Noon to 1:30 p.m. (CENTRAL) | 1 to 2:30 p.m. (EASTERN) | 10 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. (PACIFIC)
Gary Mitchell, P.E., Vice President of Airports & Technology, American Concrete Pavement Association (ACPA)
Designing and constructing quality airport pavements has always presented unique requirements and challenges, many of which are very different that those encountered with pavements for highways or other facilities.
Learn about challenges encountered when placing and rehabilitating concrete pavements for airports using specifications of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC).
This webinar will guide participants through some of the common questions and concerns associated with the FAA’s P-501 and UFC’s 32 13 11 specifications. This course is based on practical field experience and serves as a guide for interpreting, gaining a better understanding, and gaining practical insights about the specifications. The course is drawn from field experience and guidance from top pavement experts, much of which has been gained by working with contractors, owner’s representatives, military engineers, and others with direct, first-hand experience.
The course is designed for contractors and engineers with either extensive or limited experience in airport pavement construction. It is not intended as a basic primer on the specifications; instead, the webinar will cover key specification-related issues, challenges, questions that commonly occur on the grade. The presentation will be approximately 70 minutes long, but extra time will be allowed for questions, discussion, and observations.
Participants will have the opportunity to:
- Learn recommended best practices for constructing airport pavements using FAA and UFC specs.
- Learn basic contrasts and comparisons between the FAA and UFC airport pavement specifications.
- Identify, understand, and reconcile examples of misinterpretations, contradictions, or ambiguities commonly reported.
- Learn about recent changes or revisions to both specifications.
- Ask questions and provide comments about specific challenges or issues associated with one or both specifications.
Professional Development Hours (1.5 PDH’s Available)
ACPA will jointly award 1.5 professional development hours (PDH’s) to those wishing to complete an optional “evidence of learning exam” following the webinar.
Participants interested in earning PDH’s are responsible for determining the applicability of any training programs toward licensing requirements in their respective state/province. This program is oriented toward jurisdictions that allow self-reporting for licensure purposes. Participants are strongly advised to check the applicability of this training along with other reporting requirements in advance of taking this course.
