TEAM Events

Babcock Laboratories holds quarterly Technical Environmental Analytical Meetings, known as TEAM Events. These educational seminars are meant to inform attendees about various regulatory updates and requirements affecting the environmental and food testing industries. Each TEAM event addresses a particular topic and attendees learn from two industry experts. Recent topics include regulatory updates for drinking water, the fourth round of the Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule (UCMR4), the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), groundwater monitoring, and recycled water and water reuse.

Drinking Water Workshop

Our Drinking Water Workshop includes a short course seminar that covers sampling techniques, bottle type and preservation, safety and sample documentation, and analytical methods and testing. The workshop also includes an interactive training portion where attendees receive hands-on sample collection practice on test stations, as well as laboratory observation. Attendees receive up to three contact hours and a certificate of completion verifying that they have received proper education and applied training on drinking water sampling.  

We have not yet determined the date of our next Drinking Water Workshop. If you would like to express interest in attending the next workshop and receive information as it becomes available, please fill out the form below.
