Groundmodel E-Learning

The Groundmodels E-Learning is for those who need to train themselves in the logic required to develop and justify a 3D depiction of the ground, and are seeking a supportive system of tuition in ground modelling.

The courses include include a suite of ground modelling exercises of increasing complexity which are suitable for satisfying the criteria of Continuing Professional Development. The exercises have been approved by The Geological Society of London as suitable preparation in part for CGeol and are currently available from the Institution of Civil Engineers.

There are three levels of training:

Introduction to Ground Modelling

Suitable for Civil Engineers (including geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineers and hydrogeologists) with a first degree who need to understand how such models are made and thus the sensible limits to their use.

Geoscientists and geologists with a first degree who need to be able to justify and verify for the purposes of design, construction and risk, the model they have proposed and to present their model in terms that are useable for geotechnical, geoenvironmental and hydrogeological practice.

Ground Modelling for Professionals

Suitable for Civil Engineers (including geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineers and hydrogeologists) with Postgraduate Training who need to understand how such models are made, thus the sensible limits to their use and the data required to justify numerical models.

Geoscientists and geologists with a Postgraduate Degree who need to be able to justify and verify for the purposes of design, construction and risk, the model they have proposed and to present their model in terms that are useable for geotechnical, geoenvironmental and hydrogeological practice including the development of numerical models.

Ground Modelling for Developed Professionals

Suitable for Civil Engineers (including geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineers and hydrogeologists) with Postgraduate Training and Professional Experience who need to demonstrate how such models are made, thus the sensible limits to their use and the data required to justify the design of ground investigations and numerical models.

Geoscientists and geologists with a Postgraduate Degree who need to be able to justify and verify for the purposes of design, construction and risk, the model they have proposed, to demonstrate the investigation required and to present their model in terms that are usable for geotechnical, geoenvironmental and hydrogeological practice including the design and commissioning of ground investigation and development of numerical models.
