Description

    

Course Description:
This course provides an overview of DEP Standard Operating Procedures for the collection of surface water, wastewater, drinking water and groundwater samples, with “hands-on” activities designed to illustrate SOP requirements. The class will also provide instruction in the proper calibration of field instruments used to measure common field-testing parameters in water samples, including those used to monitor groundwater purging stabilization criteria.  Instructors are DEP staff experienced with sampling and quality assurance topics. The course consists of a morning classroom session, followed by instructor-guided hands-on segments starting in the morning and after lunch, with time allowed for questions and discussion about “real-world” scenarios encountered in the field. Students will be divided into smaller groups for the hands-on portions of the course. Class size is limited.
