DFDTA November 2024 Cleveland


Pile Dynamics, Inc. (PDI), in cooperation with the Pile Driving Contractors Association (PDCA), has developed a "Dynamic Measurement and Analysis Proficiency Test" for engineers providing high strain dynamic foundation testing services. The test was designed to reflect their level of knowledge and ability, which is then indicated in a "Certificate of Proficiency". To assure a high standard of testing, many organizations or agencies seeking testing services now require a certificate demonstrating some specified level of ability in dynamic testing.

Please visit http://www.pdaproficiencytest.com/ for information regarding experience levels requirements, testing dates and locations, as well as full information about the information covered by the test.


PDCA, in collaboration with Pile Dynamics, Inc., will present this three-day program over the dates of November 6-8, 2024, at the Pile Dynamics Headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio.

The DFDTA conference will present a one-day seminar titled Deep Foundation Integrity Testing and Wave Equation Analysis on November 6, 2024.  A two-day workshop titled High Strain Dynamic Foundation Testing will also be presented November 7-8, 2023. On the third day, PDCA will also offer the Dynamic Measurement and Analysis Proficiency Test, a 90-minute, multiple-choice exam that will cover the theory of Wave Mechanics, Case Method (PDA) equations, data quality assessment, data interpretation and basic CAPWAP analysis.

A total of 20 Professional Development Hours earned for all 3 days: 
  • 7 PDHs for the Day 1 Seminar
  • 13 PDHs for Day 2 and 3 Workshop
Full program details and registration information for the seminar / workshop, will be coming soon. Please mark your calendars for this event.
