General Information
Event Name: Triad Training for Practitioners
Hosted By: U.S. EPA
Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation
Event Description:

Triad Training for Practitioners is based on best management practices (BMP) implemented by the EPA, partnership organizations, federal and state partners and consultants with regards to remedial response action work. Participants will learn how the Triad Approach can be used to streamline projects in a legal, technically sound and cost-effective manner. 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.
  • Integrate Triad BMPs into traditional project activities. This course illustrates how to use Triad sampling plan design, data collection, analysis and management strategies at various entry points in a typical project timeline.
  • Effectively collect and communicate critical project information. The course provides examples of Conceptual Site Models (CSM) and describes how they are used as the basis for project and sampling plan design, and as a tool for maintaining stakeholder consensus throughout the project life cycle.
  • Design dynamic work strategies (DWS). The course describes the components of a DWS, including (1) methods for verifying performance, (2) using collaborative data sets, (3) methods for real-time decision making, (4) managing sample and small scale variability, (5) designing project and field decision logic, (6) implementing contingencies, and (7) creating streamlined work plans.
  • Recognize and overcome the challenges presented while implementing a dynamic work strategy. The course describes methods for controlling and directing work during dynamic work efforts, which include using unitized costing, setting project ceilings and lowering project costs. Participants will examine how more focused characterization efforts can extend project funds and maximize the data collected.

Triad Training for Practitioners is a 2 ½-day course for those who would like more information on topics such as analytical technologies, in-depth sampling design or system optimization and operation. The EPA can work with training sponsors to customize this training to include facilitated panel discussions, site-specific case studies, technology demonstrations or other material. The target audience includes EPA, federal, state, tribal and private industry technical project managers and stakeholders involved in the development and implementation of BMPs at hazardous waste sites. Attendees of this course should have some exposure to the Triad process and substantial experience in the areas of cleanup and reuse at hazardous waste sites.

*This course is offered free of charge to all registrants who are confirmed to attend.*
