There is an increasing demand for environmental professionals in the multidisciplinary field of Contaminated Site Assessment, Remediation and Management (CSARM). The program, developed by the School of Life Sciences at UTS Faculty of Science with the support of NSW Environment Protection Authority (NSW EPA) and senior industry professionals, has been successfully training environmental professionals for the past 11 years. Its aim is to help them extend their knowledge base and update their skills in this area, as well as form professional networks with colleagues in industry and government.
Commencing in February 2020, each module runs for between 2 1/2 and 3 days and includes a mixture of lectures, site visits, case studies and workshops to provide a flexible and interactive learning program.
The modules address EPA and NEPM guidelines and new legislation as well as the requirements for consultant certification.
Who should attend?
- Environmental scientists, engineers, managers and consultants wanting to take their career to the next level
- Professionals aspiring to become a site auditor, or certified environmental consultant, as part of their career development
- Environmental engineers, environmental health and planning officers from all levels of government as well as occupational hygienists
- Environmental consulting firms wanting further training in CSARM for their recent graduates
- Science and engineering graduates looking to transfer their skills and experience to the field of CSARM
- Environmental professionals considering a postgraduate qualification
The presenters include regulators from NSW EPA; academic specialists, contaminated site auditors and professionals and experts in environmental law and risk assessment.
The CSARM Short Courses can help achieve your Continuing Professional Development (CPD) goals. For example the EIANZ CEnvP Contaminated Land Specialist scheme requires 100 CPD points over two years. For every hour of CPD you get two points which means that the average CSARM Module attendance gives you 40 points towards achieving and maintaining your certification. In addition, course presenters can claim five points per hour for face to face instruction. For details about consultant certification schemes, visit the CEnvP or CPSS CSAM schemes.
