TRI CQA TRAINING COURSE AT GEOU ATX 2021
Location: Sonesta Bee Cave Austin Hotel | 12525 Bee Cave Parkway | Austin, TX 78738, USA
Exceptional Professional Development
For more than 15 years, engineers, regulators, and other waste management professionals have come to Austin, Texas to attend the geosynthetic containment system CQA training course developed by TRI Environmental. The spring 2021 courses will be combined as a single, two-day course: “QA/QC of Geosynthetic and Compacted Clay Lining Systems.”
QA/QC of Geosynthetic and Compacted Clay Lining Systems
The QA/QC of Geosynthetic and Compacted Clay Lining Systems course follows the program TRI has used in previous years. The focus remains on the installation of all geosynthetics and compacted clay liners used in containment systems. The first day (April 21) will focus on installation of geomembranes, geotextiles, geocomposites, geogrids, and geo-appurtenances. It includes discussion of geomembrane seaming and seam peel and shear testing. The second day (April 22) will focus on the installation of compacted clay and geosynthetic clay liners. Special emphasis will be given to establishing rationale and standard operating procedures for field inspections, documentation of test and visual observations, and implementation of CQA plans. A broad appreciation for the manufacture and installation of containment facility materials will be provided. A tour of TRI’s geosynthetic and geotechnical labs is included.
Gain comprehensive understanding of:
- Preparing CQC/CQA plans
- Reviewing CQC/CQA plans
- Performing CQC/CQA observations and tests
- Reviewing field CQC/CQA procedures
