Technical Seminars & Training
Alpha technical and/or training seminars come to your office or group function. Each relates to a Alpha core competency (geotechnical, environmental, drilling, construction materials testing).
We will specifically tailor courses on topics of your choice, as well as offering hands-on tours and demonstrations in our own office and laboratory.
Each is designed to meet requirements of your professional development hours (PDH) or continuing education units (CEU) required by registered engineers, geologists and architects. All are formatted to meet American Institute of Architects (AIA) requirements, as self-reported events.
Geotechnical Engineering Seminar:
Provides information to architects, civil and structural engineers, developers and owners in determining proper foundation systems. Our seminars focus on the differences and characteristics of local geology and the impact to design. Suitable for entry level to the most experienced audience, we discuss potential soil induced movements, and the damage it can cause to structures. Methods commonly used during construction to reduce the potential for post-construction soil movement are explored.
Construction Materials Testing and Engineering Seminar:
Provides information to architects, civil and structural engineers, developers and owners to insure plans and specifications are being followed during construction. Alpha seminars focus on the different categories of material testing and the corresponding reports, calling out "things to look for" as a project progresses.
Environmental Engineering Seminar:
Provides information for developers and owners, and the architects, land planners, civil engineers and financial institutions that are involved in a project. Seminar focuses on Phase I and Phase II environmental site assessments, timing, and the corresponding reports. Asbestos and Lead Surveys are also discussed.
Training - Client Directed:
Alpha can provided specific, targeted training sessions on any area within - or related to - our core competencies. Examples include asbestos management, environmental regulatory reporting, use of maturity meters in concrete testing, pavement design parameters, safety training, quality control plans, and more. Tell us what you need, and we can create the program.
