CDA launches portal for on-line learning

CDA recognizes that dam industry professionals want to be continuously upgrading their knowledge, but the cost and time to travel to conferences and workshops can be a barrier.

Now, there’s a solution. The CDA Live Learning Centre brings training to your computer, tablet or smartphone.

From the comfort of your office or home, you can view recorded sessions on topics of interest and importance to you. Free previews allow you to assure yourself that the content will be relevant to your needs before you buy.

Weren’t able to attend recent CDA annual conferences? Selected content has been recorded and will be rolled out in coming weeks.

Already available on the CDA LLC is the webcast of the Tailings Dam Breach Analysis (Part 1), a webcast of the workshop held in Banff in October 2014. The webcast comes complete with a set of handouts, and is broken out into nine sessions. Free previews of each of the webcast sessions are offered.

Members-only pricing

CDA has created accounts on the CDA LLC portal for members so that we can offer special members-only pricing. Members should have received an e-mail with their log-in information; if you have difficulty in accessing members-only pricing, let us know and we’ll work with you to get you the membership benefit that you deserve.

More webcasts, conference presentations and webinars will be added to the CDA LLC regularly, so watch this space for announcements.
