- This is an intensive course for which you will need to do some preparation prior to attending.
- The course is presented at UTS City campus, with simultaneous presentation via Zoom for online participants.
- There will be recommended reading lists and occasional preliminary exercises that you will need to complete before the live lecture sessions - this material will be uploaded on the teaching and learning platform, Canvas, to which you will be given access on registration. The materials on this platform will be available for you two weeks prior to the start of the sessions so that you will have enough time to prepare. All presenters assume that you have completed this preparation.
- You will also gain access to the lecture material (slide packs) shortly before the live lectures start.
- During each day of the 2.5 day lecture course there will normally be four 90-minute presentations, with different experts presenting each session.
- Between the lectures there will be tea and lunch breaks . The course is fully catered.
- The lecture presentations are designed to be interactive. Questions from you are welcomed by the presenters as they provide the opportunity for the group to exchange experiences and discuss related issues.
- All of our presenters use recent case studies to illustrate the concepts they present. Generally, real-life problems are workshopped in small groups so that you can apply the concepts yourself.
- Through the preliminary readings, and lectures, workshops and group discussions you will gain the understanding of the appropriate application of acceptable site assessment methodology.
Specifically, you will learn about:
- The regulatory guidelines as the drivers of effective site assessment
- The elements of Preliminary and Detailed Site Assessment
- The design and implementation of correctly developed CSMs and DQOs
- The principles of field design and sampling
- New developments and current trends in assessment approaches of contaminated sites
- The variety and individual limitations of a range of site assessment approaches
- The effective, defensible and reliable approach to the presentation of results of an investigation.
On completion of the module, you will receive a Certificate of Attendance.
Should you decide to complete to a satisfactory level the optional post-module assignment (no additional fee) based on the topics covered in the module you will be awarded a Certificate of Completion.
The course is delivered via lectures, workshops and panel discussions, giving you the opportunity to share your experiences with presenters and other participants.
