Certification: Asphalt Paving

1125 17th St. NW, Washington, DC 20036

The IUOE Job Corps operates two paving programs; a basic and an advanced program. The basic program provides training to gain the necessary skills for entry level employment in the paving industry. Students in this program learn the basic skills of dirt and asphalt construction equipment. The advanced asphalt paving program requires that students entering this trade have completed a basic IUOE Heavy Equipment Operator Program or the IUOE Basic Asphalt Paving Program. Students must possess basic skills in the operation of heavy equipment and a deep familiarity with the construction industry work environment in order to master the more intricate operations taught at the advanced level. Training in the advanced program may consist of travel to other Job Corps centers to complete actual paving projects. This provides you with the opportunity to represent the IUOE Job Corps Program which requires you possess the capability and desire to be an example to others. Classroom-related education is incorporated into the hands-on training in the field on actual construction projects with a heavy emphasis on safety. Students are tested periodically throughout their training to ensure they have achieved the skill levels reflected on their Training Achievement Record.
