Continuing Education Short Courses

The Western Dredging Association (WEDA) is proud to offer two (2) continuing education short course at the 2021 Dredging Summit & Expo. Both courses will be held at the JW Marriott Tampa on Monday, June 14, 2021.  

For your participation in either of the courses, you will receive a certificate for 4 professional development hours (PDH’s).  

Short Course Title: Managing the 5R’s of Environmental Dredging

Date: June 14, 2021
Time: 8 AM to Noon
Fee: $150

Instructor:
Dr. Mike Palermo, Mike Palermo Consulting 

The 5Rs of Environmental Dredging – Removal, Resuspension, Release, Residuals, and Risk – continue to be important aspects in design and implementation of contaminated sediment remedies. This 4-hour short course provides methods to assess and predict effective removal of sediments by dredging and an understanding of the potential impact of residual and resuspended sediments. The short course will then provide methods to manage the 5Rs including operational approaches and engineered controls to achieve successful projects. The intended audience includes stakeholders (agency personnel, potentially responsible parties, design consultants, and contractors) involved in the evaluation and design of sediment remedies using environmental dredging as a remedy component. Lessons learned from recent case studies will be included for each topic.

The Dredging 101 – “Basics of Dredging, Dredged Material Management and Environmental Considerations” course has been developed and is provided exclusively by the Western Dredging Association (WEDA) for the purpose of helping anyone interested in learning about the basics of dredging and dredged material and environmental considerations in an easy, enjoyable and efficient manner.

The course material was established to give a comprehensive overview of:

  • what dredging is;
  • why it is being performed;
  • how it is being done;
  • what types of equipment are being used;
  • what factors are used to determine the equipment type, including transporting dredged material;
  • what dredged material disposal or placement (e.g., beneficial use) options are available;
  • what are the environmental concerns about dredging and disposal of dredged material;
  • what are the measures to manage potential environmental impacts;
  • what regulations/permits apply to dredging and dredged material disposal or placement;

All attendees will receive a hand-out/syllabus which will serve as a convenient reference manual and which contains handy links to additional resources and information. This course qualifies for 4 Professional Development Hours (PDH’s). Certificates will be issued via email upon request.
