Environmental Technology Certificate Program

Audience: Instructional designers, Industry training and students

The National STEM Consortium academic certificate in Environmental Technology is built on a 30-semester-credit model and includes two tracks: (1) HazMat, Safety, and Health, and (2) Water Quality. Graduates have the opportunity to earn nationally recognized federal certificates from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and are prepared for positions focusing on environmental issues, laboratory and field tests, and workplace safety. All of the courses underwent a thorough review by industry subject matter experts. A copy of their review is available here: SME Reviews.
