REGISTER NOW! GCL Shear Testing Webinar - Presented by Dr. Chris Bareither of Colorado State University - THURS - 2/28/2019 at 10:00 AM (MST)

Dedicated to advancing the use of fabricated geomembranes through education, research, and technology transfer.

WHY?
Factory fabrication reduces field welding, reduces installation time and costs, allows modular construction and provides consistent seam and liner quality.

Educate The Educators (EtE) - Australia

EtE provides specialized, hands-on training and lecture materials to equip

attending lecturers with the tools they need to offer geosynthetics within their

engineering programs. The program includes a laboratory tour, manufacturing

facility tour and practical demonstrations.

Attending lecturers receive instruction, course materials and have continued

access to the instructors as they develop their own programs at both the

UNDERGRADUATE and GRADUATE levels.
