Monday, 28 October 2024 8:00 AM - Friday, 1 November 2024 3:30 PM CDT

More than 1000 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 28 October - 1 November 2024 in a live, virtual format through half-day morning sessions (US Central time zone). The CQA training can be used as preparation for the Geosynthetic Certification Institute–Inspectors Certification Program (GCI-ICP) exams, which will be offered online on the afternoon of November 1.

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

Courses may be taken individually. Government rates available. NOTE: The GCI-ICP Exam requires an additional application and fee paid directly to the Geosynthetic Institute (+1 610 522 8440, www.geosynthetic-institute.org). Please contact GSI for information.
