Environmental Education for Regulated Entities (E101)

E101 is a free training series offered by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) Compliance and Technical Assistance Program (CTAP) staff. E101 trainings are designed to educate individuals in charge of managing environmental responsibilities at Indiana businesses, but is open to anyone interested in the subject matter. The goals of this training series are to assist environmental managers in understanding current state and federal environmental regulations, determine how the regulations apply to Indiana businesses, and demonstrate how to implement practices that strengthen environmental compliance and sustainability efforts.

This training series is divided into five modules:

  1. Air Module (Permitting and Compliance)
  2. Pollution Prevention (P2) for Indiana Businesses
  3. Tanks: Compliance, Planning, and Spill Response
  4. Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) in Indiana
  5. Water Module (Permitting and Compliance)

Each module includes a written manual, a PowerPoint presentation, and lesson exercises. These resources are intended to provide a general overview of the regulations currently in effect in the state of Indiana, the regulatory background and scientific basis for many of these laws, as well as, permitting and compliance implementation strategies for businesses.

Currently, the Air Module (Air Permitting and Compliance) and Pollution Prevention (P2) for Indiana Businesses are available. The remaining three modules are forthcoming in 2020 and 2021.

The information in these modules has recently been reviewed and edited in 2018 and 2019 to incorporate regulatory changes; however, as regulations continue to change, portions of the training materials may get outdated.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. CTAP will make note of any regulatory changes that occur between versions and provide that information separately until such time the module is edited again.
