    NEW COURSE Geographical Information Systems (GIS) for LSRPs

    8:00 am-12:30 pm
    2019.05.22

    NEW!
    Geographical Information Systems (GIS) for LSRPs
    May 22, 2019 | 8AM to 12:30pm

    This half-day course is intended for non-users of GIS technology. It is NOT hands-on with GIS software and participants will NOT learn how to build, manage or use GIS databases.

    Geographic Information Systems and their underlying databases incorporate location information along with other data to allow LSRPs to conceptualize the position of data points at their sites along with the hydrogeologic and hydrochemical signatures associated with these points. GIS databases can help to minimize inaccuracies and errors in the position of this data with respect to the site and make it easier for the LSRPs to visualize site conditions and behavior over time. The use of appropriate GIS and database development techniques can be particularly helpful when contaminated sites lie close to boundaries or sensitive receptors, and the status or data trend of the sample locations needs to be known.

    Students attending this course will obtain a basic and introductory understanding of GIS and the underlying data format, site characterization tools available in GIS, availability of public GIS compatible data, and methods for linking field collected data with GIS. This course is developed as lecture style with descriptions and presentations of concepts and case studies, students are not required to bring their own computers.

    COURSE DESCRIPTION 

    The course is formatted to provide students with a baseline understanding of GIS database development and capabilities. GIS will be put in context with existing data packages more commonly used to facilitate students understanding of GIS’s capabilities. The course will provide students with an understanding of:

    1. What a GIS is, what the limitations are and uses of GIS.
    2. What existing database and mapping platforms are compatible with GIS software.
    3. How to locate GIS resources to assist in procuring site data (mostly free to the public) to assimilate with an LSRP specific site.
    4. How to develop a properly formatted database in order to make data more GIS compatible or to work with a GIS professional more effectively.
    5. What data presentation techniques are available including options for hosting data on-line (kml) and interfacing site data such as images and laboratory information with GIS.

    If you are becoming UST certified for the first time or if your certification is in need of renewal, this class is for you! Stay current with New Jersey’s UST regulatory requirements and help your company and clients avoid costly penalties and fines.

    The New Jersey Underground Storage Tank (UST) regulations (NJAC 7:14B Subchapter 13 & 16) require that all personnel who install, close, test, and design corrosion protection systems for regulated USTs be certified as well as those subsurface evaluators (SSE) who perform services on unregulated USTs (UHOT).  All owners/operators of regulated USTs who are persons responsible for remediation must retain the services of a Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) as of May 7, 2012.

    The NJDEP requires professionals who work on USTs to be trained, certified/recertified every three (3) years. This NJDEP approved course fulfills the NJDEP course requirement for regulatory training and must be taken within one year prior to renewal. Professional engineers and plumbing contractors, exempt from the certification examination, must attend the course within one year of certification.
