RCRA Generator Improvements: EPA OK's Online Hazardous Waste Training
Among the updates that will impact generators in the Final Rule, EPA added some clarification to key parts of RCRA. One such clarification is the addition of online training (i.e., computer-based training (CBT) or electronic training) as an acceptable method for training hazardous waste personnel.
As EPA says in its pre-publication version of the Final Generator Improvements Rule, “many generators already use this method for training workers.” So, EPA explicitly allowing generators to use online RCRA training will simply bring the regulations up to date with current industry practices.
Is your site ready for the big changes to RCRA in the EPA's now final Generator Improvements Rule? Get up to speed at the Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements Update Webinar on November 29.
The new hazardous waste training language will be found in the new 40 CFR 262.17, along with the other training requirements for hazardous waste personnel—which are moving to this new section from their former home at 40 CFR 262.34.
EPA does not specify whether this same language will be added to the training requirements for Treatment, Storage, and Disposal Facilities (TSDFs) at 40 CFR 265.16, but based on the language EPA uses in the Final Rule preamble, online hazardous waste training is presumably acceptable for TSDFs as well.

I can't say enough how pleased I was with this course! Everything finally makes sense.
Lion does a great job summarizing and communicating complicated EH&S-related regulations.
Sr. Environmental Engineer
Best instructor ever! I was going to take my DOT training w/a different provider, but based on this presentation, I will also be doing my DOT training w/Lion!
Hazardous Waste Professional
The course is well thought out and organized in a way that leads to a clearer understanding of the total training.
Hazmat Shipping Professional
The instructor made the class enjoyable. He presented in a very knowledgeable, personable manner. Best class I've ever attended. Will take one again.
Environmental Compliance Manager
I was able to present my scenario to the instructor and worked thru the regulations together. In the past, I attended another training firm's classes. Now, I have no intention of leaving Lion!
Senior Environmental Engineer
Given the choice, I would do all coursework this way. In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything.
Chemical Laboratory Manager
Lion is my preferred trainer for hazmat and DOT.
Convenient; I can train when I want, where I want.
Hazmat Shipping Professional
I was recently offered an opportunity to take my training through another company, but I politely declined. I only attend Lion Technology workshops.
