1. ITRC 2-Day Classroom Training
Light Nonaqueous-Phase Liquids: Science, Management, and Technology
April 9-10, 2013 7:00 AM - 5:00 PM (Eastern Time), in King of Prussia, PA
ITRC offers this 2-day classroom training course, based on ITRC's Technical and Regulatory Guidance document,
Evaluating LNAPL Remedial Technologies for Achieving Project Goals (LNAPL-2) to assist environmental practitioners
with applying science-based solutions for LNAPL sites. The ITRC guidance was developed through the combined efforts
of environmental professionals, including state and federal regulators, consultants, industry, and community stakeholders.

Groundwater in Fractured Bedrock
April 2, 2013 9:00am - 4:30pm (Check-in time: 8:30am)
This one-day course focuses on practical aspects of groundwater in the fractured sedimentary bedrock of the Newark
Group (Brunswick Aquifer), where thousands of sites have been impacted by industrial contaminants. Remedial
activities at such sites are usually impaired by oversimplified notions regarding groundwater flow and contaminant
migration, as well as by the use of inadequate hydrogeologic characterization methods. Participants will have an
opportunity to improve their understanding of the hydrogeologic framework best used to represent sedimentary bedrock
NJDEP Vapor Intrusion Guidance
April 15, 2013 8:30am - 4:30pm (Check in time: 8:00am)
Vapor intrusion (VI), the migration of volatile compounds from the subsurface into overlying buildings, has received
increased attention over the last decade as a potential exposure pathway of concern in the investigation and remediation
of contaminated sites. Vapors, typically from volatile organic compounds related to spills or releases into the
environment, may migrate in the subsurface and along preferential pathways (such as underground utility lines) and may
potentially impact indoor air quality. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP's) Vapor Intrusion
Technical (VIT) Guidance document provides assistance in the evaluation of this potential exposure pathway and takes
the investigator through the various stages of receptor evaluation, VI investigation, mitigation, monitoring, and closure.
NJDEP Case Study Training for LSRP's
May 1, 2013 9:00am - 4:30pm (Check-in time: 8:30am)
This one-day course developed and instructed by the NJDEP Site Remediation Staff, will be offered on 3 separate dates
in the spring of 2013. The program will be available for Regulatory LSRP CECs OR will satisfy the prerequisite course
requirement for Spring/Fall 2013 Permanent Licensing Exam.
Regulatory Training in Underground Storage Tanks
May 7, 2013 8:30am - 4:30pm (Check-in time: 8:00am)
Whether you are becoming certified for the first time or just need to recertify, you will get the regulatory information
you need to stay current with New Jersey's UST requirements and help your clients or employer avoid potential penalty
liability. LSRPs may work on unregulated USTs (remediation or otherwise), but LSRPs are not required to be hired to
remediate discharges from unregulated USTs. Certified Subsurface Evaluators may still be retained to remediate discharges
from unregulated USTs without the supervision of an LSRP. The certifications for all other categories of UST services
(i.e., installation, closure, tank testing, and corrosion protection) still require the refresher course. The person
responsible for conducting the remediation of a discharge from an unregulated UST who uses a Certified Subsurface Evaluator
to remediate that discharge is required to employ an individual working for a business firm certified in the category of
UST subsurface evaluation pursuant to the UST rules at N.J.A.C. 7:14B-16.
Practical Applications in Hydrogeology
May 9, 16 and 23, 2013 (Optional Lab Day - May 30, 2013) 8:30am-4:30pm (Check-in time on Day 1: 8:00am)
From Darcy's Law to DNAPL, the field of hydrogeology can be mystifying. As an environmental professional, you need
to make sense of the scientific principles and jargon and, most importantly, put them into practice in the field.
This informative program will familiarize you with the theory and practice of hydrogeology, including guiding principles,
basic mathematical principles, the identification of problems, the application of different groundwater models, and the
limitations of those models. The structure of the course allows you to analyze assigned problems during the week between
