Cost

£295 + VAT per delegate

Venue

Equipe Training Offices, Banbury

Please check course location for each date.

Outline

This one day geotechnical training course is developed by the UK's leading Soil and Rock Description expert, Professor David Norbury, and will bring delegates up to speed on the changes within the Standards and provide a detailed approach to soil description practices and techniques. The British Standards (Codes) under which investigations in the UK have been carried out continue to incorporate and mirror the European Standards. UK practice has changed to meet these new requirements and practitioners will learn about them and how to follow compliant soil logging techniques within this course.

Who should attend?

The course is aimed at graduates, new entrants to the industry and practitioners seeking a refresher to enable comprehensive engineering logging of soils. The course is equally relevant to those logging trial pits, boreholes, exposures or samples in the laboratory.
