Course Description

COURSE:    On-Demand AF RCRA Annual Refresher/Hazardous Waste Accumulation Seminar

OBJECTIVE:  For each student to comprehend the technical and regulatory requirements of hazardous waste accumulation, and be able to manage and operate compliant initial accumulation points within the work center at the installation level.

DESCRIPTION:  This seminar provides an overview of regulatory issues and some discussion of technical issues appropriate to installation-level hazardous waste accumulation. Topics include an overview of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), waste identification, waste characterization, accumulation and storage, and universal waste management. A comprehensive RCRA training experience requires both this seminar and additional information and materials provided by others at your installation or through other sources. This seminar meets the requirements for your “RCRA annual refresher training”, as long as your installation hazardous waste management approves.
