Environmental Chemistry Advanced
Environmental professionals with a working knowledge of environmental chemistry are better equipped to understand regulatory agency perspectives and address permit conditions, discharge and emissions limitations, hazardous materials and waste storage and management standards, safety requirements, laboratory analytical reports, and environmental site assessment results.
The Environmental Chemistry Advanced™ course has been developed for environmental professionals without extensive chemistry education or training. Aarcher Institute instructors draw on many years of applied, practical environmental chemistry experience to provide straightforward, understandable explanations of the chemistry considerations and issues that impact important environmental compliance management considerations. Course materials are provided in binders, which serve as useful desk references.
You will gain a new and immediately useful understanding of applied chemistry.
