The Basic WASCOB training series is a four-part video based on the original Basic WASCOB webinar presented in April from the Technical Training and Certification Program. The format is mostly a recorded PowerPoint. This course is intended for staff that are very new to the WASCOB practice and need to learn terminology, design concepts, and start to visualize how WASCOBs are laid out in the field. The goal is to build a base-level of knowledge to prepare staff for further classroom and field training opportunities.
(Time: 5:27) Introduces the practice explaining the purpose of WASCOBs and common terms associated with a typical embankment.
