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.
