The Trenchless Technology Center (TTC) at Louisiana Tech University in conjunction with the ASCE’S Utility Engineering and Surveying Institute (UESI) have teamed to hold the fourth TTC Utility Investigation School.
This short course – held at Louisiana Tech in Ruston, Louisiana, from Feb. 25 to March 1 – will give practitioners the knowledge and tools to provide competent utility investigations in accordance with accepted national standards (ASCE 38-02) and to defend against claims through this knowledge and its documentation. This school is a 40-hour course for those professionals stamping ASCE 38-compliant utility mapping deliverables and their direct reports such as lead CAD and field staff. Approximately 100 persons have already attended this class.
In addition to the classroom lectures, practical sessions will be held where participants will be offered hands-on experience with the GPR, PCL, and more. This five-day school will be taught by the foremost experts in the geophysics and subsurface utility engineering field. Course director is Dr. Tom Iseley, associate director of international operations, TTC and the primary instructor is Jim Anspach, P.G. (r), Dist.M.ASCE, global senior principal of utility engineering and survey at Cardno Inc.
At the end of this short course, students will receive four CEUs – 40 PDHs and a certificate of completion. The course is intended to become part of a Subsurface Utility Engineering Professional Certification at some point in the future.
Registration for the course is $1,595 and there is a 10 percent discount for registering three or more attendees from same company. ASCE-UESI members get a discounted registration.
