Best Practices for Environmental Monitoring

Click Here to Register for an Upcoming Class!

This immersion into the world of Environmental Monitoring teaches participants everything they need to know from developing and executing meaningful air and surface sampling to analyzing and interpreting the final results. Those who attend the class should already have mastered hand hygiene and garbing since those skills will not be taught but will be required in the 6.5 hours of laboratory hands on training. Theoretical and scientific underpinnings will be communicated through engaging lectures and labs and will ensure that participants have the opportunity to test what they’ve learned as well as practice and master skills in real life simulations in controlled environments.

Topics Covered in Training:

  • General Concepts of Environmental Monitoring
  • Creating an Effective and Compliant Environmental Monitoring Program
  • Developing a Sampling Plan
  • Air and Surface Sampling Technique
  • Incubation and Reading Samples
  • Choosing a Laboratory
  • Trending Environmental Monitoring Data
  • Investigation and Remediation

Hands-on Labs:

  • Development a  Sampling Plan for the CCTR
  • Best Practice Technique for Donning Sterile Glove
  • Demonstration and Practice
  • Sampling Session Workflow
  • Reading Media
  • Review and Analysis of Laboratory Reports
  • Environmental Sampling Practice Session

eLearning Training:

  • Overview of Environmental Monitoring
  • Viable Air and Surface Sampling
  • Investigation and Remediation of Viable Environmental Monitoring and Personnel Sampling Excursions
  • Personnel Hand Hygiene, Garbing and Gloved Fingertip Sampling

The Best Practices for Environmental Monitoring Attendees have the opportunity to receive an Environmental Monitoring Certificate as well as a Reading Media Certificate.

The course includes 4.5 hours of Home Study Continuing Education and 18.25 hours of Live Continuing Education.
