Principles of Quality Assurance and Quality Control in Environmental Field Programs
Hosted by Northwest Environmental Training Center

In this course, attendees will learn the role of quality assurance and quality control in developing environmental programs for site investigations, remediation, and monitoring at contaminated sites. Participants will become comfortable with concepts, tools, and the basic statistical methods needed for designing and implementing a field program, and will gain knowledge regarding how to work with a laboratory to ensure the right chemical analyses are performed on the right samples.  Emphasis will be put on how to plan for and then evaluate data produced to achieve the greatest usability.

Upon completion of the course, attendees will come away with tools for deciding how to assess enviornmental laboratory data, how to maximize data defensibility, and when an independent data validator is needed. Extensive hands-on exercises include working through a Quality Assurance Project Plan and setting up Excel worksheets to perform efficient assessments for standard analytical data.
