The Rocky Mountain Asphalt Education Center (RMAEC) was founded in 1996 as the "Education and Certification Arm" for the Colorado Asphalt Pavement Association (CAPA).In addition to facilitating the LabCAT Program, the RMAEC offers educational seminars for City and County Agencies, Contractors, and Consultants. Most seminars are held in the RMAEC class-room; however, there are opportunities to customize employee training days at your company location.

In 2008, the RMAEC began web based asphalt training. The Webinars are live interactive training sessions presented by the RMAEC Staff, as well as Industry experts. Each webinar broadcast runs approximately 60 – 90 minutes in duration, and is recorded for later viewing.

The range of Educational Seminars and Webinar Topics reaches from basic information to specific detailed training. A sampling of past and present topics include: Asphalt Plant Production, Asphalt Construction, Asphalt Maintenance & Repair, Introduction to the High Speed Profiler, Introduction to Quality Control (QC) and Quality Assurance (QA) Testing, Warm Mix Asphalt, ME Design, Introduction to Superpave Mix Design, and The Use of Recycled Materials.

The RMAEC embraces the challenge to grow with the industries educational needs. We appreciate the participation and feedback we receive from our members and community. It is our continued goal to provide pertinent and high quality education for the asphalt industry.
