This course presents the requirements in the National Standard, CAN/CSAS501 and is designed to help learners develop a thorough understanding of the main causes/mechanisms of permafrost degradation and thaw in northern communities and, importantly, near or beneath existing structures. The course will also address the main management options used to reduce, stop or reverse permafrost degradation near or beneath existing structures.
Upon completion of the course, participants will understand the importance of planning construction/installation for seasonal considerations in Northern climates and incorporate that knowledge into their project management and planning activities.
In 2012, CSA Group was selected by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) to develop standards to help address the impact of climate change in Northern Canada as part of the Northern Infrastructure Standardization Initiative (NISI). CSA Group has actively been researching the role standards and codes play in helping to mitigate the risk associated with changing climate and its impact on infrastructure in various regions of Canada since 2005. Our training reflects the latest industry research and the experts of technical experts to help participants apply these standards.
