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.
The course will teach delegates:
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.
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
This is an introductory course suitable for new starters, those needing a refresher or for those managing contaminated land staff.
