This workshop focuses on using real life examples to demonstrate how inspection methods are used to assess the condition of existing marine structures in order to develop a repair & maintenance program necessary to meet operational requirements.

Course Outline
After participating in this course, you will be able to:
€¢ develop the knowledge to evaluate and undertake condition inspections of existing marine structures
€¢ apply the materials and methods/strategies used in the repair and rehabilitation of concrete, steel and timber marine structures
€¢ develop repair and rehabilitation programs for existing marine structures by gaining practical ideas from case studies

Repairs and rehabilitation of structures subjected to a marine environment are common practice. Various components of a structure typically begin to deteriorate soon after it has been constructed. Marine structures can also suffer physical damage as a result of overloading, ship impacts, adverse weather conditions, and environmental effects.  

This workshop focuses on using real life examples to demonstrate how inspection methods are used to assess the condition of existing marine structures in order to develop a repair/rehabilitation and maintenance program necessary to meet operational requirements and to maintain or extend the remaining service life an existing marine structure.

Objective To provide the knowledge required for developing and implementing suitable repair and rehabilitation programs for existing marine structures.

Who Should Attend Project managers,  design engineers, civil and structural engineers, construction engineers, geotechnical engineers, consulting engineers, managers of maintenance, repair and rehabilitation of marine structures, inspectors, technicians and technologists, and contractors. This seminar will be of benefit to government personnel and private sector organizations interested in marine structures.

Special Feature You receive practical, real-world information on design considerations, construction techniques, inspection, repair and rehabilitation of existing marine structures, that will builds your confidence and competence. You find your professional concerns answered in the case studies presented in the workshop.

Here are some reviews of the training vendor.
The course was very well presented and the course instructor was absolutely amazing.
Reviewed by 2013
Our instructor, Stephen Lamming, was outstanding and a true expert in his field. He was able to complement the technical air monitoring information with practical real life examples which was highly beneficial. He is an excellent communicator and was highly interactive with the course attendees. This course was recommended to me because Stephen Lamming does an outstanding job. I was very impressed with this course and have subsequently recommended it to my colleagues.
