GGS provides ground gas technical training via a range of webinars, seminars, lunch-time presentations and full-day training events.

We understand that sometimes it is difficult to understand and digest the volume of standards and best practice guidance. That is why we provide a range of training options that distil key points into more easily understandable forms.

Here are just some of the many topics that we cover:

  • Ground gas monitoring technologies
  • Landfill and mine gas hazards
  • Data acquisition and interpretation
  • Risk assessment
  • Radon
  • Protection design
  • Development validation and sub-floor void monitoring
  • Internal ambient air monitoring

See the feedback we have received on our training programme at the bottom of this page, which demonstrates the quality of the training we deliver.

Whether you need to brush up on the latest guidance or are new to ground gas contamination issues, simply scroll through the events list below and follow the relevant booking instructions.

We can also offer bespoke training sessions tailored to your needs. So, if you don’t see what you need, get in touch with us.

This series of webinars provides detailed insights into ground gas issues. Each one-hour event is designed to be stand-alone but can be combined with the others into a broader body of knowledge. Starting with first principles, the webinars are designed to be accessible for a range of experience, from graduates new to the topic through to experienced professionals. For further information take a look at our GGS 2021 webinar programme flyer.

It truly is an A-Z, leading through ground gas basics which are often overlooked but form the fundamentals on which the assessments are made. Great concept with interaction between all presenters.Jonathan, Senior Engineer, SANCTUS LTD

Really enjoyed the day and had a few lightbulb moments!Mandy, Senior Environmental Protection Officer, East Northants Council

Very informative and interesting case studies. Good delivery of the presentations and good content. Really enjoyed the Radon talk.Victoria, Geo-Environmental Engineer, ARUP

As a regulator, the information provided will be very helpful. Very grateful that I was able to speak to Simon Talbot about a specific case. Simon’s expertise and experience was very helpful in assisting me decide a course of action.Muttakir Mohammed, Pollution Control Officer, NPTCRC

Great – excellent hands on course. Good demonstration of installation and verification of ground gas membrane.Matt, Senior Geo-Environmental Engineer, NHBC

Very interesting course. It seems that all the attendees are from very reputable companies who focus on the importance of a proper and thorough investigation rather than producing results quickly on behalf of developers. I will certainly be focussing more on the discussion of radon in the reports I review.Joanne, Graduate Environmental Health Officer, Kirklees Council

Great knowledge from presenters. Thoroughly enjoyed.Tyler, Engineer, Groundsafe LTD

One of the most interesting training courses I have attended.Jane, Geo-Environmental Consultant, Hydrock

The A-Z of Ground Gas provides a great insight into all aspects of contaminated land. The material was easily digestible and interesting whether we were learning about different solutions and technologies to deal with contaminated land or how landfill sites are redeveloped into residential or commercial spaces. I found the course extremely educational and thoroughly enjoyed the two days.Richard, Landfill Technician, Birmingham City Council
