The School of Geography, Geology and Environment has worked with Aggregate Industries in the UK to develop and deliver this e-Learning short course in asphalt. The program is only available to employees of Aggregate Industries and other Holcim group companies. Group access to the course will normally be organised and paid for at country or regional level. Individuals should therefore speak to their Learning and Development manager in the first instance.
The program is designed to give an introduction to various aspects of asphalt technology and production, and comprises the following three courses with a number of units in each:
- Introduction to asphalt and use
- Asphalt Constituents
- Plant Operation
- Cold Feed
- Dryer Principles
- Dryer and Baghouse Operation
- Elevator and Tower
- Mixing and Discharge
The cost of the program is £135 (GBP) per participant, who will receive a Certificate of Completion from the University of Leicester upon successful completion. If you wish to make a credit card payment to cover a group of employees, then please continue by adding the relevant number to your basket. Further details can be obtained from Toby White at the University (T.White@le.ac.uk), +44 7731 970 692.
