  • Self-healing asphalt and concrete materials 

Webinar Benefits 

  • Understand the benefits of implementing innovative roadway design, construction and maintenance techniques 

  • Be able to describe key factors to ensure the successful adoption of new processes and procedures 

  • Identify potential sources for detailed information on innovation deployment 


Delivery Method: Virtual Session – Zoom Webinar

Course Fee Includes: Access to the course, course materials, and upon completion a digital certificate if requested.

This course is delivered in partnership with local and provincial construction associations across Canada. You will be participating with a group of industry peers from multiple regions.

Sharing a single registration between two or more individuals is not permitted. Please register each person that will be in attendance.


There are no prerequisites for this course.

Who Should Attend

This course is suitable for all levels of architects, engineers, technicians and other technical and operations staff involved in the design, construction, and management of roadway transportation infrastructure.  Basic technical principles are outlined followed by case studies and real-world examples of their use and implementation.   

Technical Requirements

  1. Computer or laptop

    • This course will involve on-screen interaction with your instructor and classmates, reading/viewing on-screen content (slides or videos), and interacting via typing with questions or responses. For this reason, cellphones may not be adequate. 

    • Windows 10 or Mac iOS. 

  1. Webcam (Mandatory)– in order to engage and collaborate, participants will be expected to have their webcams on for the duration of the class

  2. Microphone (Mandatory)

  3. Internet connection- For best results, you will want to ensure you have an internet connection with an upload/download speed of 3-5 Mbps. You can test your internet speed here. The minimum recommended speed is 1.5 Mbps, but anything below 3 Mbps may result in loss of quality or buffering. Ideally hardwired connection versus wireless for stability - connect your computer directly to your router using an ethernet cable, rather than using your home wi-fi.

  4. A quiet space with minimal distractions –The microphone will be engaged for interactive sessions. Please plan to be fully engaged in the class and clear your work schedule just as you would for the in-class program.

  5. Comfortable chair
