Learning Outcomes
Learners will be able to detail the project planning phase of site development, including a feasibility study, surveys, geotechnical investigation, costs, regulatory requirements, and analyzing potential project blockages.

Learners will be able to explain the importance of understanding the role of soils in site development and for investigating soil characteristics, classification engineering properties, and slope stabilization on particular sites.

Learners will be able to reference stormwater pollution prevention regulations and apply acquired best stormwater management practices to prevent and control erosion and sediment.

Learners will be able to explain the skills needed and duties of the site and project management team (initiation, planning, execution, closure, quality control, budgeting, cost control, cash flow, setting goals, surface and groundwater and earthwork safety), and they will be able to assist in site layout planning (setting goals, surface and groundwater protection, selecting proper building materials and equipment).
