The price for the 2-day course is just $800. Engineers Australia members can receive a 25% registration discount, for a total price of just $600. Academic pricing is just $250 per day. Please enquire for a coupon code to apply the discounts at checkout.


Register for the 21-22 March RORB Design Flood Estimation course being held at Engineers Australia
and attend the 2-day HEC-RAS course absolutely free!
(Offer limited to the first five new attendees registering between 7 and 17 March 2017.)

We have added all new WA-based case studies for the HEC-RAS 2D modelling course, including diversion drains, pit inflow, tailings dam break, direct rainfall/rain on grid, and urban and coastal flooding. In response to feedback from our previous courses, we are also incorporating workshops with hydraulic structures, GIS interfacing, and terrain manipulation within HEC-RAS. Each day’s course runs from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Following is an outline of the proceedings:
