Storm drainage and stormwater management principles
Vision cone problem solving
Elements of stormwater ponds and dams

Exam preparation techniques
Students will complete timed problems covering basic skills required in grading and drainage design. The class takes a programmed approach to Section E, covering necessary skills and developing each subset of this section through the use of a few introductory exercises and building to solving full vignette problems typical of those encountered of the LARE. The instructor will provide tips on how to break problems down and conceptualize a plan of attack for developing solutions. The last two days of the course will be spent on specific task oriented techniques and working and then reviewing timed vignettes typical of those on the exam. A 130 page syllabus and 30 exercises will be provided.

Registration Deadline is April 15.
Class size is limited to 25 students
The only issue with your deadline of 4-15 is that those who recently took Section D won't have notice of pass/fail until the week of the 16th. Which, of course, will determine if they move on to C and E.
I just got off the phone with David Gregory of Colorado ASLA and we discussed this very point. We will be taking registrations for the E class through Wednesday of this week. Please contact David directly regarding late registration.
Just wanted to thank you again Ray.
Every time I take your class I end up passing the test, wish it to be true for Section E as well!
Love your Webinar!
