The lecture room learning will be facilitated by qualified trainer David Brett, but will include engagement activities and an assessment questionnaire involving other trainers. The format of this phase will depend on the number of learners and will be facilitated in groups led by other experienced GHD/WTA personnel assigned to each group. In this way we will encourage involvement of learners in asking and answering questions.

Attendance at the forum will count to the training outcome as will the site tour on Friday, with a debriefing of trainees after the inspection to review dam safety related issues/questions.
GHD/WTA supports ANCOLD in promoting safe operation of all dams and particularly in focusing on tailings dams and our involvement in this training is aimed at minimizing cost. The charge per person (inc. GST) is a significant discount to the normal fee due to the expected number of learners compared to the normal training format used with individual sites.
COST $895 INC GST
