The renowned geosynthetics CQA Week courses from TRI Environmental will be offered in a live, virtual format November 28 - December 2. The half-day morning sessions can be used as preparation for the Geosynthetic Certification Institute–Inspectors Certification Program (GCI-ICP) exams, which will be offered on Dec. 2 (afternoon). This is essential professional development for new and experienced personnel in waste management, landfill construction, CQA and affiliated sectors requiring geosynthetic containment technologies.
