Chemistry for Environmental Professionals - Applied
Hosted by Environmental Response Training Program (ERTP)
ERT - OSRTI

This 1.5 day course provides participants with an introduction to applied environmental chemistry principles and practices which underlie the release, fate and transport, sampling, analysis, and cleanup of chemicals contaminating environmental media, with particular emphasis on soil and groundwater. This course is designed for environmental professionals who are not chemists, but who require a basic knowledge of chemistry and environmental chemistry in their work.  Some prior education in chemistry, to the high school level or above, is recommended but not required.

Specific topics include a survey of  selected chemical industries or processes that release hazardous chemicals into the environment; fate and transport of chemicals in environmental media; data quality objectives, including the control of false positive and false negative decision errors; and data usability, including defining detection limits and data qualifiers.

This course is preceded by the “Chemistry for Environmental Professionals - Fundamentals” training course. Students are encouraged to request both courses when registering.

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the chemical, soil, water, and geological properties which govern the fate and transport of chemicals in environmental media
  • List key chemicals and modes of release associated with selected chemical industries or processes
  • List chemical parameter changes associated with aerobic and anaerobic degradation of hydrocarbons in subsurface media
  • Identify the elements of the data quality objective (DQO) process
  • Evaluate the consequences of false positive and false negative decision errors
  • Describe procedures and practices commonly employed to ensure the quality and usability of analytical chemical data
  • Define common terms and parameters used to evaluate and communicate the quality and usability of analytical chemical data
