Collecting accurate data is essential to the success of environmental projects. Without a strong understanding of quality assurance and control procedures, sample collection techniques, field notes in log books, completion of standard data sheets, and laboratory chains of custodies, field technicians may generate unsuitable data that is not representative of actual site conditions. This in turn can lead to data gaps and serious flaws in the environmental planning process to remediate contaminated soil, ground water, and surface waters for environmental compliance.

This class will give you the tools and knowledge you need to provide the project managers, supervisors, and senior level consultants in your organization with data they can rely on. This course will be particularly helpful for you if your job responsibilities include soil, ground water, and surface water sampling. Situations that can pose a challenge to collecting data and how to effectively address those challenges will also be discussed.
