The Australasian Land & Groundwater Association (ALGA) is committed to delivering a training program that meets your organisations desired learning objectives.
Understanding Your Needs
The full-day training program on “Introduction to Sites Contaminated with PFAS” is set, however a pre-program briefing session is recommended to ensure the day meets your training objectives.
Pre-program - Prior to course delivery a 1 hour briefing session with the facilitator/s is offered
Program notes and materials - Printed course materials are provided to all participants
ALGA requires between 4-6 weeks to develop and organise programmes, subject to availability of facilitators.
Participants details (name, position and contact information) should be advised approx. 14 days before the delivery of the date of the proposed program. Details will be shared with the facilitator/s to enable more effective planning of the course delivery.
Matters discussed and opinions expressed in a session are confidential and will not be disclosed outside the session by our facilitators.
Format of delivery
In-house (preferred) – your organisation to arrange and provide venue, AV requirements etc
7 hours (incl of breaks)
Sessions are limited to a maximum 10 participants per session to ensure quality learning and development outcomes. Multiple courses can be run – it is recommended they are on consecutive days to keep costs down.
The objective of this training would to be to provide basic land and groundwater contamination training to your employees, some of whom have little knowledge regarding the assessment and management of contaminated land and groundwater.
This training would provide an introduction to the approaches taken in Australia and/or New Zealand relating to the assessment and management of contaminated land and groundwater and, in particular, PFAS contamination.
Its goal would be to provide sufficient knowledge for the participants to understand key terminology and the overall regulatory framework when dealing with contaminated land and groundwater. Participants can then build on this information.
The cost for the solution proposed is provided once we have all the information. The fee covers all elements as outlined above.
If multiple courses are not run on consecutive days this will incur additional charges to cover additional costs for flights and accommodation for the facilitator/s. These will be at cost + small administration fee.
