NISI S503 Online Training
This course covers CAN/CSA-S503's design requirements, including operational and maintenance/monitoring needs and discusses the proper function of Canada's northern community drainage infrastructure.
Course participants will understand the main components of a community drainage plan and system; how northern conditions can affect design, construction and management choices; and adjustments that can be made to technical methods (such as "time of concentration" calculations) when operating in permafrost environments in the North.
- Define the challenges of designing drainage systems for northern communities based on unique environmental and climate conditions
- Describe how climate change affects community drainage design and maintenance
- Understand how changing rain and snow intensity, duration and change affect community drainage design and maintenance
- Gain insight on how to design community drainage based on future climate projections
- Define impact of climate change models showing increase in storms to design/construction of infrastructure in the north
- Explain the importance of planning construction/ installation for seasonal considerations to incorporate into the project management/ planning phase
- Determine when to use other standards that are referenced in CAN/CSA S503
- Explain the limitations of community drainage (culverts, drains, bridges, run off) based on site conditions and level of risk to design to
- Identify challenges/barriers and how to address them
- Gain an understanding of the required materials, spare parts, and seasonal access/labor for required for installing community drainage systems
Why get Your Training From CSA?
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.
