Do you use, or plan to use, PAVER 7.0 to do pavement management? If so, check out this training series! It provides useful guidance and tips for navigating PAVER for all experience levels.

PAVER provides pavement management capabilities to: (1) develop and organize the pavement inventory; (2) assess the current condition of pavements; (3) develop models to predict future conditions; (4) report on past and future pavement performance; (5) develop scenarios for M&R based on budget or condition requirements; and (6) plan projects. The four training sessions explain how PAVER supports these pavement management tasks.

During the training, an experienced instructor will demonstrate PAVER functions and then give you an opportunity to practice new skills and ask questions. When you return to work, try what you learned for a week; then, check in with the instructor during at a virtual Q&A forum. Every training session includes a one-hour Q&A forum where you can ask questions, share tips, and celebrate your success!
