Events & Training

WCPA Offers Training on Many Topics

As you plan for the upcoming construction season, we thought you might like to know what concrete pavement classes and training the Wisconsin Concrete Pavement Association has available. Perhaps one of the following topics is of interest to you and your staff and would be beneficial to any ongoing education in your department. Professional Development Hours are available.

We’re happy to tailor these presentations to meet specific objectives and time constraints. Or, with a little time and our creativity, we can develop any of these topics into a dynamic keynote or luncheon address, or even a half-day workshop. Available to Wisconsin Municipalities and Consulting Engineers in Wisconsin.

The following presentations are available:

  • Concrete Pavement Construction Inspection Using PavementDesigner.org
  • Concrete Pavement Construction Inspection
  • Joint Layout & Design
  • Americans With Disabilities Act Conformance on Construction
  • Concrete Pavement Repair and Preservation
  • New Innovations in Concrete Pavement
  • Wisconsin DOT Specifications Update (revised annually)
  • Concrete Overlays
  • Integrated Materials and Construction Practices for Concrete Pavement

A sampling of our schedule:

  • Monthly WCPA member informational meetings in Madison and WisDOT regional office cities
  • Annual Municipal Concrete Pavement Workshop
  • Annual meeting with each WisDOT Region to discuss design and construction issues
  • Quarterly meetings of the WCPA/WisDOT Concrete Pavement Technical Committee
  • Quarterly meetings with the WisDOT Secretary and Administrators offices
  • American Concrete Pavement Association events and meetings
  • Federal Highway Administration, WisDOT, Wisconsin Aviation Conference, and Transportation Research Board meetings

Our educational workshops and training programs cover the latest advances in concrete pavement technology. We educate and train engineering staff on how to design, build and maintain concrete pavements.


WCPA/WisDOT Annual Concrete Paving Inspection Workshops

The primary objective of the WCPA / WisDOT Concrete Pavement Inspection Guide is to educate the concrete pavement inspector for the purpose of ensuring “Good Practices” during the concrete pavement construction process. Proper inspection plays a key role in providing a well-constructed high-quality pavement and can influence performance quality and the ride quality. WCPA developed the course and guide for municipalities in 2008 and the “pilot course” was given in May 2009. The manual and PowerPoint development were developed with WCPA as the lead and WisDOT providing review and approval.
