Dear Friends of Sausal Creek,

Are you interested in learning more about environmental monitoring? Would you like to learn hands on skills and use professional grade instruments to examine water quality parameters like pH, dissolved oxygen, turbidity?

City College of San Francisco's EMSA 22 (Environmental Monitoring, Sampling and Assessment) teaches you those skills and more!

The class runs from Feb 2-May 26, Tue/Thur from 2:10-5:20pm at the CCSF Ocean Campus, 50 Phelan Ave.

You can view the course at CCSF by going here: http://www.ccsf.edu/Schedule/Spring/engineering_and_technology.shtml#Environmental_Monitoring

A detailed syllabus is also available here: http://bitly.com/EMSA22

This short blurb is written by the instructor: Irina Krylova, Ph.D.
EMSA 22 is meant to provide a working understanding of environmental systems, emphasizing the importance of environmental monitoring to gauge an ever-changing landscape. Students will become familiar with essential legislature and regulatory requirements related to water, soil and air safety at federal, state, and local levels. Perhaps most importantly, this class will equip students with practical laboratory and instrumentation skills required for professional environmental monitoring, introducing them to Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) regulations and the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) practices. Students will be taught to use the same instruments employed by field technicians for sampling and monitoring of water, soil and air matrices in order to detect chemical, particulate, and microbiological contaminants that impact the environment and human health. The syllabus can be found here: https://sites.google.com/site/ccsfemsa22/Syllabus

EMSA22 is a part of the CCSF Certificate in Environmental Monitoring and also may be counted toward the CCSF Certificate in Sustainability. It is also CSU transferable. Additionally, EMSA22 is accepted by the CA State Water Resources Control Board toward the eligibility for "grades III-V supplemental specialized training course for the grade 3-5 water treatment exams" (for further detail on CA State Water Board exams please refer tohttp://www.waterboards.ca.gov/drinking_water/certlic/occupations/DWopcert.shtml )

If you have questions, do not hesitate to contact me!

Thank you!
