Background analysis is aimed at technically differentiating between site-related releases and background conditions. Such analyses can enhance the efficiency of response actions by focusing risk assessments and
remediation on site-related releases. This course is intended to familiarize the attendees with environmental background analytical procedures, issues, and challenges. This course follows the Navy Interim Final
Policy on the Use of Background Chemical Levels. Content includes basic definitions and methodologies associated with background analyses, regulatory requirements, negotiation issues, and case studies.

GIS is a tool that can (1) increase program efficiency and cost effectiveness; (2) improve the ability to manage, analyze, and display data from a site and provide a link to historical data; and (3) improve the
decision making and data transfer processes, reduce review time, and improve the quality of deliverables such that conclusions can be better defended.
This four-day course is designed to instruct Navy civilian and military personnel assigned duties as environmental remedial project mangers (RPMs) to develop and implement an up-to-date environmental data
management system incorporating GIS. Specifically designed environmental case studies highlight GIS's cost-effectiveness in data management, transfer, and decision-making.
Attendees will learn the ArcGIS 9.2 computer software program through hands-on computer-based exercises.
GIS software can also be used to perform a geostatistical analysis of environmental data. Geostatistics is a tool that determines the spatial correlation within an observed sample data set and then uses the
correlation to better estimate values at nearby locations where data has not been collected. Attendees will be taught how to use the ArcGIS software to take advantage of spatial correlation of data to develop
more effective and cost efficient site sampling plans and to better characterize site risk assessments.
This is a computer-based training course. Attendees must be comfortable operating complex software applications and are required to possess an advanced understanding of Microsoft Windows operating systems.
Installation Restoration Program personnel who collect or oversee the collection and analysis of environmental samples from uncontrolled hazardous waste sites.
This course trains personnel to perform their duties at environmental restoration sites safely and in compliance with Federal Hazardous Waste and Emergency Response Operation (HAZWOPER) regulations. The course
identifies the requirements for site safety and health plans for investigative and remediation work.The training addresses safety, health, and other hazards potentially encountered at environmental restoration
sites and trains personnel to use work practices and personal protective equipment (PPE) to minimize the risks from hazards. This is an Inter-Service Environmental Education Review Board (ISEERB) approved
course and meets the initial training requirement for 40-hours of off-site instruction for general site workers as mandated by 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 1910.120(e).

This course provides instruction on how to conduct and manage human health risk assessments that are scientifically tenable and defensible, and how to use this information to make risk management actions that
are protective of human health and the environment. Basic scientific theory of risk assessment is presented, however, instruction is focused on the efficient oversight and management of risk assessment that is
in balance with Department of Navy, regulatory and community requirements and concerns. A working case study is presented to demonstrate the practical application of the instruction.

MEC exists on hundreds of thousands of acres of Navy property that may have once been used to manufacture, store, handle, develop and test, transship, or treat munitions. These sites may now be
non-operational ranges, Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) property, or even acreage put to another use such as a housing area. As pressure mounts to remove MEC to allow for re-use, or to make a
contaminated site safe for current use, Remedial Project Managers (RPMs) are faced with a new set of requirements, workers, equipment and technology, and an unprecedented level of scrutiny from
Congress, the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Navy, as well as Federal and State regulators.
This course is intended to give attendees the fundamentals they will need for munitions response projects, as well as a greater confidence in dealing with MEC contaminants, contractors, and project
stakeholders. The course is comprised of classroom instruction as well as practical exercises.
Target Audience: Personnel who plan, scope or oversee response actions at sites containing munitions and explosives of concern (MEC). This includes Remedial Project Managers (RPMs), Remedial Technical
Managers (RTMs), BRAC Environmental Coordinators (BECs), and Engineers in Charge (EICs). The course curriculum is designed for personnel who have at least six months experience and have attended an
introductory environmental restoration course.
This Navy Environmental Restoration Program (NERP) course provides attendees with an overview of the Navy's Hazardous Waste Contaminated Site Clean up Program.

RPMs, BECs, and EICs to complete their assignments and to ensure remedial actions are protective, cost-effective, and that a timely site closeout can be achieved in accordance with the policy of the Department
of the Navy.
NERP Topics provide instruction on: Human Health Risk Assessment, Ecological Risk Assessment, Environmental Background Analysis, Munitions Response Site Management, Environmental Negotiation & Risk
Communication, CERCLA Legal Issues, Removal Actions, National Oil and Hazardous Pollution Contigency Plan (NCP), Optimizing Remedy Selection, Environmental Data Quality Assurance.
