Intermediate (ADVANCED) RCRA

Course Overview:

This eight (8) hour course provides each student with an in-depth study of hazardous waste regulations application with an emphasis on generator compliance, site investigation & remediation, permitting, enforcement, and liability. The course includes a history and overview of hazardous waste management laws and regulations, and presents a guide to complying with the myriad of hazardous waste regulations including recognizing hazardous wastes, managing waste correctly on site, how to properly select, label and mark waste containers, how to prepare shipments for transport to treatment, storage and disposal facilities and how to properly keep records for compliance and enforcement. Further, this course addresses major federal legislation regarding the management and disposal of hazardous wastes, and the clean-up of disposal sites (toxic waste dumps) contaminated by hazardous substances.

In particular, it discusses in detail the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), and the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), otherwise known as "Superfund". Disposal and clean-up issues, such as those involving state restrictions on the interstate and international transportation of hazardous wastes, criminal and civil liabilities for illegal activities, and insurance coverage for clean-up liability are also presented in this course, as well as information on how to comply with the 2006 changes to the Hazardous Waste Manifest System.
