ASTM is one of the world's largest voluntary standards development organizations. Recognizing the need for authoritative site assessment standards, ASTM pulled together environmental professionals, real estate and insurance professionals, lawyers, and government representatives. These members of Committee E50 and its Subcommittee E50.02 on Commercial Real Estate Transactions developed the standards upon which this course is based. For more information on Committee E50 contact Molly Lynak or go to our E50 technical committee page.
If your state has a continuing education requirement for license renewal, ASTM training courses and ASTM membership can help you meet that requirement.
Learning will be assessed through a series of question and answer sessions.
