Watercourse crossings in Alberta are regulated mainly by five pieces of legislation. This course presents the intent of these standards and their key features. As people learn what the requirements are for specific watercourse types, they will be better prepared to choose the correct crossings, install them competently and ultimately reduce your legal liability. The size of crossing required is often underestimated - resulting in crossing failure with the first spring runoff. This causes both environmental damage and a direct financial loss. In order to design the crossing to handle the peak flows, one must understand the characteristics of watershed above the crossing. This course will provide the industrial user with an understanding of hydrological factors that affect the crossing design. This will improve communication between the engineers and reduce crossing failures.
This course is delivered in partnership with Northern Lakes College and Woodland Operations Learning Foundation (WOLF https://www.w-o-l-f.ca/ )
Delivery and content is designed for forest resource development and management agencies, including government, utility, and petroleum and wood sectors.
Contractors, employees, supervisors and recreational forest users of all educational backgrounds will learn about science, regulation and best practice from these courses.
Instructors are trained, experienced educators and subject matter experts.
Training is delivered where and when you want in classroom, field, online or combined formats
For face to face delivery, small classes of 15 to 25 people over 6 to 8 hours are normal. Larger groups may be accommodated with concurrent and/or sequential sessions or as seminars or even conferences.
Competence may be examined and certificates of completion are issued for satisfactory test results.
Most courses are eligible for Continuing Competence Credit for Alberta Professional Forest Technologists and Foresters.
Standards meet or exceed third party certification requirements for CSA, FSC or SFI.
Courses may be modified to meet local needs for time, regulation or other constraints, but this may affect certification outcomes and cost.
Courses are 6 hours in length.
