Stabilisation Fundamentals course – now available “Live Online”

2 Half Days $550 inc GST with an early bird price of $495

AustStab Limited was established in 1995 to promote the benefits of pavement stabilisation and recycling, set national standards of performance, assist with and coordinate research, and educate and train people in the industry.

A key component of the AustStab annual education and training program is the Stabilisation Fundamentals course run across Australia every year in conjunction with the Centre for Pavement Engineering Education (CPEE).

During the COVID-19 pandemic and until further notice, CPEE will run this course live online over three days with two 90 minute sessions on both day 1 and day 2, followed by an optional workshop on day 3.

Content is common across all courses, however registration by state is encouraged to allow a focus on local specifications and construction practice.

Prior to the course, attendees will receive by post the CPEE printed notes folder, the AustStab Pavement Recycling and Stabilisation Guide and the AustStab Insitu Stabilisation Construction Guide.

All questions submitted during the online training will either be addressed directly during the sessions, or answered in writing following the course.

To ensure good interaction with the presenters, numbers for each course will be restricted – so make sure you register early to avoid disappointment.
