Soils Level I
The WACEL Soil Level I Training Program examines Measurements Systems--Physical Constants, Sampling and Proportioning, Test Method Review, Classification, Field Operations and Reports.
Technicians will receive guidance to understand the requirements of each section and obtain the knowledge they need by working through specific examples, performing the necessary calculations and responding to sample questions and typical field scenarios. This outstanding program not only shows how to perform specific tests and procedures but explains the reasons why they are performed and their importance to the success of a project.
Each technician will receive a comprehensive workbook that can be used in the field and in the lab as a constant reference source to help improve daily operations and expand the technicians understanding of the technical requirements associated with soil sampling and testing.
