Ground-Gas Protection: Installation & Verification
This is a highly practical one day workshop which takes a look at best practice and the latest CIRIA C735 guidance on the verification of gas protection measures.
It is designed for on-site technicians who wish to keep up to speed with the requirements of good membrane installation practice and gain an understanding of the verification process to achieve a fit for purpose end product, and a safe property.
Who is this ground gas protection installation course for?
Job roles that could benefit from this training include: operatives and technicians, validators, verification/inspection engineers, technicians who have not already been formally trained.
If you do not work in a technicians role but still need to keep up to speed with the latest standards and good practice to ensure safe and successful implementation of general ground gas protection, then you might find the “Ground-Gas Protection Measures: Getting It Right” theory based one day seminar more suitable.
