Training Coordination Team Mission
The OLEM Training Coordination Team was created in 1986 as the OSWER Training Forum to respond to training needs of EPA and state personnel involved in solid and hazardous waste cleanup and emergency response. The members of the forum coordinate their efforts to provide training to EPA, federal, state, and tribal personnel responsible for regulatory and enforcement activities.

Launch of RCRA Training Website

On March 3, 2017, the Office of Resource Conservation and Recovery (ORCR) launched the RCRA training website. This RCRA training website is a result of EPA and states working together to provide easy access to a comprehensive compendium of RCRA training materials, including online courses and videos. Additionally, this workgroup developed Individual Development Plans (IDPs) which sort the training materials by subject matter area (e.g., basic curriculum, permitting, corrective action).

We hope this training website serves as a valuable resource to EPA and states to build and maintain expertise and institutional knowledge of the RCRA program. We intend to regularly update this website with new training materials as they become available.

We also announce that, with the launch of this website, we are making available brand new training on Waste Analysis Plans which follows publication of the updated 2015 Waste Analysis Plan Guidance.

If you do not currently have an account for the ERTPVU you will need to register and set up a password at https://ertpvu.org/Register.aspx and then login using your email and password at https://ertpvu.org/. Note: the RCRA training materials are only available to EPA, states, tribes, and other federal agencies.

New Requirements for Entering Federal Buildings
