RTFL Webinar Refresher Training (2012)
Hosted by U.S. EPA

This training is only open to RTFLs who have attended the two week initial training course.

The RTFL Training Steering Committee has decided to begin a biannual cycle for Face-to-Face training (i.e., one year Webinar only and one year Face-to-Face only). This year (2012), will be the first year of the biannual cycle and only requires you to attend three Webinar training sessions.

There are THREE REQUIRED WEBINAR MODULES for RTFL Refresher Training in 2012. Each Module is approximately two hours long. Each of the three modules will be offered twice. The content of the modules doesn't "build upon" one another, so you can schedule to take the modules in any order. For your convenience and that of the instructors, the complex of three modules is being offered twice over three consecutive weeks in April and June, 2012.
The Webinars will be conducted using EPA’s Adobe Connect system. The link for RTFL training is:
