CPD Module 8: Remediation and Management

Module Eight - Remediation and Management will be held on Wednesday 30 October 2019 and presented by Lyle Carpenter (WSP) and Andrew Labbett (CDM Smith).

This module aims to provide participants with a broad introductory understanding of remedial approaches and management within the scope of current regulations and the hierarchy of regulatory methods (e.g. NEPM, ANZECC, IWMP, etc).

Who should attend:

This module will target professionals within the contaminated land industry involved in remediation works, investigations or management. 


The course will look at different contaminants for soil and groundwater and teach students how to develop a solution (and apply it) to remediation projects given different possible treatment options (e.g. physical, chemical and biological).
