About Trainex

In partnership with the Interstate Technology Regulatory Council, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provides a range of training information to EPA, other federal agency, state, tribal, and local staff involved in hazardous waste management and remediation. This site includes training schedules for deliveries of many courses - both classroom and Internet-based. It is operated under contract by Environmental Management Support, Inc.

Many EPA and other federal offices provide training relevant to hazardous waste remediation, site characterization, risk assessment, emergency response, site/incident management, counter-terrorism, and the community’s role in site management and cleanup. Trainex’s other EPA partners include:

  • The Community Involvement University (CIU) provides opportunities for headquarters and regional staff from EPA programs to build skills needed for successful community involvement, including facilitation, risk communication, and cross-cultural collaboration.
  • Environmental Response Training Program (ERTP) courses are designed for personnel who respond to or who investigate and clean up abandoned hazardous waste sites. Training is provided in safety and health as well as in the various technical operations needed to identify, evaluate, and control hazardous substances that have been released.
  • The National Enforcement Training Institute (NETI) trains Federal, state, local and tribal lawyers, inspectors, civil and criminal investigators, and technical experts in the enforcement of the Nation's environmental laws.
  • The CERCLA Education Center (CEC) offers EPA and other environmental professionals training courses on the many aspects of Superfund and the latest environmental technologies.

EPA’s OLEM Training Coordination Team comprises Training Coordinators in EPA headquarters and Regional offices who develop, plan, and schedule training to meet the needs of EPA, other federal, state, and tribal hazardous and solid waste personnel.

Trainex provides course descriptions, schedules and online registration links for all these courses as well as others. See Other Training Resources on the left menu bar for additional EPA course opportunities and links to other government and non-government training.

Training Coordinators, On-Scene Coordinators (OSCs), Remedial Project Managers (RPMs), Permit Writers, Corrective Action Managers, Site Assessment Managers (SAMs), Enforcement staff, Community Involvement Coordinators (CICs), State Program Managers, and others will find training courses and information directly targeted to their needs.
