Exceptional Professional Development

LISA training, Slope Stability Of Containment Systems course, and CQA of geosynthetics complement and expand opportunities for engineering consulting and design practice. CQA 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, Slope Stability Of Containment Systems course, and CQA Details

LINER INTEGRITY SURVEYS/ASSESSMENTS (LISA)
A Liner Integrity Survey (Electrical Leak Location) is a state-of-the-art, nondestructive method of locating leaks in installed geomembranes. LISA equipment, rooted in geophysical measurement techniques, tests exposed and soil or water-covered geomembranes. TRI’s training course disseminates the theoretical and practical knowledge required to employ and specify the quality of LISA methods and equipment.

The course includes a classroom example of a test cell process which simulates the ELL testing process.

The Liner Integrity Surveys/Assessments (LISA) class provides the most up-to-date information on survey methods and standards (e.g., ASTM). It is ideal for design engineers, CQA firms, site owners, and regulators interested in specifying and employing this service.

A multi-part certification process has been designed for survey performers. Graduates of this program:

  • Understand the basis of geo-electrical leak testing
  • Select the most appropriate LISA methodology under a variety of site circumstances
  • Are able to perform each LISA method
  • Know how to generate LISA reports
  • Have on-going access to the resources of TRI as they begin to perform surveys for clients

The course, offered by the TRI-Corp Liner Integrity Center (T-CLIC), assists those who are interested in adding LISA to their business, as well as those who review LISA results for regulatory or client approval.

A proctored Level 2 ELL Certification Exam will be offered for interested participants.

SLOPE STABILITY OF CONTAINMENT SYSTEMS

This course is specifically targeted to those persons who have a need to understand and specify interface friction and direct shear tests-and who use these results in subsequent design, construction, and monitoring performance of containment structures.

The presenters, one from a third party laboratory and one with experience as a geoenvironmental consultant and now working as an owner’s engineer, will address a broad range of issues related to laboratory testing and design of containment structures. This course will be presented in two parts, each of which complements the other, to provide maximum benefit to the attendees. The first part will focus on slope stability of containment structures including an overview of sources of interface strength, the difference between peak and large displacement strength for design, the relation between normal stress and failure envelopes, and slope stability calculations.

The second part will provide an explanation of ASTM D5321, including detailed discussion of test parameters. Procedural implications of specimen anchorage, normal stress application, machine friction and calibration, rate of shear, and reporting mechanisms will be discussed. In addition, limitations of the ASTM D5321 test will be explored, with explanation of alternative tests including torsional shear, tilt table, and double interface shear. Special emphasis will be placed on specifying a meaningful shear test that will best serve the user’s project requirements. The forensic analysis of several slope failure case studies will be presented to help relate the material presented during the course with real-world applications.

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). This 1-day course that may be taken singly or as a package with another 1-day course on Construction QA/QC for Geosynthetic Installations. 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.

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.

LISA CERTIFICATION EXAM – LEVEL 2 ELIS

A proctored Level 2 ELIS Certification Exam will be offered.
