Toxicology is the quantitative and qualitative study of the effects of toxicants on biological organisms. This intermediate course explains key concepts related to toxicological hazards. Students will be introduced to vocabulary used to describe specific toxic effects, as well as resources available to characterize the hazardous properties of chemicals. This course also covers how toxicants can enter biological organisms and how this information is used in the prevention and detection of toxic exposure. Finally, this course also lays the groundwork for other Level 2 courses by explaining how to calculate, estimate and communicate the values of airborne chemical concentrations in several release scenarios.
