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 eighteen years into an internationally recognized solution-based training
program that brings together participants, regulators, consultants, and academics
from across the globe.
Association of Hydrogeologist (IAH) (www.iah.org)
is an international organisation for scientists, engineers and other professionals
working in the fields of groundwater resource planning, management and protection.
It was founded in 1956 and has grown, with the increasing social and environmental
importance of groundwater, to a membership of more than 3500 members in more than
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 one week indoor-outdoor course being offered globally that covers
all issues related to managing subsurface contamination, from theory to practice.
The Course's 15 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
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 one-week course, with additional workshops and outdoor demonstrations,
is an attractive alternative for busy professionals.
week-long course allows for a half-day of outdoor seminars to demonstrate the
various site characterization and remediation technologies currently being used
on sites across North America today. Three optional nightly seminars will provide
the attendee with hands-on computer workshops to demonstrate the applicsation
of environmental decision support software, groundwater modeling and risk assessment
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 five. The 15 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.
