LQM is a specialist environmental consultancy based in Nottingham (UK) with an international reputation for assessing and managing the risks posed to human health and the environment by contaminants in soil. Increasingly this is being done within a context of sustainable development and specifically sustainable brownfield regeneration.
We provide consultancy, peer review and expert witness services, contract research and training courses on all aspects of the management of land contamination to problem holders, developers and local government.

Contaminant chemistry is vital to understanding the potential health impacts of contaminants, the likely exposure routes and the fate and transport processes that will drive (or limit) their migration through soil, air and water. Such information is an absolute requirement for ensuring that all potentially significant contaminant linkages are included in the site conceptual model.
The course will teach delegates:

NEED MORE FLEXIBILITY?
"Hands on maked it make more sense"
"Good overview of various aspects of chemistry"
"All of it was good and helpful. Introduction to chemistry was a great refresher. All things hydrocarbon will be very useful"
"We try and send [all our new engineers] on at some point as I think this course is excellent" (Consultant)
"Helped to explain concepts heard at work" (Consultant)
"Good coverage of basics as a refresher" (Consultant)
"Very good notes package" (Consultant)
"Organic chemistry was really helpful in my understanding" (Consultant)
“I feel like I got a lot out of today and will definitely help understanding lab certificates! The run-through the common chemical contaminants and lab analytical techniques were perhaps the most useful. The handouts will no doubt be used as a reference resource when back at the office. The introduction module served as a timely reminder / refresh of the basics.” (Consultant)
“Practical’s & handouts comprehensive” (Consultant)
“Very wide ranging in both organic & inorganic chemistry & how they relate to contaminated land” (Consultant)
“Good course – helped me process the basics whilst keeping it related to contaminated land aspects” (Consultant)
“Good recap of theoretical chemistry” (Consultant)
“I thoroughly enjoyed the partitioning example using the food dye and tumeric.” (Consultant)
“Linking knowledge to contaminated land.” (Consultant)
May & June 2013
"Practical molecule exercise, detailing use of chemicals in industry & how they degrade"
"Playing with Balls!"
"Explanation of an unfamiliar subject"
"Molecular models really helped to understand the molecules"
"Practicals were good fun and very informative a helpful."
"Refreshing knowledge on the basics + from understanding that increasing my knowledge of new information"
"excellent teaching style"
"Models hands on meant I grasped the compounds more quickly than just viewing slides. was a good after lunch activity - the 'graveyard' shift can be tough to keep people engaged"
"Richard made what can be a fairly dry subject interesting + kept my attention until the end."
"Easy to ask questions"
"good presenter, relevant material, useful handouts"
"good base knowledge"
"enjoyed the practical element, definitely made me understand better than just looking at diagrams"
"A lot to digest! But it was very well simplified... Very useful, thanks!"
