Environmental Remediation Technician: EPA Environmental Job Training Program

The program offers an opportunity to participate in an intensive six-week training program. Participants who qualify receive technical training in environmental and occupational safety and health, including hazard abatement, and site remediation. The training is supported by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The courses allow participants to apply for state licensing in both Missouri and Illinois as lead and asbestos abatement workers, if eligible. Coursework in ecosystem restoration is also included to ensure participants are able to tap into the emerging “green jobs” market.

TRAINING OVERVIEW

The primary goal of the Environmental Job Training Program is to prepare people with the knowledge and skills necessary to safely work in the abatement and remediation of asbestos, lead and other hazardous materials. The coursework was chosen to meet the needs of employers in the St. Louis Metropolitan Region so that program participants can pursue a career in the environmental remediation industry and maintain a living wage. The core curriculum focuses on the skills critical for entry-level work in the field. The training is broken into various modules, totaling 234 hours of training, and qualifies students for licenses and/or certification in Missouri and Illinois. These licenses and certifications are the key to successful job placement. The final module is a capstone course designed to reinforce important concepts and provide students with firsthand views of St. Louis area remediation sites.
