Training

One of the keys to quality is a well-trained workforce. With proper training and education, workers know how to get the job done right and even experienced workers benefit from the chance to learn about new techniques, technologies, and evolving best practices. Training can help reduce overall costs, improve safety, and enhance employee retention.

 

NAPA is the source for training courses and tools that are specific to the asphalt pavement industry.

 

The NAPA webinar program includes educational programming covering a wide range of topics from engineering and materials technologies to environmental and health and safety issues, marketing, and industry news.
