CERCLA Education Center Overview

The CERCLA Education Center (CEC) offers U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on-scene coordinators (OSC), remedial project managers (RPM), site assessment managers (SAM), and other environmental professionals training courses on the many aspects of Superfund and the latest environmental technologies. The courses provide not only basic definitions and procedures, but detailed presentations on EPA's role with other federal agencies as well.

The CEC is an important part of EPA's Office of Land and Emergency Management (OLEM) continuing mission to coordinate and improve workforce development programs through training. The program is designed so that participants can easily schedule the training that most applies to their job performance. OSCs, RPMs, and SAMs can take basic Superfund training and more advanced technical training.

There is no tuition for CEC courses and, upon completing the course, each participant receives a certificate.

Participants also receive reference materials that they can use later on the job.
