The ability to conduct thorough desk studies and to produce and understand initial conceptual site models is fundamental to the effective identification of potential contamination issues at a site.
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.

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.
By the end of the course delegates should be better able to:
All delegates will be issued with a Certificate of Attendance which should be retained and used to provide evidence of CPD activity when required by employers or professional bodies.
