 Description:

Too often writing a technical report or documentation can feel like a time-draining burden! However, this is what the client sees and uses to judge the competence of its consultant.

A well-written document conveys competence and accomplishment to the reader and is an essential communication vehicle during a remediation project. Decisions regarding human health and the environment rely heavily on the environmental professional’s ability to provide clear and concise written documentation and reports regarding health risks, as well as technical problems and their potential solutions to clients, regulators, peers, and other stakeholders.

The goal of this course is for attendees to enhance their written communication skills and obtain a framework by which they can craft grammatically correct, coherent, and persuasive documents.

The Course Will Focus On:

  • The mechanics of good technical writing
  • How to structure documents so that the information flows in a comprehensible manner from proposal to Response Action Outcome
  • How to effectively communicate in writing site remediation regulatory and technical requirements, findings, and results

Instructor:

Benjamin Alter, is the author of a leading textbook in the field of environmental consulting, "Environmental Consulting Fundamentals" (2nd edition, 2019). A passionate writer and instructor, he has taught technical writing in house at GZA and at continuing education seminars in New Jersey. He has been an adjunct professor in the public health schools at Hunter College and at the City University of New York Graduate Center and has taught environmental regulations and site remediation at many other universities and at technical conferences.
