Education & Training

TRAINING

Since 2010, the ALIDP has partnered with The City of Calgary Water Resources to deliver its annual erosion and sediment control training, and to develop a second track in stormwater management. In 2013, we assisted the City of Edmonton with a rollout event for its LID Design Guide. We have provided live, in-person training as far away as Grande Prairie. There is no training planned for March of 2017, however, some ESC training may be offered in April 2017. Stay tuned.

EVENT COLLABORATIONS

The ALIDP is privileged to count amoung its event partners Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), the Canadian Water Resources Association Alberta Branch, and the Cities of Edmonton and Calgary. 

VIDEO WEB-BASED OFFERINGS

Beginning in 2012, the ALIDP began video recording of some presentations. A future project is to develop, at least, the introductory LID material into on-demand web-based training. With the new website taking fledgeling steps, we hope to move into more web-based content-delivery soon.

TRAINING FOR YOUR GROUP

The ALIDP has two days of modularized training that can be presented 'live' to your municipality or group. This has proven to be a good option for distant communities such as Grande Prairie, where it is more practical to bring the trainer in rather than have a few participants to go out.

AVAILABLE TRAINING CONTENT

  • The ABCs of LID (1 to 7 hours - overview)
  • Stormwater Modelling for non-modellers (1 to 3 hours - overview)
  • ESC for LID (1 to 3 hours - construction-oriented)
  • The Role of Planning, Analysis & Design in Urban Drainage Practice (3 hours - intermediate)

Let us customize a training program to meet your needs.
