Implementation of remedial options for contaminated land - training pack (C612TP)

Part IIA of the Environmental Protection Act, 1990 has defined contaminated land and relegated its management to local authorities through the planning process. The government intention to accommodate 60 per cent of the 4.4 million proposed new homes on previously used land has put significant pressure on construction professionals. This training pack is designed to help those involved in the management of contaminated sites to understand the procedures in the implementation of the remedial options. The pack will demonstrate the process of implementing a remedial strategy. Attendance can contribute towards credits for qualification in Continuing Professional Development. There is supplementary information on remedial technology descriptions, group exercises and facilitated discussion. The training is designed to be run as six-sessions in a one-day course, with variation to suit the circumstances of the training course. The workshops in modules 5 and 6 may be used as part of the training day or for self-assessment after the course. The pack may also be used by individuals for self-study.

The pack contains:

facilitator booklet containing notes for all the modules

one set of delegates' notes for photocopying (these can also be printed from the CD-Rom)

a CD-Rom containing PowerPoint presentations for each module and the delegates’ notes.
