Tuesday's Courses:

LSRP Ethics (Tuesday, February 15 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.

Advancing Brownfield Remediation and Redevelopment: Funding, Financing, and Technical Assistance (Tuesday, February 15 from 5:00pm - 6:00pm)

The construction industry is booming in New Jersey - from residential properties to the ubiquitous warehouses! Many of these new constructions are being built on contaminated properties undergoing remediation. New Jersey has several programs to provide technical and financial support to assist in returning blighted properties to productive use. This 1-hour course reviews these programs, along with new tax credits, loan program, grants, and more so that LSRPs can more successfully guide clients through the processes to make their remediation and redevelopment plans as economical as possible.
