Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Modules for Contaminated Land Consultants.
One of the core values and aims of ACLCA is to provide relevant, topical and up-to-date training and professional development to its members, so that individuals within member companies can and will maintain and improve the technical and professional standards and skills of member companies.
CPD Module 4- Fill Logging
Who should attend:
This module is for anyone who wants to hone their contaminated soil logging skills.
The description and classification of fill material is an essential skill for contaminated site investigations. This 2 hour workshop will focus on identifying and describing fill material (for example, ash, staining, odorous material or various types of waste) with a practical hands-on component.
It is assumed attendees have a basic understanding of soil description such as that provided in the Soil Science Australia soil logging courses or are familiar with the Unified Soil Classification system (USCS). If attendees don’t have this basic knowledge set, then attendance will provide a basic introduction to how these classifications are applied.
