We are pleased to announce the first of our events for the new year:

• SuDS: standards, guidance and design tools – 5 February 2019
• Coastal processes and management – 12-13 March 2019
• Coastal structures – 14 March 2019
• River modelling and drainage assessment for flood risk management – 26-27 March 2019

Registration is now open for these courses and further information can be found on our training website.


SuDS: standards, guidance and design tools – 5 February 2019

Course fee*: £299.00 (plus VAT at 20%) per delegate

This course focuses on giving a detailed understanding of surface water drainage planning and design to meet current standards and best practice guidance. It takes attendees step by step through the basis and requirements of current criteria and methods for delivering compliant surface water management systems. The course provides an understanding of the inputs, outputs and parameters required in commonly used tools and models (including the uksuds.com tools) – and how to assess whether the right or sufficient information has been presented with drainage submissions.


Coastal processes and management – 12-13 March 2019

Course fee*: £600.00 (plus VAT at 20%) per delegate

An introductory course that looks at the methods used in designing and planning coastal engineering and management schemes. It is designed for those who have just started or are about to start work on coastal management or engineering activities including engineers and managers from local authorities, coastal landowners, regulators and operating authorities. The course combines lecture with hands-on exercises, and explores the history, processes and modelling of changes at the coastline. Topics covered over the two days include: coastal management planning, waves & tides and beach sediment transport/ morphology processes.


Coastal structures – 14 March 2019

Course fee*: £350.00 (plus VAT at 20%) per delegate

This one-day course introduces the key issues of coastal processes and design methods for coastal structures. It’s an ideal course for those who need to know more about the fundamentals of coastal engineering and basic design aspects of structures such as breakwaters, shoreline revetments, seawalls, jetties and elevated decks. This includes coastal engineers, managers and post-graduate researchers. We recommend that the ‘coastal processes and management’ course is completed before taking this course.


River modelling and drainage assessment for flood risk management – 26-27 March 2019

Course fee*: £599.00 (plus VAT at 20%) per delegate

This is an ideal course for those responsible for reviewing river modelling outputs as part of flood risk assessment and surface water conceptual drainage design submissions for planning. A key focus will be on developing an understanding of the necessary review processes and review elements to ensure that the modelling represents the correct hydrological and hydraulic processes; that model inputs are appropriate and sufficiently accurate; that model outputs look sensible and usable; and that the process follows best practice guidance. The course does not provide training in or reference to specific proprietary pieces of modelling software and associated parameters. Instead, the focus is on generic model concepts, objectives and outputs.
