the last 35 years, countries around the world have developed and implemented guidelines
and standards for the investigation, mitigation, and remediation of contaminated
properties. In all sectors of the economy, high profile contaminated sites,
human health issues, litigation, and enormous cleanup costs have heightened the
awareness of environmental issues relating to contaminated properties. Contaminated
soil, sediment or groundwater in prime real estate and sensitive ecological locations
has resulted in the loss of millions of dollars due to lack of development or
ineffective management of these properties.
ENVIRONMENTAL was founded to provide specialized and leading-edge
environmental training and networking through courses, conferences,
and workshops. This Course was developed to provide a medium for
the transfer of unbiased information and technology to clean
up contaminated properties. The Course has evolved over the last
twenty-four years into an internationally recognized solution-based
training program that brings together participants, regulators,
consultants, and academics from across the globe.
Course is firmly established as far as content and instruction.
The Course is sponsored by one of the largest environmental associations
in North America and largest groundwater resource protection associations
in the world. Over the last twenty-four years, the Course has
received support and sponsorship from major environmental associations
world-wide. The instructors represent academia, government, and
the private sector; all are leaders in their respective fields.
This framework provides for an unbiased transfer of information
that provides individuals who own, regulate, investigate, remediate
or are impacted by contaminated properties with a solid theoretical
and practical foundation in contaminated site management. The
management of these sites is a multi-disciplinary task. This course
integrates all the disciplines necessary to successfully, efficiently
and economically manage or make decisions regarding these sites.
participants will receive theoretical and practical foundations, as well as
important information regarding regulatory compliance aspects of contaminated
site management. This knowledge will be coupled with a hands-on approach to understanding
the tools and techniques for managing contaminated sites. Some experience is helpful,
but not necessary, as the Course teaches basic principles before addressing more
is the only indoor-outdoor and online course being offered globally
that covers all issues related to managing subsurface contamination,
from theory to practice. The Course's 10+ instructors are
from academia, private industry, and government in North America
and are recognized as leading experts and teachers in their respective
fields. These instructors will provide students with access
to a broad base of practical experience and an excellent opportunity
to network with leading professionals.
of your level of expertise, the combination of information presented during this
Course will not be found elsewhere and will provide you with the knowledge and
confidence to effectively manage contaminated sites. This Course will provide
participants with the competitive edge required in this rapidly evolving field.
part of the education process, selected case histories of soil,
sediment and groundwater investigations, remediations and risk assessments
will be studied to further emphasize the practical aspects of each
lecture topic. While a good number of 2-3 day short courses are
offered on some aspects of contaminated site management, there are
few one-week courses offering the opportunity for in-depth learning
of a more complete range of issues. The extent of recent developments
in the science and technology of contaminated and hazardous waste
site management is such that one would be required to attend many
short courses in order to be brought up to speed. Our intensive
online-in person course, with additional outdoor demonstrations,
is an attractive alternative for busy professionals.
course allows for outdoor seminars to demonstrate the various site
characterization and remediation technologies currently being used
on sites across North America today.
majority of courses provide two or three instructors to cover an
extensive array of topics in two days and charge the same amount
for registration for two days as this course charges for a collective
five days. The 10+ instructors in this course, along with the many
technology demonstrators, will provide students with a unique access
to a very broad base of practical experience and an excellent opportunity
to network with leading professionals.
Course provides an unparalleled synthesis of technical information and applied
knowledge in contaminated and hazardous waste site management.
