This course is intended to complement existing courses offered by the AGS. The skills developed in the Soil and Rock Logging course are directly relevant to this course and the skills developed in this course are directly relevant to the successful completion of the Geology for Engineers and Engineering Geology courses.

Who Should Attend

The course is intended for a broad range of technical staff that are called upon to visit sites for geotechnical purposes. Those who will be benefit most from the course are graduate to intermediate level geotechnical engineers, geologists, geo-technicians and civil engineers.

Each course will be limited to about 16 attendees. Additional dates will be considered if interest exceeds capacity. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis upon receipt of payment.

Course Calendar And Venues

Courses will be run in public open spaces in each of the cities where the course will take place. Sites are selected where there is good range of appropriate geotechnical features; where there is shelter to escape inclement weather and toilet facilities.

Lead Presenter

Anthony Bowden will lead the courses around the country. Anthony is a member of the AGS and a Chartered Engineering Geologist with over 30 years experience in civil engineering, mining and mineral exploration. Anthony will be supported by a number of leading local practitioners to ensure that the trainer to student ratio does not exceed about 1:8.

Cost

The course will be conducted over one day at each location and will cost $495 for AGS members and $695 for non-members. Morning tea and lunch will be provided. If a course has to be cancelled and cannot be rearranged close to the planned date, all fees would be returned to the students.

CPD

The course is approved by the Australian Geomechanics Society and recognised by Engineers Australia as equivalent to 8 hours of CPD.
