General Information
Event Name: Superfund Essentials
Hosted By: U.S. EPA
Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation
Event Description:

Superfund Essentials provides an awareness of the purpose, legal framework and implementation of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA). Participants are introduced to the various components of the Superfund process.

By taking the course, participants achieve the following objectives:

  • Understand the evolution of the Superfund program. The course explores the origin, the accomplishments and future of the Superfund program.
  • Understand the statutory and regulatory basis for the authorities of On-Scene Coordinators (OSC) and Remedial Project Managers (RPM). The course provides an overview of the roles of the OSC and RPM as they are defined in laws, regulations, policy, and guidance, including a comparison of authorities and liabilities.
  • Learn about the three types of response activities defined under CERCLA. The course provides an overview of the components of the removal, remedial and enforcement programs.

The Superfund Essentials course is a 1-day awareness-level course geared towards EPA employees new to the Agency or to the Superfund program as well as other federal, state and local stakeholders. This course does not meet the inspector training requirements of EPA Order 3500.1 for OSCs and RPMs. This course is not available to contractors. Regional Superfund programs interested in offering this awareness-level course to stakeholders should contact Gary Turner, EPA Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation (OSRTI), at turner.gary@epa.gov for details.
