Waste Age magazine and the University of Wisconsin-Madison Solid and Hazardous Waste Education Center have joined to offer the Developing and Operating Solid Waste Landfills Continuing Education Course.
The course is designed to provide continuing education opportunities to people who have an interest in solid waste disposal issues, including landfill owners and operators, landfill managers, people associated with developing and designing landfills, regulatory agency specialists, and the general public.
There are no prerequisites. Anyone who has an interest in landfilling can, if they read the lessons and do the homework, successfully complete the course.
At the completion of the lessons, course enrollees will be given exams, and will be eligible to apply to their state regulatory agency for 2.0 continuing education credits (CEUs) (20 hours of training) toward maintaining their operator or manager certification. Click here for more information.
