The U.S. EPA requires annual RCRA training for all large quantity generator (LQG) personnel (RCRA Training FAQ). In addition, the U.S. DOT requires training at least every three years for anyone who prepares a RCRA hazardous waste for transport (DOT Training FAQ). Facility personnel who generate and prepare waste for transport must be trained in both the DOT and EPA rules to avoid costly fines and penalties.
This operations-level online program is designed to help meet the EPA training mandates for large quantity generators (40 CFR 265.16) and universal waste handlers (40 CFR 273.36). It will also help meet the DOT general and security awareness and function-specific training mandate for hazardous waste shippers (49 CFR 172.704(a)). Upon completion, students will know how to correctly store RCRA hazardous waste, universal waste, and used oil. They will also learn how to prepare RCRA hazardous waste shipments for transportation.
Registration includes Lion's expert online training curriculum, downloadable notebooks, online tutorials, online help, and downloadable Certificate of Achievement.
