DESCRIPTION: This course provides both the theory and an explanation of the management philosophy behind the various aspects of the IRP to provide integrated education to familiarize students with the requirements, procedures, and responsibilities of the program. It takes a logical approach to the IRP by first developing the physical and regulatory laws that govern environmental restoration. Second, the actual Air Force program is introduced. Included are reviews of the current Research and Development technologies and case studies for actual site remediation.
