By: HazMat Staff


This is the most comprehensive one week indoor-outdoor course being offered globally that covers all issues related to managing subsurface contamination, from theory to practice.

The 15 instructors in this course, along with the many technology demonstrators, will provide participants with unique access to a very broad base of practical experience and an excellent opportunity to network with leading professionals. This knowledge will be coupled with a hands-on approach to understanding the tools and techniques for managing contaminated sites. Some experience is helpful, but not necessary, as the course teaches basic principles before addressing more advanced topics.
