Dredging management course in February

HR Wallingford has launched a new virtual dredging management course, adapted from its popular classroom course.


Delivered in four-hour tranches over four days in February, it will provide an overview of the environmental aspects of dredging, the latest technology and equipment, and the management of dredged material and dredging projects.

The course is aimed at those who are responsible for commissioning and managing dredging contracts and those who regulate dredging.

The three course tutors for this training have excellent technical and practical knowledge, 50 years of combined experience in the dredging market, and have been involved in many commercial and research projects of international significance:

  1. Dr Mark Lee: manager of HR Wallingford’s Dredging group with more than 20 years’ experience of coastal infrastructure projects with a specialism in environmental aspects of dredging and monitoring associated with dredging.
  2. Tom Matthewson: environmental consultant with over 20 years’ experience in the technical direction and management of marine environmental assessment studies at all stages of project development in the aquatic environment.
  3. Giulia Sforzi: Chartered Engineer with over ten years’ experience of working on all phases of a dredging project from concept design to site supervision for major port developments worldwide. 

The course will provide 16 hours of live lectures and exercises over four days (via MS Teams) on 11, 12, 15 and 16 February.
