TCC-OEH communities have priority for this class and Zender Environmental will make participant arrangements and provide instruction for it. A travel stipend is available for those that complete this 5-day training.

This course will involve classroom time, hands-on instruction, and field days at a local creek.

During this training you will learn:

  • How to take your own water and soil samples to send for laboratory contaminant testing
  • How to test on-site for surface water fecal coliform
  • How to sample and monitor for the basic water quality parameters using a YSI probe and turbidity meter

Passing this course satisfies the State of Alaska training requirements to become a qualified sampler.

Need more convincing? Trainees with approved QAPPs and appropriate sampling equipment can receive free follow-up assistance to help them complete the State’s requirement for supervised work in the field.

Need even more convincing? Earn University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) course credit for the ENVI 110 Introduction to Water Quality class if you attend and complete this training. The instructor, Sean Peterson is an adjunct instructor. For those who are interested in this opportunity, we will help you register during the class. A section of this training will also focus on one-on-one QAPP development.
