With support from members Duit Construction Co.* and RexCon,* ACPA presented plant manager training for Duit personnel last week. Personnel from the Air Force Civil Engineer Center (AFCEC) and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) audited and provided feedback on the course.
The training is part of a specification requirement for a project at Tinker Air Force Base, OK. The course last week allowed Duit to meet the specification requirements several months before alternate training was available.
John Privrat of Duit Construction praised the team efforts led by Gary Mitchell. “The team ‘knocked it out of the park,’ especially since we had to put this whole class together in less than a month,” John says. “Gary did a great job anchoring most of the presentations, and we also had several other quality speakers. The feedback I received from our people, and from USACE and the Air Force was overwhelmingly positive. We sure appreciate the support from ACPA and all of the work Gary put into this. As always he did an outstanding job.”
Privrat, who serves as the ACPA Airports Task Force vice chair, adds that he hopes this training module will be included in future airfield pavement specifications.
