COURSE NO: H03-009
PDH CREDIT: 3
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Building Field Capabilities to Respond to Drinking Water Contamination
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance on building field capabilities in order to respond to the contamination of drinking water. The course also provides planning and implementation guidance, templates, customizable report forms, and other documentation for Sampling and Analysis (S&A) activities.

 

When performed in response to possible or credible drinking water contamination, the goal of Sampling and Analysis (S&A) is to confirm or rule out contamination through field and laboratory testing. It is one of the earliest utility-led activities initiated when the utility has activated its drinking water contamination response plan and continues throughout remediation and recovery if contamination is confirmed.

 

This 3 PDH online course is intended for chemical and environmental engineers as well as others who are interested in learning more about building field capabilities in order to respond to the contamination of drinking water.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Familiarizing with planning and documentation for visual site hazard assessment, sample collection, and sample packaging and shipping
  • Familiarizing with planning and documentation for site safety screening, rapid field testing, and hazardous materials packaging and shipping
  • Understanding the staffing requirements to perform basic and advanced field activities
  • Taking into consideration field response health and safety
  • Familiarizing with quality assurance and quality control
  • Understanding emergency response procedures
  • Familiarizing with the considerations for preparation, placement, and contents of emergency response sampling and analysis kits
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the document, "Building Field Capabilities to Respond to Drinking Water Contamination" which is based on the U.S. EPA document "Guidance for Building Field Capabilities to Respond to Drinking Water Contamination", publication number EPA 817-R-16-001, dated January 2017.
