NAPA Webinars


New-NAPA-Talks-Webinars-WebNAPA offers a variety of webinars throughout the year on various topics related to the asphalt industry. These topics range from newly released industry regulations to innovative processes and technology that can benefit your company. The NAPA webinar program will deliver the information you need to the comfort of your home or office.

Professional Development Hours (PDHs)Participation in NAPA webinars may earn you Professional Development Hours (PDHs). PDHs are educational units used to fulfill continuing education requirements for licensure or certification. In most cases, 1 hour of participation in a webinar equals 1 PDH. Some states and certifying bodies require pre-approval of professional development hours and documentation requirements also vary, so be sure to check with your appropriate agency. You are responsible for maintaining the documentation for your PDHs. You can request a certificate of completion after you attend any of the webinars to keep for your records.  

UPCOMING WEBINARS

ROI for Polymer-Modified Asphalts
Date: Tuesday, December 10, 2:00–3:30 p.m. EST
Speaker: Professor Walaa Mogawer, PhD, P.E., F. ASCE, Highway Sustainability Research Center, Director, Highway Sustainability Research Center, University of Massachusetts

In recent years, states have increased their use of polymer-modified asphalts (PMA) to improve their pavement networks. This has increased the costs of mixtures, but there has been no quantification of the return on investment (ROI) for PMA. This webinar will present the findings of “Impacts of Polymer-Modified Asphalts (PMA) on Pavement Performance and Cost,” a study funded by the FHWA and NAPA under a cooperative agreement. It will detail how highway agencies are currently specifying PMA in dense-graded mixtures, the tools being used to determine ROI, and the ways PMA is affecting pavement performance, along with recommendations as to how states can better predict ROI and document performance improvements.

From recruiting workers to plant permitting to winning jobs, having a recognized brand can help your business thrive. Branding is mostly intangible; it primarily exists within the minds of customers and the philosophical orientation of the company. However, good branding produces real-world results, including helping customers make informed buying decisions, differentiating you from your competitors, and leveraging your reputation to build trusting relationships founded on honesty, authenticity, and genuine understanding. Learn from marketing professionals and industry peers about the critical steps to build a trusted brand and practical measures taken that yield tangible results.

Mix Design Strategies for Improving Asphalt Mixture Performance
Date: Friday, January 10, 2:00–3:30 p.m. EST
Speakers: Gerry Huber, Associate Director of Research, Heritage Research Group; Bill Pine, Quality Control Director of Asphalt Technology, Heritage Construction and Materials; Dr. Nam Tran, Assistant Director, Associate Research Professor - National Center for Asphalt Technology at Auburn University

This session will discuss adjustments that provide improved performance while considering impacts on cost and use of recycled materials. Over the past decade, most state highway agencies have made adjustments to the Superpave mix design procedure with the goal of improved pavement performance. Based on a survey of state asphalt pavement associations, research, and historical data, a NAPA PEC-sponsored study conducted by NCAT has identified adjustments that can potentially provide the greatest improvement in pavement performance. This session will discuss these adjustments and their impacts on cost and use of recycled materials.
