Phase I Environmental Site Assessment Course

Course Cost:  $495.00

Course Value
Are you aware the #1 environmental inspection for a commercial real estate transaction is a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) or a Transaction Screen Assessment (TSA)? Did you know that there are no samples taken or testing equipment used in a Phase I Environmental Site Assesment? This comprehensive course will give you an understanding of performing a Phase 1 ESA following the federal requirements under the ASTM-E1527-05 ruling, the All Appropriate Inquiry (AAI) rule, and the difference with the Transaction Screen Assessment ASTM-E1528-06 rule. We will also teach you how easy it is to obtain records, photos, environmental liens, and fill out information that is required for your report.
