Tuesday's Courses:

LSRP Ethics (Tuesday, June 14 from 1:00pm - 5:30pm)

In response to feedback from attendees, in 2021, the LSRPA’s Professional Ethics course was revamped to expand to 4 hours to ensure adequate time to review professional ethics, regulatory compliance, and recent Licensing Board decisions. In 2022, we are introducing several new instructors to provide instructional variety and new perspectives/information for the course. This course will explore examples of conduct subject to Site Remediation Professional Licensing Board authority and provide an overview of the administrative, regulatory and technical requirements that cause compliance issues for LSRPs. The course will also provide an up-to-date assessment of Licensing Board decisions, enforcement actions and identify the specific code of conduct items that were most cited within the 12-month period. In addition, the instructors will engage the attendees with "What Would You Do" case scenarios.

Waste Classification and Management for LSRPs (Tuesday, June 14 from 2:30pm - 4:30pm)

What's new in the "waste world" in New Jersey? There is waste on almost every remediation project, even in-situ treatment, and it has a great impact on schedule, cost, compliance and liability. Liability concerns are heightened in the LSRP era with the presence of a license, code of conduct and the Licensing Board. Proper waste classification and management are key to a successful remediation. This course will provide LSRPs and environmental professionals instruction on how to properly identify, classify, treat, dispose of waste material and much more. In addition, recent regulatory developments will be discussed, including the A901 program and the disposal of PFAS-containing wastes.
