Webinar: Designing with Grades (1.5 CEUs)
Wednesday, June 10th, 2020 11am – 1pm PDT (that is 2pm – 4pm EDT)

Join our first-ever webinar! This 2-hour virtual lecture will teach you about understanding topography and how to calculate and design with grades. Accurately designing for topography changes will make bids on your projects more accurate and installation of your designs go smoother.

She will provide multiple examples for exploring tricky calculations and problem solving with grades, ranging in difficulty.

Live webinar participants will have the opportunity to ask questions during the Q&A session of the webinar.

Members of all APLD chapters are welcome to register!
