Training and Outreach

The NC WW/GW LC program strives to assist laboratories and laboratory analysts in improving the quality of the environmental data they produce and to help bring them into compliance with state and federal regulations. In this capacity, the program offers a variety of resources for learning including technical assistance visits to laboratories, training workshops, as well as multi-media training material (such as PowerPoint presentations, technical assistance guidance documents, inspection checklist auditor's guides, policy statements, etc.) found throughout the NC WW/GW Laboratory Certification website. This page will be used to list various opportunities.
