knowledge of the Eurocodes is necessary.

Eurocode 7 Part 2 is the current European and British standard for ground investigation and
testing. This course explains how the code differs from traditional practice particularly with
regards to planning investigations, reporting, and deriving characteristic values for design.
Practical tutorials show delegates how to scope an investigation and obtain parameters
from it to Eurocode 7.

Part 2 and be able to apply them when planning ground investigation and deriving
characteristic values for design.
