Erosion & Sediment Control Hands-On Field Installer Workshop - November 18-19, 2015

Auburn University Erosion & Sediment Control Testing Facility

1600 Lee Rd. 151, Opelika, AL 36804



Seminar Topic

This 1.5 day event will focus on providing classroom and hands-on training geared for participants involved in the installation of construction site erosion and sediment control practices.  A half-day classroom component will cover a wide variety of topics that will be reinforced with field installations during the full day field component.  The field component will be held at the Auburn University – Erosion and Sediment Control Testing Facility and will include trainee participation to install erosion and sediment control practices in a typical field setting and will include channelized flow demonstrations to show the effectiveness of properly installed practices.  Participants will gain knowledge in governing compliance regulations, leadership tactics, and hands-on installation and implementation tools to provide efficient and effective erosion and sediment controls.  To provide an interactive and personalized learning environment, registration is limited to 50 participants.  A fee of $450.00 per person should be mailed with your registration.  Participants are encouraged to register and attend the field day.  Payment may be made online, by phone, or fax if paying with Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, or government agency purchase order. Registrants are reminded that registration is not complete until payment is made. The registration fee includes handout materials, break refreshments, lunch and a certificate of participation.
