Detailed site characterisation is often an essential step in the assessment of potential contamination issues at a site. Therefore, the ability to plan and carry out effective intrusive site investigations in order to characterise a site is an important skill for anyone working in the field of contaminated land management 

This is one of a series of 5 one-day courses covering the fundamental subject matter relevant to the investigation, assessment and management of land contamination. The courses aim to improve knowledge of the subject matter and the application of this knowledge in the risk-based approach for the assessment and management of land contamination.  The courses in this series cover legislation and conceptual models, site characterisation, human-health risk assessment, remediation and risk management and reviewing 3rd Party reports.  These courses can be taken individually or in combination.

Purchase of the course provides one person access to the course materials over a 2 week period.  The course pace is aimed at completing the course 1-2 hours a day over 5 days, with a further week for those who need a little longer.  If done continuously, the course should be able to be completed in one day.

Public sector rates only apply to qualifying organisations (i.e. Local Authorities, Health Authorities, the Environment Agency, SEPA, etc.).

Your course will start the Monday after you have ordered it - if you require a different start date please email judith@lqm.co.uk

The course will teach delegates:

  • how to develop risk-driven conceptual site models;
  • how to set site investigation objectives;
  • the different sampling techniques available;
  • the different sampling strategies available;
  • analytical strategies and associated issues;
  • quality assurance and quality control issues; and
  • what should be expected in a good site investigation report.

There will be several practical sessions throughout the day to practice the skills learned. Practical sessions involve the use of data for a contaminated site to identify objectives for a site investigation, plan a sampling strategy, and plan an analytical strategy.

Land Quality Management courses are renowned for their relevance and quality.  This comes from our belief that training should be interesting, relevant and make a difference to the way our delegates go about their normal contaminated land related business.  We always select top quality tutors with both the experience to communicate and the knowledge to share – as well as the enthusiasm to improve the way land contamination issues are tackled.
