GeoU 2022 - April

TRI’s Spring CQA Training Is Part of GeoU 2022

In-person professional development resumes in April! TRI is proud to offer its renowned CQA training alongside new short courses as part of GeoU 2022, a new style of event taking place in our home city.

GeoU co-locates high-level engineering short courses to strengthen private practice revenue streams and public agency knowledge in sectors such as waste management, stormwater control, sustainability, and soil reinforcement. And, it brings all of these practitioners together daily for networking events.

TRI’s geosynthetics CQA course, taught by Mark Sieracke, P.E., Dr. Jeffrey Kuhn, P.E., and Sam Allen, is joining the GeoU 2022 education program at the Sonesta Bee Cave Hotel, 5 – 8 April 2022 in Austin, Texas. Companies that have sent personnel to the CQA training in the past will find the rate within GeoU is the same while the in-person nature of the event offers significant benefits.

You will also find TRI experts contributing to the other courses. We invite you to learn more about GeoU 2022 and join us in Austin in April!
