Hazardous Waste Identification

Hazardous Waste Identification

This course provides a very organized approach to evaluate whether a given waste is a hazardous waste regulated by EPA under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). The analysis begins with determining whether a given waste is considered a “solid waste” under the RCRA regulations and moving on to determining if it fits one of the RCRA requirements for being a hazardous waste.

In this 3-hour online course, students will gain knowledge about procedures for determining whether a given waste is a RCRA hazardous waste. This course is intended primarily for environmental, civil, and chemical engineers.

Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of twenty (20) questions to earn 3 PDH credit.
