Basic Mixture Technician Training Tue, Nov 6, 2018 thru Fri, Nov 9, 2018 The Basic Mixture Technician Training (BMT) course provides detailed, hands-on laboratory training to both experienced and inexperienced technicians for testing aggregates and asphalt mixtures. Instruction will cover the most current AASHTO and ASTM standards used in the Superpave mix design process. The course focuses on giving the students a thorough understanding of each test and related processes, while instructing students on the procedures and techniques which will maximize testing accuracy and repeatability. Students will receive training over the entire range of activities related to asphalt mix design and testing: aggregate sampling and batching, testing aggregate properties, mixing, short-term aging, compaction, and testing of both loose and compacted asphalt mixtures. Eighty percent (80%) of the course time will be spent in the laboratory, and the remaining twenty percent (20%) will be spent in classroom instruction. The class size is limited to six students to maximize each student’s time with instructors while reviewing each test procedure. This course is intended to complement the Asphalt Institute’s Mix Design Training (MDT) course. While the BMT course focuses on the actual tests and laboratory processes involved in asphalt mix design performed by technicians, the MDT course focuses on how advanced technicians, designers, and/or engineers use laboratory and project information in the mix design process to create long-lasting asphalt mixtures.
