Geotechnical Engineering: Slope Stability

COURSE NO: G06-001
Geotechnical Engineering: Slope Stability
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course, as a part of Geotechnical Engineering Series, covers basic theories, engineering evaluations, and practical approaches for design and mitigation of earthen slopes.


Fill and cut earthen slopes are indispensable in accommodating elevation changes for ground surface structures. To assure stable grounds for those structures, slopes themselves must be stable enough with required safety margins.


This 6 PDH online course is applicable to geotechnical, civil, mining, structural, and environmental engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with the planning, design, and mitigation of earthern slopes.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understanding the general approach to slope stability analysis
  • Learning about soil stability analytical methods and applications including assessment of computer software
  • Learning about the practical methods for slope stability investigation, assessment, and reinforcement
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 6, Slope Stability of the Federal Highway Administration "Reference Manual Volume I, SOILS {C}AND FOUNDATIONS", Publication No. FHWA NHI-06-088.
