PFAS Training

PFAS In-Person Workshops

The ITRC PFAS teams have planned a series of training events led by experts from state and federal agencies, academia, and private industry. The training events will explore the key elements for characterizing and managing PFAS impacted sites. Topics of discussion include: site characterization (sampling and analysis), complex mechanisms that impact fate and transport, current and potential remediation technologies, AFFF, and PFAS risk communications. State and federal environmental and health agencies, tribes, local governments, communities and others interested in learning about PFAS are encouraged to attend. The training events are FREE for state and federal employees, academics, and public stakeholders. Travel scholarships are available for State staff in limited quantity for each of the events.

For questions and to inquire about receiving a travel scholarship, please contact Carolyn Sistare at [email protected] or 202-266-4932 .

Upcoming PFAS Events - Postponed Due to Coronavirus

No training sessions are scheduled at this time.

PFAS Roundtables

The PFAS Roundtable Sessions offer a unique opportunity to interact directly with PFAS experts from around the country on a different group of topics for each session. Participants are requested to submit questions in advance of the event to be addressed during this extended Question and Answer discussion with expert panelists. The sessions are intended to be tailored to the specific needs of its participants, with the expectation that the participant will have a basic understanding of these topics prior to attending the Roundtable Session.
