The Geosynthetic Institute (GSI) will sponsor a short course “Quality Assurance/Quality Control of Geosynthetics in Waste Containment Facilities,” Jan. 14–16, 2019, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 3:30 pm EST. Geosynthetic Materials Association (GMA) member companies and their employees receive discounted rates on all GSI webinar and short course registrations.
This online course is focused on the quality assurance and quality control of geosynthetics as placed in permanent and/or critical applications. Specifications and testing are emphasized and demonstrated accordingly. It focuses on both the manufactured geosynthetics and on the installation processes. Applications are mainly in the waste containment area, i.e., landfills and surface impoundments, but applicability to ponds/reservoirs, canals, shale gas plays, coal combustion residuals, heap leach pads, etc., are also addressed. Included are the following presentations:
- waste issues, regulations and geosynthetics
- geomembrane manufacturing, specifications and testing
- geomembrane placement and field testing
- geosynthetic clay liners
- geosynthetic drainage systems
- ancillary geosynthetics, clay liners and documentation
This short course will be beneficial to quality control and quality assurance organizations; design and specification engineering firms; representatives of geosynthetic materials manufacturers; installation contractors; owners of facilities; engineering consultants; federal, state and regional agency personnel (both environmental and transportation); and private developers.
The short course costs $750.00 for GSI and GMA members, and $1,000.00 for nonmembers. The course carries 8 professional development hours (PDH).
