New inspector course offered

December 9th, 2011 / By: / Updates

The Geosynthetic Certification Institute (GCI) now has a new Inspector Certification Program (ICP) for mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) walls, berms and slopes using geosynthetic reinforcement.

The next course and examination* is March 14, 2012. This new one-day course and subsequent certification is focused on the inspection, monitoring, and maintenance of MSE walls, berms, and slopes reinforced with geogrids and geotextiles.

Courses such as this are necessary due to the number of current problems, including excessive deformation and actual collapse. The course focuses on all aspects and details related to these reinforced structures:

  • introduction and overview
  • responsibilities before construction
  • responsibilities during construction
  • responsibilities after construction
  • long-term monitoring
  • remediation of MSE structures

If you are interested in becoming certified as a GCI-ICP inspector for MSE walls, berms, and slopes, visit the website: www.geosynthetic-institute.org/applications2.htm

*Applications must be approved prior to taking the examination.
