Keynetix to Support the Geotechnical Academy

Please note that the following news item is an archived article. Therefore any links and information may now be out of date.

Geotechnical Academy & EquipeKeynetix are delighted to have been offered the opportunity to be a regular contributor to the Geotechnical Academy starting in June 2014.

The Geotechnical Academy is a collaboration between Equipe Group and Geotechnical Engineering Ltd, providing fundamental technical and commercial training to aspiring geo-professionals, helping them to apply their theoretical and technical understanding in the practical and commercial world.

The training experience is different from other more traditional offerings, in that it will take a group of delegates and their sponsors on a journey over a whole year, to greater knowledge and appreciation of their subject.

Roger Chandler of Keynetix will be taking part in the training sessions that will form part of this fantastic academy.  Here he will be raising awareness in the industry of the importance of Geotechnical Data Management, AGS, BIM and the new BS 8574.

“The Geotechnical Academy is a great opportunity for both new and experienced engineers and it is great to be able to contribute to one of the modules.” says Roger “Good geotechnical data management is vital in today’s workplace and I find teaching this to engineers very enjoyable and rewarding.  I’m looking forward to helping engineers experience some exciting light bulb moments over the coming months and then giving them practical advice on how to make better use of their time and geotechnical data.”

Roger comes from a Geotechnical background and has been an active member of the AGS Data Management Committee since 1997, a member of DIGGS Cone SIG since 2005 and was the co-author of AGSM.

Liz Withington of The Geotechnical Academy says “This is on-the-ground practical development for early stage career geo-professionals.  The Geotechnical Academy is a partnership between Geotechnical Engineering Ltd & Equipe Training, providing unique, high quality vocational geotechnical CPD development for early career engineering professionals.  We are delighted to have Roger Chandler from Keynetix as a regular contributor.  Rogers’s innovative approach to geotechnical data management demonstrates The Geotechnical Academy’s commitment to challenging young geo-professionals in to stimulating change within the industry“

Attendees of the academy will gain knowledge, join in practical demonstrations of equipment and techniques, take part in discussions about a wide variety of technical and commercial topics relevant to their work and hopefully have a thoroughly enjoyable experience to inspire them into the future!  All training days will be eligible for CPD certification.
