Hundreds of engineers, regulators, and affiliated CQA personnel in waste management, mining and other containment sectors have taken TRI Environmental's geosynthetics CQA training courses.

The courses will next be presented April 18 - 22 in a live, virtual format and half-day morning sessions. The CQA training can be used as preparation for the Geosynthetic Certification Institute–Inspectors Certification Program (GCI-ICP) exams, which will be offered on the afternoon of April 26.

This is essential professional development
for new and experienced personnel in waste management, landfill construction, CQA and affiliated sectors requiring geosynthetic containment technologies.
