Council Officer Training Program


Following the development of geotechnical hazard maps, and a new Development Control Plan [DCP] for the Gosford City Council in the late 1990s, SCE was commissioned to run a series of training programmes for Council’s officers.  These programs were designed to educate Council’s officers with the various geotechnical hazards existent in the area, together with the slope instability mechanisms and the way in which the Australian Geomechanics Society guidelines were to be implemented.

The training programs included a series of one day seminars & workshops sessions, with a follow-up field trip around the Central Coast area to provide 'hands-on' experience of the actual landslide problems.

Subsequent to the initial training programs, bi-annual refresher courses have been implemented.
