Atlanta Buckhead

Course Overview:

A lot of new regulations and updates to current regulations have come out recently under the Obama Administration and now the pendulum is swinging back right as President Trump has taken office. What does this mean for environmental regulatory programs, the U.S. EPA and your facility? It could mean significant implications for companies across a wide range of industry sectors and you need to start preparing now.

The Environmental Bootcamp will explore these U.S. EPA air, water and waste programs and other environmental issues to help you prepare for what comes next. In addition the Evironmental Awareness Bootcamp will not only explore these regulations but also provide a thorough breakdown of each while providing you with the latest regulatory updates and future projections that could impact your industry.

This course is designed for those new to the environmental industry or certain programs and for those veterans that need a good refresher and update. The Environmental Bootcamp covers in detail numerous federal and state, environmental, air, water and waste regulations that may impact your facility. From day one, we will take you through each of these regulations in detail, setting a framework for the rest of the seminar. Day 3 and 4, we will take you on the ground and teach you how these regulations apply to your organization and how to keep in compliance. Throughout each day we will teach proven and practical compliance strategies that you can bring back to your facility or organization. In addition, this seminar is a wonderful chance to meet and converse with other environmental professionals in your industry. Bring the family and make a vacation out of it!
