LISA TRAINING, DAYS 1 & 2
A Liner Integrity Survey (Electrical Leak Location) is a state-of-the-art, nondestructive method of locating leaks in installed geomembranes. LIS equipment, rooted in geophysical measurement techniques, tests exposed and soil or water-covered geomembranes. TRI’s training course disseminates the theoretical and hands-on knowledge required to perform and control the quality of LIS methods and equipment.
The course includes classroom and field training in multiple on-site test cells which simulate a variety of installed geomembrane conditions.
The Liner Integrity Surveys/Assessments (LISA) class provides the most up-to-date information on survey methods and standards (e.g., ASTM). It is ideal for companies interested in adding this service to their business lines, design engineers, CQA firms, site owners, and other stakeholders in geomembrane-utilizing sectors.
A multi-part certification process has been designed for survey performers. Graduates of this program:
• Understand the basis of geo-electrical leak testing
• Select the most appropriate LISA methodology under a variety of site circumstances
• Are able to perform each LISA method
• Know how to generate LISA reports
• Have on-going access to the resources of TRI as they begin to perform surveys for clients
The course, offered by the TRI-Corp Liner Integrity Center (T-CLIC), assists those who are interested in adding LISA to their business, as well as those who review LISA results for regulatory or client approval.
A proctored Level 2 ELIS Certification Exam will be offered for interested participants.
FIELD CQC / CQA TRAINING, DAYS 3 & 4
These two 1-day courses may be taken singly or as a package. They are designed specifically for those who need a detailed understanding of proper CQC and CQA procedures at waste containment facilities.
The courses provide ideal preparation for the Geosynthetic Certification Institute’s Inspectors Certification Program (GCI-ICP) exam.
Gain comprehensive understanding of:
• Preparing CQC/CQA plans
• Reviewing CQC/CQA plans
• Performing CQC/CQA observations and tests
• Reviewing field CQC/CQA procedures
Each course presents material that complements the other. Day 1 focuses on installation of geomembranes, geotextiles, geocomposites, geogrids, and geo-appurtenances. It includes demonstrations of geomembrane seaming and seam peel and shear testing. Day 2 focuses on the installation of compacted clay and geosynthetic clay liners (GCLs). Special emphasis will be given to establishing rationale and standard operating procedures for field inspections, documentation of test and visual observations, and implementation of CQA plans. A broad appreciation for the manufacture and installation of containment facility materials will be provided. Additionally, a tour of TRI’s Geosynthetic Testing and Research Laboratories will support class curriculum through test demonstrations, details on some TRI internal R&D projects, and discussion of other relevant topics. read more
