This course has been approved by the LSP Board for 4.0 hours of "technical” (non-DEP) continuing education credit (Course #1352). This course was previously offered in October 2016. 

For the “hands-on” portion of the webinar, participants are expected to be able to work on an Excel window with MassDEP spreadsheets while also on the Zoom platform.  In addition, participants will need to print paper copies of some slides in advance of the webinar to use for this portion.

Course Description: 
The course objective is to give participants a solid understanding of the valuable applications of the Method 3 Short Forms screening tool, as well as the limitations.

This course is intended to familiarize participants with the purpose and content of the Method 3 Short Forms screening tool which has been provided by MassDEP to assist in streamlining the Method 3 risk assessment process.  While Method 3 risk assessments are site specific, many exposure scenarios have become sufficiently standardized to allow for a template approach utilizing the Short Forms.  The course includes a general overview of risk assessment and the Short Forms and a discussion on how to develop exposure point concentrations.  In addition, a practical “hands-on” application using the Short Forms is included during which participants can practice on their computers.
