At the end of the training, user will be able to conduct a pavement structure design following recommendations of the French rational method.
This is also a good way to evaluate the software features and analyses options.


Any technician or engineer in the field of pavement structures. No prerequisites.

Training sessions can be tailored at customer’s request.

The content of the training is discussed and established in function of the user’s profile.
This kind of course has the advantage to fit the customer needs.
This training can also be a good pre-sale introduction to ALIZE software.

On-line training is the appropriate formula when user’s agenda or distance is a problem for the training schedule.

Itech has chosen the Teamviewer tools for a flexible and quick assistance to the user. The advantages of these tools are a flexible choice in terms of content and date. Thus it is easy to schedule a training program, tailored and scalable (half-day training as example). These tools also overcome distances and borders. A simple broadband internet connection is required.
