Abstract The methodology used in this research followed a combination of action research methods along with a job training structure. The job training structure allows for the development of a training program in a quick and effective manner taking into account the current knowledge and experience level of the trainees (Nolan 1996). The action research method allows for the continuous development of a process and improvement of results (Azhar 2010). Figure 1 represents the combination of both methods as it applies to this research project. The first cycle started by identifying/diagnosing the problem. Then, through means of questionnaires and meetings, data were gathered regarding the level of knowledge that prospective trainees have on pavement preservation in each of its phases.
