8:30am - 4:30pm (Check in time: 8:00am)

Next offering TBD.


This program is designed for the non-scientist and will provide students with a basic understanding of geology, hydrogeology, and environmental chemistry. The fundamental principles will be presented in terminology that makes it easy to understand…even if your only background is high school chemistry. You will also learn how to use this information when evaluating environmental conditions at your site or property.

Featured Topics

  • Geological discussions will cover earth processes, rock and mineral identification, sediments, soils, and man-made fill materials.
  • Hydrogeology discussions will cover the water cycle, groundwater flow/movement, well construction methods, and groundwater supply development and protection.
  • Chemistry discussions will cover natural groundwater chemistry, common pollutants, the migration of contaminants through soil and groundwater, sampling techniques, analytical methods, and the interpretation of laboratory data.

Who Should Attend?

This course is appropriate for those who:

  • Develop, review, or use hydrogeologic reports
  • Purchase environmental services
  • Make decisions regarding environmental policies

This seminar will also provide valuable information for real estate professionals involved in property appraisals or transactions.
