FIELD CQC/ CQA TRAINING

These two 2-day courses may be taken singly or as a package. They are designed specifically for those who need a detailed understanding of proper CQC and CQA procedures at waste containment facilities.

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

Each course presents material that complements the other. Day 1 focuses on installation of geomembranes, geotextiles, geocomposites, geogrids, and geo-appurtenances. It includes discussion of geomembrane seaming and seam peel and shear testing. Day 2 focuses on the installation of compacted clay and geosynthetic clay liners (GCLs). 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.

GCI-ICP Certification Exam

CQA course students will be allowed to sit for the Geosynthetic Certification Institute-Inspectors Certification Program (GCI-ICP) exams immediately following the CQA courses. All exam-interested students MUST REGISTER with the Geosynthetic Institute (GSI) and pay GSI’s certification fee before the test. TRI does NOT collect this fee.
