Environmental Education for Regulated Entities (E101)

E101 is free training offered by IDEM, CTAP staff for those persons managing environmental responsibilities at Indiana businesses. The goal of this training is to assist environmental managers in understanding current state and federal environmental regulations and determining how they are applied to Indiana businesses.

This training is divided into five (5) modules -- Air, RCRA, Water, Pollution Prevention (P2) for businesses, and Storage Tanks, Spills, and Emergency Planning and Response -- each including a written manual, a PowerPoint presentation, and lesson exercises. The manual is intended to provide a general overview of the regulations currently in effect in the state of Indiana, as well as information on the regulatory background and scientific basis for many of these laws. The information in these chapters has recently been reviewed and edited in 2017 to incorporate regulatory changes; however, as regulations continue to change portions of the manual may get outdated. For specific questions, it is always recommended to consult the Indiana Code (IC), the Indiana Administrative Code (IAC) or to contact the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) specific program areas. We will make note of any regulatory changes that occur between versions and provide that information separately until such time the manual is edited again.
