Performance Based Environmental Management (PBEM) is a method of project management that relies on establishing, and working towards performance objectives, rather than just managing the process. The goal of PBEM is to be protective of human health and the environment, while efficiently implementing streamlined cleanup processes. The major components of PBEM are: systematic planning, effective communications, agreement of a land use risk strategy, current conceptual site model, decision logic analysis, remediation process optimization (RPO), remediation goal analysis, exit strategy development, and performance-based contracting, including environmental insurance.
The Remediation Process Optimization (RPO) training course addresses how to conduct a technical and programmatic assessment of cleanup system performance and effectiveness to achieve a timely site closeout. An RPO review looks at all processes affecting cleanup effectiveness: cleanup systems, established cleanup levels, established procedures to verify attainment of cleanup goals, and readiness to support a five-year review or any other part of a regulation-mandated process. Other topics that are addressed are life-cycle cost analysis; exit strategies; above ground treatment technologies; data management, analysis, and visualization techniques; and performance-based management.
The Remediation Risk Management training course addresses the process for managing uncontrollable project activities or circumstances that may result in negative consequences to remediation system performance. Managing remedy performance risk should be an integral part of a remediation program’s overall management. Remediation Risk Management is recognized as a vital integrated program management tool that cuts across the entire program, addressing and interrelating cost, schedule, and performance/operational risks.

The Bioavailability of Contaminated Sediments training course describes when and how to assess bioavailability at contaminated sediment sites during the exposure assessment process.
Remediation of contaminated sediments commonly targets the complimentary goals of protecting human health and the environment and restoring impaired environmental resources to beneficial use. Although the selection and implementation of sediment remedies can be straightforward for simple sites, many contaminated sediment sites are challenging from a technical and risk-management perspective. This training course offers a remedy selection framework to help project managers evaluate remedial technologies and develop remedial alternatives (often composed of multiple technologies) based on site-specific data. General categories of contaminated sediment remedial technologies covered in this training course include monitored natural recovery (MNR) and enhanced monitored natural recovery (EMNR); in situ treatment; capping (conventional and amended); and removal (dredging and excavation).
