||Remedial Design/Remedial Action (RD/RA)
Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation
Remedial Design/Remedial Action (RD/RA) focuses on aspects of the RD/RA phase of a Superfund project and the objectives, issues and challenges that Remedial Project Managers (RPM) face during response planning and implementation. By taking the course, participants will achieve the following objectives:
Identify steps for implementing and completing an RD/RA project under Superfund. The course provides a comprehensive examination of the RD/RA process.
Describe the overall effort needed to conduct an RD/RA project and identify and anticipate the difficulties that can arise during such an effort. The course provides practical guidance that helps both engineers and RPMs who have other backgrounds effectively implement the design and construction phases of a Superfund cleanup.
Describe the role of the RPM as a project manager. The course examines the crucial role of the RPM in planning an RD/RA project; effectively managing contracting, scheduling, budgeting and other aspects of the effort; coordinating activities with states and tribes; conducting effective community relations efforts; and more.
Apply the skills they have developed to real-life situations. The course provides RPMs the opportunity to work through realistic case studies that highlight actual issues and problems that can arise.
RD/RA is a 2-day training course and is intended primarily for RPMs who have two or more years of experience or who currently are or soon will be involved in an RD/RA project. The course is also open to other federal, state and tribal personnel. THIS COURSE IS NOT OPEN TO ACADEMIA, CONSULTANTS, CONTRACTORS OR ANY PRIVATE ENTITIES.
*This course is offered free of charge to all registrants who are confirmed to attend.*
