Webinars are conducted on a platform called Go-to-Webinar. Instructions and 
login information will be provided in an access email sent closer to the date of the webinar.
View system requirements here. 

All attendees must log-on through their own email – attendees may not watch 
together if they wish to obtain CE credit. HalfMoon Education Inc. must be able to prove 
attendance if either the attendee or HalfMoon Education Inc. is audited.

Foundation Engineering Consultants

Foundation Engineering Consultants, Inc
Mr. Affi is the founder of Foundation Engineering Consultants, Inc., in the state of California. He specializes in excavation support analysis, drilled pier foundations and sub-structural engineering software. Mr. Affi is a licensed civil engineer in California and has authored three books. He was recently awarded a U.S. patent in a new method of supporting lightly-loaded foundations and pavements on highly-expansive soils. Mr. Affi is very interested in filling the practice gap between geotechnical and structural engineers when it comes to foundations and earth retaining structures.
