Event description

Description

Fundamentals of Environmental Sampling is a Maxxam introductory training course developed for junior to intermediate environmental staff, and anyone interested in a refresher on practices and procedures for representative sample collection.

The program provides theoretical and hands-on training on key stages in the lifecycle of an analytical project from a field perspective. It includes (1) Project Planning, (2) Sample Collection Procedures and (3) Sample Submission. The content is delivered by Maxxam, in a mixed-style combining classroom with outdoor hands-on training, followed by a guided tour of Maxxam’s local environmental testing laboratory.

Participants will receive training on:

  • Regulatory requirements and industry best practices for the development of analytical project plans, as well as sample collection techniques
  • How to collect representative environmental samples
  • Impact of sampling technique to data quality
  • How to properly collect soil and water matrix samples, including F1/BTEX in soils, VOCs in water, metals in water (dissolved phase) and F2-F4 hydrocarbons in soil
  • How to properly fill out a Chain of Custody
  • How to properly pack a cooler and submit samples to the laboratory

Why should you attend this program?

  • To build a strong foundation of skills; the content addresses the “how” but also, very importantly”, the “why”
  • To receive hands-on training; the theory may be easy to follow but the practical portion in an outdoor environment setting is most effective at delivering the take-home messages
  • To absorb condensed material, delivered in a format that makes it easy to remember
  • To learn from qualified and experienced instructors in the field of site assessment and remediation
  • This is one of the only training programs tailored specifically for environmental field staff
