The goals of a chemical data quality management (CDQM) program are to: 1) generate data of acceptable quality for the intended use; 2) satisfy the needs of the customer and the regulators; 3) generate sufficient data of known quality on the first attempt; and 4) provide an historical record for potential future use. When a CDQM program is used properly, the project manager can readily measure the success of the team in meeting the project-specific data quality objectives (DQOs).
This course will assist any project manager in understanding the quality assurance requirements for a site investigation involving hazardous, toxic and radioactive waste sites.
The text for this course is “Chemical Quality Assurance for hazardous, Toxic and Radioactive Waste (HTRW) Projects,” US Army Corps of Engineer Manual 200-1-6, October 1997.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
