Course Overview:

A lot of new regulations and updates to current regulations have come out recently especially under numerous Clean Air Act programs but also the NPDES program, TSCA, USTs, RCRA Solid Wastes and more. It's time to brush up on your environmental regulatory knowledge and get up-to-date on these environmental regulatory programs and how they may impact your facility. Recent changes could mean significant implications for companies across a wide range of industry sectors and you need to start preparing now. This training is designed for those new to the environmental industry or certain programs and for those veterans that need a good refresher and update.

The Environmental Bootcamp will explore U.S. EPA air, water and waste programs, some state programs and requirements and other environmental issues to help you prepare for what comes next. In addition the Environmental Awareness Bootcamp will not only explore these regulations but also provide a thorough breakdown of each while providing you with the latest regulatory updates and future projections that could impact your industry.

Throughout the first couple of days we will cover the regulations of each program in detail and then circle back around and review how these regulations may impact your facility and your day-to-day operations, setting a framework for the rest of the seminar. Day 3 and 4, we will take you on the ground and teach you how these regulations apply to your organization and how to keep in compliance. Throughout each day we will teach proven and practical compliance strategies that you can bring back to your facility or organization. In addition, this seminar is a wonderful chance to meet and converse with other environmental professionals in your industry. Bring the family and make a vacation out of it!
