The HDD Good Practices Guidelines course provides an in-depth overview of Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) and covers six topics: (1) operation and application; (2) equipment and materials; (3) planning, including surface and geological investigations, utility surveys, bore planning, and regulations and permitting; (4) jobsite safety; (5) risk reduction, trouble shooting and mitigation; and (6) design.

 NASTT Course Instructors:

Matthew Wallin is a Partner and Senior Project Manager with Bennett Trenchless Engineers located in Folsom, California. Matthew holds both Bachelor's and Master’s degrees in Civil Engineering from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. Matthew has focused his practice on geotechnical engineering and the design and construction management of new pipeline projects using horizontal directional drilling, microtunneling, open-shield pipe jacking, pipe ramming, and auger boring.

Dr.Jason Lueke, P.Eng. has nearly 20 years of experience in consulting, construction, education, and research focusing specifically on trenchless engineering and construction. Prior to rejoining Associated Engineering in 2012, he served three and a half years as an Assistant Professor and Senior Sustainability Scientist in the Del E. Webb School of Construction at Arizona State University teaching soil mechanics and researching trenchless methods, infrastructure utility design, and buried infrastructure management. Jason has participated as an engineer or contractor on a variety of trenchless projects involving pipe bursting, horizontal directional drilling, cured in place pipe relining, auger boring, pipe ramming, and tunneling.

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. He recently retired from being the Business Manager, Pipeline Remediation Polymers for the Thermoset Resins Division of Interplastic Corporation.
