CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY TRAINING NETWORK
 
MAINTENANCE AND REHABILITATION OF PARKING AREAS (WEBINAR)
Wednesday, February 3, 2021

Parking lot pavements are constructed to provide a safe and durable riding surface for the travelling public. Some may be constructed using a flexible pavement (asphalt); others rigid pavement (concrete).  Which types are appropriate for each application?  What are the functional requirements for rigid vs. flexible pavement? How can each be constructed and maintained in a cost-effective manner?  Pavement construction is very expensive and once the pavement is built, what is important to ensure that we are getting our money’s worth.  How do I determine when I need to “fix” something?  What is involved?  What are the costs? 

This webinar begins with a series of common failures of commercial parking area pavements. The mechanism of the failures is discussed along with design principals and construction techniques to prevent these failures.  The course then steps through pavement design, specification, construction, maintenance, and rehabilitation techniques to improve the performance of the pavements. 

Webinar Benefits        
  • Understand key components and factors necessary for the cost-effective design of pavements.
  • Assist in developing specifications to ensure the performance of pavements.
  • What is important for tender documents/specifications?
  • Knowing what is important to look for during construction to ensure the longevity of the parking area pavements.

PROGRAM TESTIMONIALS:

"Some of the lessons were easy for me based on my experience . . . but some really helped fill in my swiss cheese gaps of knowledge."
IPSL Alumni


"My team attended as a group which meant we were able to discuss our learnings after each session. As well as taking full advantage of the excellent materials in the Resource Room, this approach added another layer of value to the program. We continue to remind each other of advice we heard in the sessions.” 
IPSL Alumni

"The course was excellent – I liked the dynamic of having 3 panel members with different views and perspectives – either because they had been in different positions or just different situations. Having former politicians included as well was super interesting to me.”

RESILIENT CIVIC LEADERSHIP
Compassionate Integrity Training for Civic Leaders

Tuesday May 25 - June 24, 2021
(5 week University Certificate Program)

Uncertain and turbulent times call for ethical and resilient civic leadership. In this 5 week (two, 2 hour sessions a week) interactive program, learn to cultivate the values and leadership skills required to increase personal, social and environmental well-being. 

By covering a range of skills from self-regulation, relating to others ethically and with compassion to engaging with complex systems, this training builds towards compassionate integrity: the ability to lead in accordance with one's values with a recognition of our common humanity, fostering trust and social cohesion - the key to resilient workplaces and communities.

Compassionate Integrity Training® is based on cutting-edge developments in the fields of neuroscience, psychology, trauma-informed care, peace and conflict studies, and contemplative science. It builds off of work done by Daniel Goleman (author of the book Emotional Intelligence) and Peter Senge, initiatives in Social and Emotional Learning (SEL), and other areas. Its development has been aided by the collaborative work of a team of experts with both academic and applied backgrounds.
 
  • Graduates of this online program will receive a certificate from Life University's Center for Compassion, Integrity & Secular Ethics based in Georgia, USA. Participants must attend a minimum of 8 of the 10 online sessions to receive their certificate.
  • Participants include diverse civic and community leaders, from Mayors, Councillors, Board members and senior municipal staff to culture/well-being organizational representatives, non-profit directors and community builders.
  • The time commitment for this course is 2 hours via Zoom twice each week for the 10 sessions (20 hour total). While there is no formal homework, participants are asked to spend time in between sessions reflecting, journaling & engaging in personal practice of the skills learned.
