

Participants are encouraged to bring photos of distresses in their network to class. Anyone without a basic understanding of asphalt pavement distresses is also encouraged to complete a 10-minute primer prior to class.

Note: This is the first in a series of trainings that support pavement management. This class is a prerequisite for Pavement Condition Assessment Field Training, a 4-hour in-person training that explains how to conduct pavement condition surveys using PASER ratings.
