This course will not only provide you with an understanding of sampling and monitoring of gas and groundwater, but additionally will allow hands-on use of a selection of commonly used instruments, in a simulated set of conditions.

What's in it for me?
By the end of the course you will have:
• An appreciation of the range and uses of relevant equipment
• An understanding of the correct monitoring procedures
• An understanding of the necessary protocols and the methods of quality assurance (QA)
• Had practical experience in the sampling of gas and groundwater
• Appreciate the methods of drilling and borehole construction
• Appreciate the importance of correct and rigorous equipment maintenance

Course content
This course consists of a series of lectures illustrated with examples of the equipment in normal use for a range of sampling and monitoring procedures. Delegates will have the opportunity to experience "hands-on" use of a selection of instruments most commonly used in a simulated set of conditions.
