An introduction to sample collection practices for environmental professionals.

 

Fundamentals of Environmental Sampling is a Maxxam introductory training course developed for junior to intermediate environmental staff, and anyone interested in a
refresher on practices and procedures for representative sample collection.

 

This program provides theoretical and hands-on training on all key stages in the lifecycle of an analytical project, including (1) Project Planning, (2) Sample Collection Procedures and (3) Sample Submission. The content is delivered by Maxxam, in a mixed-style combining classroom with outdoor hands-on training, followed by a guided tour of Maxxam’s largest environmental testing laboratory.

 

Participants will receive training on:

  1. Regulatory requirements and industry best practices for the development of analytical project plans, as well as sample collection techniques
  2. How to collect representative environmental samples
  3. Impact of sampling technique to data quality
  4. How to properly collect soil and water matrix samples, including F1/BTEX in soils, VOCs in water, Metals in water (dissolved phase) and F2-F4 hydrocarbons in soil
  5. How to properly fill out a Chain of Custody
  6. How to properly pack a cooler and submit samples to the laboratory

Why send your staff to this program?

  1. Builds a strong foundation of skills; the content addresses the “how” but also, very importantly”, the “why”;
  2. Actual hands-on training; the theory may be easy to follow but the practical portion in an outdoor environment setting is most effective at delivering the take-home messages;
  3. Condensed and to-the-point material, delivered in a format that makes it easy to remember;
  4. Qualified and experienced instructors in the field of site assessment and remediation;
  5. The only training program of its kind in the province.
