Further Information

  • There will be approximately 20 seats available for NMDOT district Two, and another 20 seats for other districts. Limited to 40 attendees.
  • Each participant would receive a bound copy of workshop notebook.

Important Notes

  • Attendees would need to bring their lap top computers for the hands-on exercises. There will be some extension cords but make sure the battery is fully charged on computer.
  • The ProVAL version from the Download webpage is NOT the version we will use for the workshop. The ProVAL workshop requires a special version of ProVAL customized for the hands-on training. Installation of the workshop version of ProVAL on your computer prior to the workshop is needed since it requires administrative right for that specific computer.

Workshop attendees need to visit the workshop preparation page (to be posted one week before the workshop) for further instructions including workshop software download, etc.
