NASTT’s Cured-In-Place Pipe Good Practices Course
Description: Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) technology is an effective trenchless pipeline rehabilitation method that may help to address many of your city’s water and 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.
Course Objective: The CIPP course provides an in-depth overview of wastewater mainline and lateral pipe rehabilitation using CIPP from planning and design to job completion.

7.5 PDHs or .75 CEUs are available for this course.

NASTT’s Laterals Good Practices Course
Description: Millions of sewer laterals — the portion of sewer networks that connect individual properties to the public sewer network — exist throughout the United States and elsewhere. Many laterals have not been maintained and as a result, allow a significant amount of inflow and
infiltration (I/I) into sewer systems, which can lead to sanitary sewer overflows, increased costs and damage. Consequently, there is a compelling need to solve I/I problems of sewer laterals.
Course Objective: This course offers a clear understanding of the problems and relevant issues unique to the private lateral portion of the collection system network, explains available options for inspection, evaluation and repair of sewer laterals and address the financial and legal issues that affect the means by which necessary work can be accomplished.

6.5 PDHs or .65 CEUs are available for this course.

NASTT’s Horizontal Directional Drilling Good Practices Course
Description: If you have horizontal directional drilling questions or concerns, then we have the
answers for you! The HDD Good Practices course presents a unique opportunity for you to learn the key elements of a successful HDD project from planning to job completion, as well as to meet with a number of HDD specialists in the field who can help answer your questions and concerns not outlined in the course agenda.
Course Objective: The HDD Good Practices 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.

8.5 PDHs or .85 CEUs are available for this course.

NASTT’s Pipe Bursting Good Practices Course
Description: Pipe bursting is the perfect no-dig process to replace an existing line with a completely new, larger pipe — without excavating. This construction technique is recognized as one of the only methods of trenchless rehabilitation that replaces an existing line with a completely new pipe, providing a total pipe replacement and allows for the replacement of an existing pipe with a new line of equal or larger diameter — to maintain or increase flow capabilities.
Course Objective: The NASTT Pipe Bursting Good Practices Course provides an in-depth overview of pipe bursting and covers four topic areas: (1) the types, methods and application of pipe bursting; (2) planning and preliminary design of a pipe bursting job; (3) design and construction considerations; and (4) troubleshooting and problem solving.

6.5 PDHs or .65 CEUs are available for this course.

NASTT’s New Installation Methods Good Practices: Auger Boring, Pipe Ramming, Pipe Jacking and Pilot Tube Method Course
Description: This course will cover the following: the 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, pipe materials; ways to track where the pipe is located underground; Installation and jacking forces and ways to reduce these forces; the best method to use through actual case studies, which are used to illustrate what can go wrong if the project is not designed for success.
Course Objective: The New Installation Methods Course addresses trenchless methods commonly used to install new pipe and casing. These methods include: (1) auger boring; (2) pipe ramming; (3) pipe jacking; and (4) the pilot tube method. Examples and case studies will be presented to assist attendees in determining which method is preferable to use under various project conditions and requirements.

7.5 PDHs or .75 CEUs are available for this course.
