Course Overview:

Inhalation exposure from air and vapors is one of the primary exposure pathway at hazardous waste sites. Sample collection in passivated canisters and analysis by gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC-MS) is the most routinely-used and industry-accepted method for evaluating the risk posed by volatile organic compounds.

The objectives of the course are to:

  • Provide a background to the regulations that are driving Air, Vapor and Soil Gas testing
  • Give an overview of the current CT DEEP RSRs using 2003 Draft Volatilization and Soil Vapor Criteria addressing Vapor Intrusion guidance which is responsible for much of the Indoor, Ambient and sub-surface sampling
  • Provide an overview of the range of analytical methods employed for these determinations
  • Discuss in more detail the principles of the most frequently run methods; MA-APH, EPA-TO15
  • Provide an understanding of the importance of pre-sample planning and developing a Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP)
  • Training on the use of media, field sampling techniques and typical problems experienced with sample collection
  • Provide a basic understanding of quality assessments and usability reviews for decision making associated with Air, Vapor, and soil gas data
