Manhole Assessment and Rehabilitation: Canadian Construction Association (CCA) Gold Seal Accredited Course

Location: Mississauga Grand, 35  Brunel Road, Mississauga.

Canadian Construction Association (CCA) Gold Seal Accredited Course 

This workshop presents the inspection and trenchless rehabilitation methods for maintenance of holes. It addresses the growing problem of manhole deterioration. Inflow and infiltration solutions have been discussed extensively for sanitary and storm sewers. However, these measures may be limited if manhole chambers are neglected. Consequently, an increasing amount of attention has been paid to the rehabilitation challenges facing sewer maintenance holes. As in other aspects of the sewer systems where trenchless technologies are replacing excavation, this seminar will highlight the inspection and trenchless rehabilitation methods for maintenance holes.

Horizontal Directional Drilling Fundamentals - Design to Construction (May 27-30, 2019 | Four Day Field School)

The course combines classroom study with field practice. Lectures will provide details on surface and subsurface investigations, drilling fluids, project planning, design, construction and QA/QC, while the field training component will include subsurface investigations, drill fluid testing and borepath drilling using state-of-the-art HDD equipment.

During the 4-day course, participants will learn how to take into account the surface and subsurface information for project planning, design, drill fluids and tool selection, as well as how to operate the HDD equipment and monitor critical parameters (alignment, fluid pressures, pull loads) during borepath drilling operation.

This joint course by the CATT and Fleming College combines both organizations’ expertise, encompassing HDD design along with construction, and takes advantage of Fleming’s unique training program in drilling.
