CQA Training Details

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
