The Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has launched a new online training course to assist businesses in meeting the initial and annual training requirements for hazardous waste generators.
The Hazardous Waste Management Training Course is designed as a general overview of the regulatory requirements for handling hazardous waste and is targeted to hazardous waste handlers, managers and supervisors responsible for knowing the law and to assist them in complying with it.
DEP Commissioner Daniel C. Esty said, "This training is an example of putting technology to use to better serve the public and business community. Through E-Government services the DEP is providing an easy and convenient way for users to efficiently obtain important training and knowledge."
This online course is readily accessible, simple to use, and is free of charge. If a participant scores 80% or more correct on the final course assessment, a certificate may be printed to document that the training has been satisfactorily completed. Generators may use this certificate as part of their personnel training documentation. By searching "RCRA Help" or "RCRA compass" on the CT DEP Website you will find additional hazardous waste assistance.
The DEP developed the online training course with the Connecticut Distance Learning Consortium (CTDLC). Established under the Board for State Academic Awards, the same board that oversees Charter Oak State College, the CTDLC is a public agency partially supported by state funding that provides support and services to meet the ever increasing demands of developing and delivering effective technology enhanced learning opportunities.
Development of the course was supported by Supplemental Environmental Project funds resulting from hazardous waste enforcement actions.
