The guidance Rockfall: Design considerations for Passive Protection Structures has been released by MBIE. It was developed in response to the Canterbury and Kaikoura earthquakes.

This learning resource will help you understand the guidance and how it may be applied in practice. It follows Robin, a geoprofessional as he analyses a potential rockfall situation and what he undertakes to find the best solution.

It would be useful for you to either have a hard copy of the guidance beside you, or have it open on a separate screen/tab.

This course is open to all. However, if you wish to complete the assessment and record your learning, you will need to create an account and login.

  This course is designed for: Geoprofessionals involved in the design of passive rockfall protection structures and regional/territorial authorities involved in consenting

   Duration: 20-30 minutes
