Stormwater Fundamentals Series in 2024

In collaboration with Quilty Engineering Hub, Ocean Protect are excited to launch the first ‘Stormwater Fundamentals’ series in 2024 – free, ‘on-line’ sessions, focussing on the fundamentals of urban stormwater design.

What is it ?

  • Twelve (12) separate knowledge sharing sessions (at zero cost)
  • Each of the sessions focusses on a fundamental part of urban stormwater design, with presentations, and interactive Q&A and discussions with attendees
  • All sessions will be provided ‘on-line’ (via Zoom) ‘live’ (with recordings and training material also made available to registrants)
  • Each session will be led by Sean Quilty or Brad Dalrymple, with guest co-presenters also joining for most sessions.
  • Registrants can attend any (or all) of the separate sessions, with CPD certificates provided upon request.

Who should attend:

  • Students – AQF 6+ (currently studying an Associates Degree or Bachelor Degree)
  • Early career stormwater professionals
  • Seasoned stormwater professionals yet to learn about key areas.

When is it, what are the sessions, and how do I register ?
