Hazardous Waste Compliance Manager (w/DOT Certification)
Managing hazardous waste in full compliance with the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) requires an understanding of requirements that apply at generation, accumulation, storage, transportation, and disposal. Compliance strategies change at each stage and those responsible for hazardous waste management must understand how they are interrelated.
The Aarcher Institute’s Hazardous Waste Compliance Manager™ course is designed to provide both beginning and advanced waste generators, handlers, and managers with the tools and understanding needed to master the complexities of RCRA, while avoiding the confusion and faulty interpretations that can lead to regulatory pitfalls. This 3-day course (+1 day DOT certification) incorporates a series of presentations, in-depth discussions, and practical exercises designed to guide participants towards mastery of RCRA.
RCRA regulations are rigid and detailed. This unique course presents this material in a logical, modular format that incorporates breakout sessions and open discussion to make this material interesting and understandable. Hands-on training exercises are used to demonstrate and teach the complexities of waste characterization and the notification requirements of the land disposal restrictions applicable to all generators. Students are provided with bound handouts, which serve as a useful desk reference.
Anyone who signs uniform hazardous waste manifests must complete Department of Transportation (DOT) training and certification every three years. Our Mastering RCRATM also includes a separate training module that meets this training requirement, and successful completion of onsite testing results in immediate DOT certification.
You will gain a professional working knowledge of the hazardous waste accumulation, storage, transportation, and disposal requirements of RCRA, practical methods of applying the requirements to facility realities, and the most common hazardous waste violations. You will also become familiar with reading, navigating, and applying the latest code of Federal regulations (CFR) for hazardous waste management and hazardous materials transportation enabling you to become a more self-reliant hazardous waste compliance manager. Course registration includes a bound version of applicable CFRs, which is used extensively in class.
