NASTT Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) Good Practices  Course

Course Details:

NASTT is pleased to co-sponsor its CIPP  course with NASTT- BC Chapter on February 26, 2019 from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm at the Raddison Hotel Vancouver Airport in Richmond, BC.

NASTT's Mission: Quality Education and Training Programs:

It is NASTT’s mission to advance trenchless technology and to promote its benefits for the public and the environment by offering quality educational training programs on various trenchless methods. Our instructors are experts and respected leaders in their fields of expertise. NASTT will deliver a comprehensive, consensus-based course outline that is non-commercial and academically oriented. NASTT intstructors are experts and respected leaders in their field of expertise. 

*Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are offered for attendee participation.

Course Objectives:

Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) technology is an effective trenchless pipeline rehabilitation method that may help address many of your city’s water wastewater problems. CIPP is one of the most widely used and accepted pipeline rehabilitation methods. It significantly reduces infiltration and ex-filtration. CIPP is cost effective and increases flow capacity. And because it is trenchless, traffic congestion and site disruption are significantly reduced.

NASTT Course Instructors:

Chris Macey is the Senior Technical Director, Water Infrastructure Management for AECOM and their global Technical Practice Network leader for the Condition Assessment and Rehabilitation of Linear Infrastructure. Chris has worked on the application of trenchless and minimum excavation technologies to rehabilitate underground infrastructure in cities across North America for over 30 years. Chris has had hands-on experience in the application of CIPP technology for over 25 years. 

Kaleel Rahaim is a graduate Chemical Engineer from Mississippi State University. He has experience in many different aspects of Engineering such as project and process engineering and has been involved in the thermoset polymer industry for over 30 years.
