Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation
Remedial Process is a beginner-level training course that provides a comprehensive examination of the technical and regulatory issues that Remedial Project Managers (RPM) must address as they oversee remedial response efforts at Superfund sites.
By taking the course, participants will achieve the following objectives:
Learn the process to implement remedial response activities at Superfund sites and methods to conduct such activities effectively. The course discusses strategies for site characterization, oversight and enforcement, applicable or relevant and appropriate requirements (ARAR), contracts and resources, Superfund decision documents, remedial design and remedial action (RD/RA) and community involvement.
Understand and identify the various regulatory and administrative aspects of the Superfund program. The course examines a number of contracting issues, identifies resources that support contracting efforts, and reviews requirements for operation and maintenance activities, site close-out, five-year reviews and remedy optimization.
Develop an awareness of the role of community involvement in the remedial process. The course discusses the principles of community involvement, the role of community involvement plans and various methods of dealing with problems related to community involvement, including conflict management and effective negotiation.
Apply the knowledge RPMs gain during the course. Participants take part in several activities that give them the opportunity to apply their newly acquired skills and knowledge to realistic situations that reflect the real-life experiences of RPMs working in the Superfund program.
The Remedial Process course is a 4 ½-day course and is designed for RPMs and other environmental professionals who have one to three years of experience in the Superfund program and who are responsible for or need to know about remedial response activities under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA). THIS COURSE IS NOT OPEN TO ACADEMIA, CONSULTANTS, CONTRACTORS OR ANY PRIVATE ENTITIES. The Fundamentals of Superfund course is a prerequisite for EPA employees who would like to attend the Remedial Process course. Please note, non-EPA registrants may be asked to cancel their registration if the course reaches capacity, as priority to attend this course is given to EPA RPMs.
*This course is offered free of charge to all registrants who are confirmed to attend.*
