This course is held online over 3 days on the following schedule (All times in Eastern Time Zone):

9:30 am to 5:30 pm Eastern (Will include the usual breaks)

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Apply soil mechanics principles to earthwork design and construction
  • Consider environmental factors in earthworks
  • Interpret geotechnical reports, environmental assessments, specifications, guidelines and standards pertaining to the design and construction of earthworks
  • Optimize your choices of construction technology, equipment and procedure

In this three-day course, you will obtain an overview of principles and techniques for the design and construction of earthworks. You will learn how to address these issues through presentations, case studies and discussions with an expert.

Specific topics include soil characterization, interpretation of soil reports, construction and quality control of earthworks, dewatering of ground materials, the impact of groundwater and other environmental issues, and soil excavation. Case studies will be used to help you better understand course material.
