Hazardous Waste Management Online Training Course


DEEP is in the process of migrating the hazardous waste online training course to a different learning management system. This has required deactivation of the course while this process is completed.  Course registrations are not being accepted at this time.

Reopening of the registration portal will be announced once course migration has been completed.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  If you have any questions, you may email us at DEEP.RCRAHelp@ct.gov.

The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection is pleased to present a free online training course to assist businesses in meeting the initial and annual training requirements for hazardous waste generators under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). It is designed as a general overview of the regulatory requirements for handling hazardous waste and is targeted to hazardous waste handlers, managers and supervisors responsible for knowing the law and to assist them in complying with it. If you score 80% or more correct on the final course assessment, you have satisfactorily completed the course and you may print a certificate. Your facility RCRA Compliance Manager should validate the certificate by signing it and then placing it on file at your facility.

The course IS NOT intended to satisfy all of your RCRA hazardous waste training requirements. Additional training, including on-the-job training, with specific information about the actual chemical waste, handling equipment and procedures, emergency procedures, employee job duties, and other circumstances specific to the individual facility should also be completed. You should contact your supervisor, site safety compliance manager or site environmental manager to determine what additional training you will need to ensure that you handle your hazardous waste in compliance with all safety and legal requirements.

To gain access to the course:

  • If you are NEW to the course, you will not be able to register for it until DEEP finishes migrating it to a new learning management system.  See the "Important Update" note at the top of this page for further information. 
  • If you are RETURNING to the course, login using the credentials provided from the CT Education Academy.

Good luck and enjoy the course!
