EPCRA (non-313) Online Training for States, Tribes, LEPCs
Important Annoucement Recently EPA learned that many training courses on NETI’s Learning Center learning management system, including the EPCRA non-313 and CERCLA on-line training courses, were blocked and cannot be viewed. This is due to a recent upgrade to the Adobe Connect that included improved security protocols. NETI has been diligently working with EPA’s Office of Environmental Information and Adobe to resolve this issue. We now believe we have a solution to the problem; however, it may take up to one week before the correction is implemented. Please send your email address to NETI@epa.gov and we will notify to you via email when the EPCRA non-313 and CERCLA training courses are available again. Please use as the subject line of EPCRA non-313 and CERCLA training courses in your email. We thank you for your patience with us as we resolve this issue. And we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this caused. This online training course is designed to help state, local, and tribal agencies to know the requirements of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) and its implementing regulations. This course supports these agencies in fulfilling their responsibilities prescribed in law. It is also designed to prepare them for chemical emergencies and to provide compliance assistance to facilities. Participants in this course will learn facilities’ reporting requirements providing information on the storage and releases of hazardous chemicals and how state and local agencies should use that information to prepare and protect the community from chemical emergencies. Learners need to take all four modules in order to complete the course. Each lesson contains text, interactive exercises, interactive Flash-based exercises, and knowledge checks. ATTN: As of May 12, 2016, there is a new version of this course that provides a resume function and a course certificate for the non-EPA personnel who take and complete the course.
