Course Description

This ISEERB approved course is designed to satisfy the training requirements for DoD and Navy environmental samplers specified in Chapter 7 (paragraph 3.7.b) of OPNAVINST 5090.1(series) by providing training in basic sampling techniques (grab/composite/multi-increment sampling, avoidance of cross contamination, use of preservatives, etc.) specific sampling techniques for the following media: soil, potable water, waste water (including storm water), groundwater and hazardous waste, completion of environmental sampling paperwork (e.g. sample container labeling, field log books, chain of custody documentation) health and safety considerations, field testing techniques (i.e. use of pH meter, conductivity / total dissolved solids meter, temperature indicator and dissolved oxygen meter), and use of a flow-through cell for micro purging of monitoring wells.

Much of the course time is devoted to hands-on laboratory and field exercises. The proper use of various types of sampling equipment is demonstrated in the classroom. Students are given the opportunity to practice using equipment in the laboratory and simulate on-the-job conditions.
