BESPOKE EUROCODE TRAINING PROGRAMME COMMISSIONED

Surepath Training are pleased to announce that they have been commissioned to deliver a bespoke programme of Eurocode related courses for a contractor at their offices.  The course will include elements of EC0, EC1, EC2, EC3 and EC7.   Starting from a permanent works perspective, design requirements to satisfy the codes will be addressed using a combination of presentations, worked examples, and discussions.  With the aid of a specialist temporary works designer, the course will later move on to examine the application of the codes to temporary works problems selected by the client.

If you have a group of people needing training in this or any other skill area then contact us to discuss how we may be able to design a course to suit your needs and add value to your service provision.

ANOTHER SET OF GEOTECHNICAL COURSES COMMISSIONED

Building on the success of a programme of geotechnical design related courses in 2015 and 2016 for a regional site investigation company, Surepath Training are now delivering geotechnical training to another site investigation company in the area.  The course will be provided through a series of three mentoring style workshops made bespoke to the needs of the client.   The content is largely design related and includes a reprise of basic soil mechanics, ground modelling and parametric assessment issues, and aspects of foundation design, retaining walls, slopes and earthworks.

If you have a group of people needing training in this or any other skill area then contact us to discuss how we may be able to design a course to suit your needs and add value to your service provision.

LAST CALL FOR COURSES IN MAY 2016

This is the last call for the following courses in May:

Structural Concrete Design to EC2 (£395 + VAT per delegate)

Due to demand dates for this 2 day course have been amended and it is now running non-consecutively in Chesterfield on 20 May & 9 June 2016. This practically biased course will provide delegates with the opportunity to learn how to apply EC2 in design, using numerous worked examples. The course will begin with an overview of the Eurocodes and EC2 in particular, before looking at the basis of structural design to EC2. The main focus of the course will be on the Eurocodes and their use in design practice, using beams, slabs, columns, shear walls and foundations as design topics to explore and illustrate the application of EC2.

Ground Risk Management for Managers & Architects (£220 + VAT per delegate)

By its nature the ground is variable and project issues commonly arise from not fully appreciating the hazards it presents. This one day course is running in Chesterfield on 24 May 2016 and is aimed more at those leading, managing or coordinating projects than geotechnical engineers. Its fundamental aim is to develop a core understanding of how ground risk can be managed to enhance project delivery. It will cover the major types and impacts of ground hazard, before looking at how ground risk can be assessed and managed. The importance of desk studies and phased ground investigations in hazard mapping and the risk management process will be addressed.

Please contact us asap if you are interested in either course. Discounts are available for group bookings or delegates attending more than one course. Please call or email us to reserve your place on a course.

BESPOKE SLOPE STABILITY COURSE

We are pleased to announce another addition to our expanding list of bespoke course delivery. This time it had a twist, in that we ran our standard slope stability course as an in-house provision for a consultancy in North Wales rather than bespoking the content. Despite the small number of delegates needing training we were able to offer a cost-effective service based on our substantial experience at delivering our courses to meet the diverse needs of our Clients. Feedback from the course was excellent too, and we are looking forward to working again with the Client in due course.

If you have a group of people needing training in whatever skill area then contact us to discuss how we may be able to design a course to suit your needs and add value to your service provision.
