This two day seminar provides scientific information on contaminated site assessment and remediation. It focuses on cost effective approaches, methodologies, and technologies.

Course Outline
The environmental condition of property is an important issue in real estate transactions.  Buyers and sellers must be aware of potential environmental liabilities for contaminated soil and groundwater, regulatory non-compliance and buried wastes. Case studies, which are included and distributed as part of this seminar, are based on real projects to reinforce your understanding of the concepts and methodologies. 

To provide participants with in-depth knowledge of site assessment and remediation methodologies.

Program Outline

Faculty: Dr. Nasrat Hijazi, President, TDA Associates & Professor, Department of Physical & Environmental Sciences, University of Toronto Scarborough.

Day I -Phase I and Phase II ESA

Phase I & Phase II ESA Case Studies
• Phase I ESA case studies for industrial, commercial,
  and petroleu sites
• Phase II ESA case studies for industrial, commercial,
  and petroleu sites
Day II- Site Remediation Technologies
Soil Remediation

• Toxic metal sites

There will be a one-hour lunch break each day in addition to a refreshment and networking break during each morning and afternoon session.

After Participating in the Course, You will be Able to:
Evaluate and select appropriate remediation technologies for contaminated soil and groundwater
Define key data requirements and design criteria for remediation technologies
Develop the phased approach to site assessment and remediation with the appropriate analytical data
Enhance project performance by applying  the concepts, methodologies and technologies learnt at the seminar and reinforced by case studies
Achieve greater productivity by using practical and proven remediation technologies most often used at contaminated sites for which you learn
the following attributes at the seminar: physical-chemical principles, unit processes, applicability to waste types, cost, time to complete, advantages/disadvantages, removal/destruction efficiencies.

Here are some reviews of the training vendor.
The course was very well presented and the course instructor was absolutely amazing.
Reviewed by 2013
Our instructor, Stephen Lamming, was outstanding and a true expert in his field. He was able to complement the technical air monitoring information with practical real life examples which was highly beneficial. He is an excellent communicator and was highly interactive with the course attendees. This course was recommended to me because Stephen Lamming does an outstanding job. I was very impressed with this course and have subsequently recommended it to my colleagues.
