NACT 355 – Advanced Inspector Training

June 24-26, 2014

US EPA Headquarters
1200 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW #6226
Washington, DC 20004




 This course focuses on issues and techniques for the more senior inspector to help enhance and improve their inspection techniques and results.

This course does not focus on any specific media but covers subject applicable to inspections in all media. The course is intended to provide additional tools to obtain information before, during, and after an inspection.  The course will present “best practices” for conducting inspections and give the students an opportunity to discuss how these “best practices” apply or not to their own inspections. Each class will have the opportunity to discuss and evaluate specific issues or areas of interest to them.  The course includes lectures, discussions, exercises, and minor role playing.
