Field Workshops

We find that online training is the most effective method to deliver theoretical content, however, the practical competencies require a hands-on approach.

We provide field workshops in various locations within BC. Topics include site and soil assessment, inspections and maintenance, pipe camera workshops, and orientations to technologies in common use.

Occasionally, we provide opportunities to participate in "real world" installations, inspections, maintenance service of large flow systems or site/soil assessments.

Maintenance and Inspection Practicum. We currently offer a maintenance and inspection practicum opportunity. Jim provides one-on-one support for your assessment of a sewerage system at Nanoose Bay, BC. A pipe camera is provided. This is intended for one or two participants per session. You can anticipate spending at least four hours on site, followed by your creation of formal reports and drawings with desktop review by Jim. You pick the date, subject to Jim's availability.

Site and Soil Assessment Field Workshop. The next field day is scheduled for November 19, 2022, at a 40 acre site in Qualicum Beach, Vancouver Island. The site provides variable soils and differing conditions - providing an opportunity to assess a range of vertical separation depths and soil types. Educational goals will focus on the BC Sewerage System Standard Practice Manual soils characterization standards and guidelines. Simply stated, we focus on 'how to complete test pit logs in accordance with the SPM'. With reinforcement of SPM standards for vertical separation, system selection and loading rates. We will also conduct permeability testing by conventional perc tests, permeameters and double ring infiltrometer. Instructors include Jim Andersen, AScT., ROWP and Ian Ralston, P.L.Eng.  Fees are $250 plus GST.
