Small Hazardous Waste Generator Training

Organization(s) Vermont Small Business Development Center
Project Description The Vermont SBDC is partnering with the VT DEC to develop an interactive online learning course for conditionally exempt generators (CEG), based on the VT CEG Handbook. The concept is to make the regulations more comprehensible (and hopefully more interesting) to small businesses owners, supervisors, and maintenance personnel, who can learn about these in plain English at their own pace.

The course is designed to take no more than 45 minutes to complete and will encourage users to supply generic demographics and answer quiz questions in order to receive a certificate. Users will be able to check their quiz answers and have course information partially customized for auto body, auto service, and printing businesses, plus maintenance personnel.

A "test your regulatory knowledge" pre-quiz will be encouraged in hopes of collecting some outcome data from the course. Additionally, registering will give the user the advantage of remembering quiz scores where they left off, and users will be providing data on 1st quiz results percent correct. Users will need to correct quiz answers until they have 100 percent on all five modules' 10 question quizzes in order to be able to print out a certificate of completion with their information on it. To date, the course format, function, and set-up are complete, and the course should be available on or around October 1, 2005. This project is funded by the EPA.

A collaborative effort between the Vermont Small Business Development Center and the VT DEC Environmental Assistance Office and Waste Management Division (funded through a grant by the EPA and prepared under contract by DSM and Blair Technologies) has resulted in an on-line tutorial for conditionally exempt generators of hazardous waste. The website, www.vtceg.org, was designed to provide Vermont businesses that generate limited amounts of hazardous waste with information they need to know about handling hazardous wastes in their operations. The information found on the website is presented in five different modules and is based on the VT DEC's Conditionally Exempt Generator Handbook. The tutorial also includes information about used oil and universal waste management and features quizzes for users to test their knowledge at the end of each module as well as many useful links.
