The DFDTA conference will present a one-day seminar titled Deep Foundation Integrity Testing and Wave Equation Analysis on March 11, 2020. A two-day workshop titled High Strain Dynamic Foundation Testing will also be presented March 12-13, 2020. On the third-day, PDCA will also offer the Dynamic Measurement and Analysis Proficiency Test, a 90-minute, multiple-choice exam that will cover the theory of Wave Mechanics, Case Method (PDA) equations, data quality assessment, data interpretation and basic CAPWAP analysis.
Early Bird Registration: $50 discount on each Seminar and Workshop prior to February 15, 2019.
Who should attend: Geotechnical, structural and construction engineers; owners, contractors and other professionals involved in the design, construction and specification of deep foundations.
Learning objectives: At the end of the seminar, attendees will be able to:

Learning objectives: At the end of this two-day workshop attendees will be able to:
A Certificate of Completion, documenting the number of hours of instruction - Professional Development Hours (PDH’s) will be provided. Check with your engineering board of registration for their continuing education requirements.
At the end of the High Strain Dynamic Testing Workshop participants may take a multiple-choice Dynamic Measurement and Analysis Proficiency Test which will take less than 1-½ hours to complete. The test will cover the theory of Wave Mechanics, Case Method (PDA) equations, data quality assessment, data interpretation and basic CAPWAP analysis. The test is designed for those with experience in using the Pile Driving Analyzer® system and CAPWAP to perform High Strain Dynamic Foundation Tests.
A Certificate of Proficiency in High Strain Dynamic Pile Testing will be awarded to those who pass the test. The Level indicated on the Certificate is dependent on the score achieved on the test. Those who do not pass the test will receive full credit of test only registration fee to be applied towards retaking the test at the next course.
