Training Levels

EPA has categorized the training courses into a progressive framework (100–, 200–, and 300–level courses). Tribal environmental professionals can acquire an introduction and a solid foundation in subjects related to water quality through 100–level courses. The 200–level courses build and expand upon the knowledge and skills acquired in the 100–level courses. The 300–level courses provide a degree of training that tribes will need to develop to implement a more scientifically and technically based water quality program on a Reservation.
