The North American Society for Trenchless Technology is set to hold its New Installation Methods Good Practices Course June 28-29 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. ET each day.

The course is geared to address numerous trenchless methods commonly used in North America to install new pipe and conduit. This will include auger boring, pipe ramming, pipe jacking and pilot tube methods. The target audience is contractors, municipal and utility employees, consulting engineers, inspectors and industry practitioners.

The New Installation Good Practices Guidelines course provides an in-depth overview along with case studies covering many topics:

• Trenchless methods used for grade and alignment control and guidance;
• The limitations and advantages of each method discussed;
• The steps you need to follow to know the underground;
• How to establish the invert for a proper launch;
• The history, sizes, equipment options and process of excavating through different ground types and pipe materials;
• Ways to track where the pipe is located underground; and
• Installation and jacking forces and ways to reduce these forces.

This NASTT virtual course provides an excellent opportunity for professionals in the field to expand their understanding of trenchless technology. It will include real-time Q&A opportunities with expert instructors, a digital course manual to take notes and follow along during the class and Continuing Education Units provided by the Trenchless Technology Center at Louisiana Tech University.
