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

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

The Fabricated Geomembrane Institute (FGI) is offering a one-day Installers Training Workshop on Thursday, January 16, 2020 from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

The workshop will train field installers on seaming, patching, attachments, and testing of pre-fabricated/flexible geomembranes, such as Woven Coated Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PP), PVC, and Reinforced Products (PP/PE/EIA).  The testing will include Air Channel, Air Lance, Vacuum Box, and Tensiometer Testing.

The cost of the workshop is $200 per person.  However, FGI Members can send their installers to the workshop for FREE.  FGI installer membership is only $1,000 so if you are sending five (5) or more, please consider joining the FGI.  A continental breakfast, lunch, and morning/afternoon snacks will be provided.
