W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa.-Screening for Vapor Encroachment into Property Involved in Real Estate Transactions is an ASTM Technical and Professional Training course to be held six times during the first half of 2012.

Vapor encroachment into the subsurface of a property involved in a real estate transaction can potentially create significant liability for owners and prospective purchasers and have a material impact on property value. The screening methodology in ASTM E2600-10, Standard Guide for Vapor Encroachment Screening on Property Involved in Real Estate Transactions, was developed to facilitate this assessment by environmental professionals.

The course will review the rationale behind the standard's development; discuss the tiered methodology used; and the implications for environmental professionals involved in conducting property environmental due diligence. The screening methodology associated with Tiers 1 and 2 of the standard will be reviewed in detail and case studies will be included.

Participants will also be able to take an examination at the end of the class and receive an ASTM certificate stating that they have completed the course and passed an exam.
