Course Highlights

This engineering online PDH covers the basic guidelines and principles of dam risk management.


Risk management is the overarching activity when risk is used to inform dam safety decision making and builds on risk analysis and risk assessment phases. It encompasses activities related to making risk-informed decisions, prioritizing evaluations of risk, prioritizing risk reduction activities, and making program decisions associated with managing a portfolio of facilities. Risk management includes evaluating the environmental, social, cultural, ethical, political, and legal considerations during all parts of the process.


This 3 PDH online course is applicable to geotechnical and civil engineers, as well as other technical personnel who are interested in gaining a better understanding of dam risk management in order to make risk-informed decisions.
