Geosynthetica’s Portuguese-language publication, Geosynthetica.net.br, has organized the 2nd Brazil Workshop on Geosynthetic Installation Quality. The event will be held April 18 – 19 at the Engineering Institute in São Paulo, Brazil.
Participants will also have an opportunity on April 20 to earn IAGI (International Association of Geosynthetic Installers) certification.
NOTE: Participation is capped at 40, with 30 of the slots reserved for welders. If you have colleagues right for the event, be sure to get them involved now while tickets are available.
Two types of registration are available:
- Student – Take part in theory/classroom and hands-on practice education
- Observer – Take part in theoretical/classroom education but only observe hands-on training
Each student in the registered welder category must bring their welding equipment (welding machines by thermofusion and extrusion).
Expert instruction will be provided by engineers Luduik Rosales, Indiara Giugni and Julio Ferreira.
The professional development opportunity is aimed at welding technicians, heads of geosynthetics installation field teams, consulting engineers (who benefit from knowing how design and installation inform one another), and companies/facility owners that contract installation services.
Sectors of benefit include mining, landfills, water and wastewater processing and containment, and other geomembrane-needing sectors.
