With teaching time on many university courses much decreased resulting in a reduction in the practical hands-on experience, and training budgets within companies, as a result of the recession, being pared to the minimum the Geotechnical Academy provides the industry with a much needed training resource.
Their twitter account bio says it all Got the theory but missing the practice? On-the-ground #developement for new & current #geo-professionals. #whattheydidntteachyouatuniversity .
If you are new to the industry, in the early years of your career or just need a refresher and would like to understand some of the more practical aspects of designing an investigation, selecting the most approriate drilling technique or just deciding on what monitoring/sampling equipment to use then why not take a look at what the Geotechncal Academy can offer. Learning is through a mixture of :
- knowledge transfer;
- demonstrations; and
- shared learning.
Typically, each year, there are between two to three course starts, with courses comprising 10 sessions delivered over a 12 month period at a very reasonable rate of £800+vat per delegate.* At the moment the Geotechnical Academy is seeking delegates for their next Course start date in January 2017.
