Data generated by environmental laboratories are used to make strategic decisions for all types of projects (investigation, remediation, compliance, etc.). It is vitally important that the data are of the highest quality to avoid costly resampling and budget overruns. The goal of this course is to provide information so that an individual can conduct an audit of an environmental laboratory. A laboratory audit ensures that the laboratory has quality systems in place, follows good laboratory practices, and generates data of integrity and quality. This course will help you conduct your own environmental laboratory audit.
