Course Faculty

Speaking "Environmental"

We will demystify EPA lingo and acronyms. You will know an RMP from a GMP, and be able to discuss SPCCs with other PRPs. Everyone will understand DMRs and find what you need in the CFRs. No more worries over Tier 2 or Form R, and which one is a 312 or 313 report. Was that a TRI report, or was it TSCA or CAA? And by the way, did I "spill" or "release" that? Does it even matter? What is the difference between a "hazardous substance" and a "hazardous material?" Aren't they all just chemicals? Where do we fit in "pollutants or contaminants?" Is this stuff a "sinker" or a "floater?" And what in the world is a "Stack Test?" OCAs, NRCs, OSCs, RQs, TPQs, ARARs and EHSs -- all will be made clear.

Laptops are encouraged in class, if wireless access is available, to visit relevant websites and show you how to find, research and navigate topics and pages. We will download useful tools and demonstrate their use, such as air release modeling, search for environmental sites in your zip code, access filed reports and contact program hotlines to ask questions.

Attendees are encouraged to contact us with any issues or questions ahead of class, and we will address them as time and topics permit.
