General Information
Event Name: Removal Process for RPMs
Hosted By: U.S. EPA
Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation
Event Description:

The Removal Process for Remedial Project Managers (RPM) course focuses on the various aspects of the removal process and various methods of integrating removal actions at National Priorities List (NPL) sites to complete Superfund response activities as quickly and effectively as possible.

By taking the course, participants will achieve the following objectives:

  • Understand the laws, regulations, policies and processes involved in Superfund removal actions. The course provides an overview of removal actions that help RPMs understand the role they play in the Superfund cleanup program.
  • Identify removal authorities, recognize situations in which removal actions are appropriate and initiate removal actions. The course examines approaches to the evaluation and initiation of removal actions, emphasizing such challenges as meeting applicable or relevant and appropriate requirements (ARAR) during removal actions.
  • Summarize the steps to be taken to implement the removal action and complete the necessary closeout procedures. The course provides a step-by-step review of the conduct of a removal action, from initial activities on site through closeout.
  • Apply the RPM’s new knowledge to real-life situations. Participants are challenged to use the information acquired during the course to complete realistic exercises and case studies. They also have the opportunity to consider examples of actual issues and problems that arise during Superfund removal actions and the resolutions of such issues.

The Removal Process for RPMs course is a 2-day comprehensive training course intended for EPA RPMs who have at least six months of experience and are involved, or intend to be involved, with leading a removal action at NPL sites, although more experienced RPMs are encouraged to attend and share their field experiences with the class. 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.*

The CERCLA Education Center (CEC) understands that questions will continue regarding the status of CEC courses currently planned for 2023. Although we hope to be able to hold classroom trainings, the CEC will assess current conditions and make a go/no-go decision for each course six weeks prior to the start of the delivery. The CEC will assess current local and EPA COVID-19 guidelines; current EPA travel policies; and the number of students enrolled in a course before making a decision. Registered students will receive a notification via email if the course is postponed. Information will also be posted to the appropriate Trainex page. Questions may be directed to Jodi McCarty, ICF (jodi.mccarty@icf.com).
