The course instructors are Dr. Henry Nowicki and Bill Purves. They have provided the 4-day course "Quality Assurance of Environmental Measurements" for many years to well over a thousand participants. Many of those participants requested additional courses on the subject. This course provides more detail and specific information on the subject of environmental data validation. The U.S. EPA CERCLA/SARA data package will be used as a model in this course. You'll gain a realistic appreciation for state-of-the-art validation. A broad range of environmental specialists will benefit from this course: managers, engineers, chemists, quality assurance specialists, regulators, and legal specialists. Dr. Nowicki provides the general principles and information on organic data validation. Bill Purves provides information on the data validation of environmental metal measurements. Both instructors have performed in and directed laboratories providing these environmental measurements. They can provide this course at your site as well as is on the public session schedule. Data validation can help solve or prevent a wide variety of problems. It provides confidence in lab data, risk eduction, good lab practices and is cost effective. This two-day course is designed for those who have responsibilities for environmental data quality. If environmental data quality is important to you, this course is for you. The agenda for this course is below.
The course content includes: 1 - Validation of organic and inorganic data for CERCLA/SARA projects, 2 - The use of data qualifiers and important data quality issues, 3 - Mass spectral data interpretation/validation, 4 - Atomic spectroscopy data validation, 5 - Good Laboratory Practices (GLP), 6 - Good Automated Lab Practices (GALP).
