Exceptional Professional Development

LISA training and CQA of geosynthetics complement and expand opportunities for engineering consulting and design practice. TRI’s CQA Training Week participants will be provided a certificate of course completion, suitable for use in proposals and statements of qualifications for CQC/CQA work. These unique programs provide professional growth and exceptional business development opportunities.

LISA training and CQA Details

LINER INTEGRITY SURVEYS/ASSESSMENTS (LISA)
Electrical leak location (ELL) surveys are the state-of-the-art nondestructive method of locating leaks in installed geomembranes. The Liner Integrity Survey and Assessment (LISA) course teaches the science behind ELL surveys. It provides the most up-to-date information on the various survey methodologies and standards and disseminates the theoretical and practical knowledge required to employ and provide
oversight for ELL methods.

This training course details:

  • How each of the ASTM-based ELL methods works
  • The advantages and limitations of the various ELL methods
  • How to properly prepare a site for an ELL survey
  • How to select the appropriate ELL method for a project
  • What effects the sensitivity and effectiveness of an ELL survey
  • How to create effective project specifications for ELL surveys
  • Real world case studies of ELL application

This course is ideal for design engineers, CQA firms, site owners and regulators interested in specifying and employing ELL.

ELL Specification and Oversight Certification
This training program qualifies individuals to:

  • Advise on facility design for ELL applications
  • Write ELL project specifications
  • Create blind leaks in lining systems
  • Provide oversight for ELL surveys

After the LISA class, a proctored exam will be offered to individuals seeking certification.

CONSTRUCTION QA/QC FOR GEOSYNTHETIC INSTALLATIONS

This Construction QA/QC for Geosynthetic Installations course focuses on installation of geomembranes, geotextiles, geocomposites, geogrids, and geo-appurtenances. It includes demonstrations of geomembrane seaming and seam peel and shear testing. This 1-day course that may be taken singly or as a package with another 1-day course on Construction QA/QC for Compacted Clay Liner & GCL Installation. Each course presents material that complements the other. They are designed specifically for those who need a detailed understanding of proper CQC and CQA procedures at waste containment facilities.

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. Additionally, a tour of TRI’s Geosynthetic Testing and Research Laboratories will support class curriculum through test demonstrations, details on some TRI internal R&D projects, and discussion of other relevant topics. The courses provide ideal preparation for the Geosynthetic Certification Institute’s Inspectors Certification Program (GCI-ICP) exam.

Gain comprehensive understanding of:

  • Preparing CQC/CQA plans
  • Reviewing CQC/CQA plans
  • Performing CQC/CQA observations and tests
  • Reviewing field CQC/CQA procedures

CONSTRUCTION QA/QC FOR COMPACTED CLAY LINER & GCL INSTALLATION

This Construction QA/QC for Compacted Clay Liner & GCL Installation focuses on the installation of compacted clay and geosynthetic clay liners (GCLs).

GEOSYNTHETIC CERTIFICATION INSTITUTE – INSPECTORS CERTIFICATION PROGRAM (GCI-ICP) EXAM

CQA course students will be allowed to sit for the Geosynthetic Certification Institute-Inspectors Certification Program (GCI-ICP) exams immediately following the CQA courses. All exam-interested students MUST REGISTER with the Geosynthetic Institute (GSI) and pay GSI’s certification fee before the test. TRI does NOT collect this fee. Contact GSI (+1 610 522 8440) for more information.
