General Information
Event Name: Sampling for Hazardous Materials
Hosted By: Environmental Response Training Program (ERTP)
Event Description:

This 2-day introductory course provides classroom and field instruction for the environmental sampling of soil, groundwater, surface water, sediment and waste. It is intended for individuals with no sampling experience, personnel performing program inspection or oversight, and as a refresher for those returning to field activities.

A variety of methods and types of sampling equipment are presented, demonstrated, and made available for hands-on-experience. New emerging technologies are discussed in classroom modules along with the traditional standards. Air sampling is specifically addressed in "Air Monitoring for Hazardous Materials" and is not discussed in this course.

Sampling basics are presented for waste, groundwater, soils, surface water, and sediments. Concepts of sampling plan development and field screening are summarized to familiarize the student with the Triad approach to sample planning. Fundamentals of documentation and decontamination are conveyed in their primary importance relating to the whole process of collecting a defensible, representative sample. Field exercises reinforce classroom presentation and field demonstrations.

The course is designed to be consistent with the EPA protocol and guidance as presented in EPA Superfund Program Representative Sampling Guidance. New technology guidance is derived from Interstate Technological Research Council (ITRC) and United States Geological Survey (USGS) studies and other publications.

After completing the course, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the Triad sampling strategy and basis for selection of sampling designs
  • Apply protocols for the collection of a representative sample from a variety of environmental media and waste
  • Complete required sample documentation, including labels and chain of custody for delivery of a defensible sample to an analytical laboratory
