CPEE TRAINING ‘SUPPORT’ FOR THE DROUGHT-AFFECTED GOULBURN COMMUNITY

The Centre for Pavement Engineering Education (CPEE) regularly provides road and pavement engineering education training in rural and regional Australia.

In recent months CPEE has become acutely aware of the drought conditions throughout New South Wales. As we often deliver road engineering training courses in regional areas, we meet people first hand and learn of the hardships faced by many in Australia’s rural communities.

Recently CPEE presented a short course in Goulburn on ‘Maintenance and Rehabilitation’, responding to a request from engineering staff of the Goulburn Mulwaree Council for a customised course to assist their ongoing cost-effective road maintenance and repair treatments.

CPEE has moved by THAT much..

CPEE has made a leap into some larger office space and as such our postal address has changed..sort of.

Our new address is Suite 9, 935 Station Street Box Hill North VIC 3129 which is a whole 10 steps down from our old address in Suite 6 of the same building. All contact phone numbers and email remain unchanged. If your in the area feel free to stop on by and say hello.

Otta Seals: the under-utilised tool in pavement preservation?

Improving asset management can often come from new or improved technology – not just enhanced processing and reporting of data sets. One such instance where adopting and adapting technology has proved to be a winner, has been in the central NSW regional Shire of Narrandera. Relatively unknown in Australia, Otta seals are a low-volume, low-cost road treatment used predominately in South Africa. Put simply, graded gravel/crushed rock is placed on a relatively thick film of soft bitumen, and then rolled.

Work Place-Support for CPEE Students - Semester 1 2018

Do you remember a supportive teacher, co-worker or manager that boosted your learning and development? If so, then you know the value of mentoring and importance of having someone you can trust to talk to and get helpful advice from.

One of the final units that students undertake in their Centre for Pavement Education (CPEE) higher education programs is a capstone unit involving a project relevant to their work. Workplace mentors play an important role by keeping in contact with students throughout the semester and using their expertise and experience to provide valuable feedback and guidance. Workplace mentors also assist the CPEE Unit Chair to grade the final reports produced by students.

Training ‘support’ has a new meaning - CPEE supports a community in hardship

The Centre for Pavement Engineering Education (CPEE) is dedicated to pavement engineering education, and because of this dedication will often provide training where it is needed, in the more remote parts of Australia far from capital cities.

Coonamble lies about 250 km east of Bourke in Central NSW and is severely affected by the ongoing drought in rural NSW. In fact, this area has not seen decent rainfall for six years.
