There is an increasing demand for environmental professionals with Contaminated Site Assessment, Remediation and Management (CSARM) experience. It is a complex field of environmental management and, with the support of NSW Environmental Protection Agency (NSW EPA) and industry consultants, UTS Science School of Life Sciences has developed a program of short course modules to help environmental professionals update their specific area of expertise, extend their knowledge base and network with colleagues in industry and government.
Commencing in February 2018, each module runs for between 2 1/2 and 3 days and includes a mixture of seminars, site visits 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.
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 more details visit the EIANZ CEnvP website.
