Environmental Awareness Bootcamp

Training Overview

The Environmental Awareness Bootcamp sets a framework for compliance for those new to the environmental field and those veterans that need a refresher on current environmental laws and regulations, and how they apply to different industries. The Bootcamp starts off from a broad management perspective of these environmental laws and regulations and as the course progresses moves into an operational level of training that industry professionals see in their day-to-day activities. In addition, BSI instructors do so in an accurate and engaging way that is easy to understand at any level.

Throughout each day BSI will teach proven and practical compliance strategies that can be brought back to an organization or clientele. The Environmental Bootcamp moves beyond the basics and history of laws and regulations and focuses on how these laws and regulations apply and impact the public, industries, facilities, and daily operations. Thousands of EHS professionals have benefited over the years from this unique training experience. Join us for this important seminar and come and network with environmental professionals from around the U.S. Bring your family and make a vacation out of it!
