The CPEE Information Alert (CIA) is a monthly collation of interesting news and updates from around the pavements world that should be of interest to you to assist your ongoing awareness and knowledge enhancement.
Last week, Centre for Pavement Engineering Education (CPEE) Executive Manager: Professional Development, Dr Kym Neaylon, spent a couple of days in Jakarta as a guest of the 11th Global Asphalt and Pavement Summit. Kym gave a presentation on bitumen use in Australian pavements, also chaired the Advanced Technology session, and finished with a CPEE training session entitled "Road Pavements and Bitumen for non-road people".
The Centre for Pavement Engineering Education (CPEE) is very pleased to have received such positive feedback following presentation of our updated short course ‘Pavement Maintenance and Rehabilitation – Understanding and Evaluating Options’ in Sydney last week.
“Thank you for a knowledgeable two days of training.”
As is usual practice with CPEE courses, delegates were asked to provide feedback to assist us to improve course offerings and to better meet our educational and training objectives. In addition to providing feedback on the course structure and content, many delegates went out their way to provide positive additional comments, especially for presenter Geoff Webb.
