ABOUT US

Mission Statement

The Environmental Management Institute at Ivy Tech Community College provides training, information, and compliance assistance for workers, managers, regulators, and concerned citizens. It promotes the understanding and utilization of prudent chemical management practices to protect human health and the environment.

Ivy Tech serves communities across Indiana, providing world-class education and driving economic transformation. It is the state’s largest postsecondary institution and the nation’s largest singly accredited statewide community college system. It serves as the state’s engine of workforce development, offering high-value degree programs and training that are aligned with the needs of its communities, along with courses and programs that transfer to other colleges and universities in Indiana. It is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and a member of the North Central Association.


Who We Are and What We Do

More than three decades ago, several individuals came together with an ambitious idea: connect health and safety information with those who need it. That idea served as the basis for the Environmental Management Institute, which opened its doors in 1990. Although based in  the township of Speedway, the Institute provided training in the handling of asbestos, lead, and hazardous materials throughout the midwest. A stellar combination of knowledgeable  instructors and expertly-crafted courses soon made the Institute a household name in the environmental health and safety community.

We have continued this mission into our newest chapter with Ivy Tech Community College. In summer of 2019, we merged with Ivy Tech and moved across town to the Fairbanks campus in Lawrence. Our 5000-square foot facility on the west side of Indianapolis provides us with ample space to provide both classroom and hands-on training year round. In our new facility, we still offer the numerous quality OSHA, EPA, DOT, and HUD compliance courses that industry professionals have come to expect from us. Workers, managers, regulators, and concerned citizens alike still turn to the Institute for their asbestos, lead, and hazardous materials training needs.

Each year, we train thousands of people in dozens of different courses, all of them related to the proper management of hazards. We are Indiana’s largest asbestos and lead trainer, providing courses to workers, supervisors, inspectors, planners, and many more. We are officially licensed in Indiana and Illinois, and most of the training certificates we provide can be used in multiple other states.

We are also Indiana’s largest private sector in-person trainer for the OSHA HAZWOPER standard, covering emergency response, waste-site cleanup, and RCRA TSDF disciplines. We are the proud Indiana training partner in the Midwest Consortium for Hazardous Waste Worker Training. This Consortium has provided premium training courses for the midwest since 1988, funded in part by support from the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS).

We hope you will take the opportunity to browse our course offerings. Feel free to contact us with any questions about our courses or environmental or occupational health and safety. We may also be able to provide custom training to suit your needs. Our contact information can be found in the panel to the right, and our Recently Asked Questions section can be found below.

Joan Ketterman

Greg Sauer

Justin Shuller

Jack Leonard, PhD.

Trainer Trainer Trainer President Emeritus

If you call to arrange a customized training, you will speak to Joan at some point. As our director, she divides her time between managing the program and teaching multiple lead, asbestos, and DOT hazardous materials courses. 

Joan came to the Institute with more than a decade of K-12 teaching experience. During the early days of the EPA’s AHERA rule, Ms. Ketterman moved from teaching in schools to doing asbestos work within them. As a consultant, she conducted numerous asbestos building inspections, wrote a variety of management plans, participated in virtually all aspects of asbestos abatement projects, and directed technical training programs. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Western Michigan University and a Master of Arts in Teaching from Saginaw Valley State College. 

Greg has been a contractor in the Indianapolis area for more than 25 years.

He specializes in 1890’s Victorian restorations.

Mr. Sauer brings an eclectic set of skills to the Institute, as he has done work ranging from energy audits for the Indiana Builders Association to working at Zion Nuclear Power Station. He has training in various lead, asbestos, and OSHA disciplines. 

The newest member of our training team, Justin Schuller holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Indiana University.

There, he spent hours in biology and chemistry labs, working with everything from hydrochloric acid and methylene chloride to fruit flies and E. coli.

Justin is actively involved in several Local Emergency Planning Committees, as well as the Indiana Traffic Incident Management Effort. He now serves as the lead trainer for HAZWOPER Emergency Response and Asbestos Supervisor courses. 

Since the founding of the Institute with Tom Neltner (now of the Environmental Defense Fund) in 1990, Jack’s determination and resolve has brought the Institute to its premier status today.

 

Dr. Leonard holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from Harvard University and a Ph.D. in Chemistry and Biology from the California Institute of Technology. Jack officially retired in March of 2019, but he can still frequently be seen around the Institute.

He fields the toughest client questions, and occasionally teaches a class or two.

State and federal law (EPA, OSHA and DOT) requires the use of accredited abatement workers for asbestos removal projects involving more than small amounts of asbestos. This course not only meets the state and federal training requirements, it also prepares participants to conduct jobs to ensure that the work is done safely and efficiently.

Under its AHERA Asbestos in Schools Rule, EPA mandated that all public, nonprofit private, and Defense Department K-12 schools must have an updated management plan for each building that leases, owns, or otherwise uses as a school building even if there are no asbestos-containing building materials (ACBM) in such buildings.

Thus, the management planner must work with the building owner to accomplish two principal tasks:

  1. To prepare a management plan for all buildings with or without ACBM, and
  2. To make recommendations for the proper management of asbestos in all buildings with ACBM.

Course Features

  • Reviewing inspection reports.
  • Assessing asbestos hazards.
  • Regulations affecting building owners.
  • Selecting from the five AHERA response actions to safely and cost-effectively manage asbestos in buildings.
  • Preparation of management plan, including a complete Operations & Maintenance program.

After Class Participants Receive:

  • Institute course manuals.
  • Useful job aids and forms for completing the task.
  • Classroom training.
  • Required certification examination.
  • Hands-on experience in plan preparation.

Certification Information:

Asbestos Building Inspector is a pre-requisite to get a management planner license. In addition to completing the Management Planner course and scoring at least 70% on the course exam, you must meet the individual state requirements to receive a state license. This generally involves completing the state application, paying a fee, and meeting the experience/education requirements. For example, in Indiana management planners must either have a post-secondary degree in one of several specific disciplines or one year of specific building-related experience.

Project designers work with building owners and abatement personnel to ensure that the project can be conducted safely and with minimal risks to building occupants. They prepare the work specifications for response actions (which may include asbestos removal, encapsulation, or enclosure).

In the AHERA rule for K-12 schools, the U.S. EPA required that local education agencies obtain the services of an accredited / licensed project designer before beginning most response actions affecting friable asbestos-containing building materials. Later the EPA extended the accreditation program to include persons designing certain asbestos projects in public and commercial buildings, namely:

  1. response and removal actions, other than small-scale, short-duration maintenance activities;
  2. maintenance activities that disturb friable ACBM, other than SSSD activities;
  3. responses to major fiber release episodes.

Course Features

  • Recognition of  ACM (asbestos containing materials) and ACBM (asbestos containing building materials).
  • Health effects of asbestos.
  • Regulations affecting asbestos in buildings and on structures.
  • Procedures for managing asbestos in place.
  • Procedures for safely removing asbestos

After Class Participants Receive:

  • Institute course manual.
  • Institute Compendium of Asbestos Rules.
  • Classroom training.
  • Design exercise.
  • Required certification examination.

Certification Information:

In addition to completing the course and scoring at least 70% on the course exam, you must meet the individual state requirements to receive a state license. This generally involves completing the state application, paying a fee, and meeting the experience/education requirements. For example, in Indiana, project designers must either have a specific post-secondary degree or must have a high school degree and be able to demonstrate ability in the design or supervision of specific types of construction or asbestos projects.

Our courses are accepted for licensing in Indiana, Illinois and in states requiring only EPA approval, such as Kentucky, Michigan, and Ohio. Call us regarding other states you might be interested in.

Although OSHA does not require licensing, it does require that workers, competent persons, and inspectors receive annual refresher training equivalent to the EPA-approved training courses. These courses do fulfill all OSHA requirements.

The Institute's approved refresher courses bring you up-to-date on changes in federal, state, and local regulations, provide details on state-of-the-art work practices, review the basic information included in the initial accreditation course, and offer participants an opportunity to raise questions and discuss common concerns with other asbestos professionals.

Course Features:

  • Update on state, federal and local asbestos regulations
  • Examination for state reaccreditation.

Certification Information:

To remain licensed/accredited to conduct asbestos abatement, inspections, or to prepare management plans, you must complete an approved refresher course in each specialty. The Institute courses are accepted in Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, and in all states that accept EPA-approved courses. Persons completing the course and attaining at least 70% on the course examination will be issued a certificate for completing the licensing/accreditation process.

Note: Although not mandated by the federal rule, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky (and several other states) require that all persons taking a refresher course must pass a course examination with the minimum of 70%. The examination and a review of the material covered in the initial course are a part of each course.

It is important to complete your refresher training in a timely fashion. Although the federal rule allows you to miss your refresher training for a day less than one year, Indiana requires that you take it within 18 months of the last valid training or re-take the initial course. (And, of course, you cannot perform any work while your license is expired.)

The OSHA HAZWOPER standards (29 CFR 1910.120 and 29 CFR 1926.59) requires training for employees who might be exposed to a DOT hazardous material or a biological hazard while performing three types of work:

  • conducting cleanups at a government-recognized waste site;
  • working at a RCRA-permitted hazardous waste treatment, storage and disposal facility (TSDF); or
  • performing emergency response to a potential or actual release.

OSHA specifies that workers in the first two categories have an 8-hour annual refresher, but the specific number of training hours is notspecified for emergency responders. Contrary to what you may have heard, OSHA does not have a course approval system, however, the Institute courses cover all of the elements required by 29 CFR 1910.120 and 1926.59.

In addition, the Institute is one of the programs participating in the Midwest Consortium for Hazardous Waste Worker Training, funded by the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS, grant #ES06184), so we can offer you high quality HAZWOPER training at an attractive cost. The Consortium course materials are consistent best-sellers at the NIEHS website.

OSHA requires (29 CFR 1910.120(q) and 1926.59(q)) that employees performing chemical emergency response must receive training commensurate with their duties. First Responder Operations level employees are an important part of any emergency response team, because they can perform a multitude of duties. Although they are forbidden by the rule to approach the release area for the purpose of containment or control, they are allowed to carry out of defensive operations to protect equipment or people at the scene. They can also serve in a number of roles in the support zone of the incident.

OSHA requires that First Responder Operations employees receive a minimum of eight hours of training. However, our experience is that in an open registration course we must require 12 hours of participation because we need to cover all of the possible classes of hazardous materials that might be present at a release site. We can provide a shorter customized course at sites where there is a well-characterized set of hazards that we can use to structure the presentation.

Course Features

  • OSHA HAZWOPER requirements for emergency responders.

  • Continuing Education: 40 IN WWO General Hours, 4.0 CEUs

OSHA requires that incident commanders receive a minimum of 16 hours of training beyond the First Responder Operations level course. However, we do not offer a minimal 24-hour incident commander course because in our judgment it is important for all incident commanders to receive the Hazardous Materials Technician training: you should not be directing the activities of responders unless you know the options available to them and the limitations placed on them by the personal protective equipment that they use.

There is no training beyond the 24-hour technician training for HazMat Specialists, but since OSHA defines them as a having a liaison function, we feel that it is important that they be trained in the same topics as the person in charge. Thus, our HAZWOPER Professional course is a 40-hour course rather than a shorter course allowed by the law.

Note: If you have already had a 24-hour or longer HazMat Technician class you may wish to complete your training by enrolling in our Incident Commander Completion Course.

Course Features

  • OSHA HAZWOPER requirements for emergency responders.
  • Chemical and biological hazard classification.
  • Classroom and hand-on experience in:
    • Personal protective equipment selection at a response scene.
    • Techniques for monitoring for hazardous substances.
    • Containment and control response options.
    • Equipment, site, and personnel decontamination.
    • Sizing up a response scene
    • Site control
    • Selecting and implementing safe and appropriate response actions.
    • Response termination.
    • Response review.
    • Computer resources for emergency planning and response.

Participants Receive:

  • Institute course manual.
  • Classroom training.
  • NIOSH Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards.
  • Emergency Response Guide.

Certification Information:

OSHA (29 CFR 1910.120(q) and 1926.59(q)) has two levels of training beyond the HazMat Technician level, namely, the HazMat Specialist and the Incident Commander level. Our Emergency Response technician course combines both of these specialties and provides trainees with the full knowledge of the duties and actions which can be taken by Incident Commanders and HazMat Specialists. Incident Commanders are in overall charge of the incident and HazMat Specialists serve as the lead responder in charge of the entry and back up teams. Their roles are described more fully in the section on Emergency Response Team Organization.

OSHA specifies that workers in the first two categories have an 8-hour annual refresher, but the specific number of training hours is notspecified for emergency responders. Contrary to what you may have heard, OSHA does not have a course approval system, however, the Institute courses cover all of the elements required by 29 CFR 1910.120 and 1926.59.

In addition, the Institute is one of the programs participating in the Midwest Consortium for Hazardous Waste Worker Training, funded by the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS, grant #ES06184), so we can offer you high quality HAZWOPER training at an attractive cost. The Consortium course materials are consistent best-sellers at the NIEHS website.

  • Continuing Education: 1.4 CEUs

Certification Information:

To remain licensed/certified to perform lead-based paint (LBP)abatement, inspection, or risk assessment in target housing, you must complete an approved refresher course in each specialty. Lead Risk Assessors are NOT required to take both the inspector and risk assessor refreshers. If a risk assessor chooses not to take the inspector refresher, they will still be allowed to conduct an inspection. The application fee will be paid just for the Risk Assessor and they will be listed only on the IN list of Risk Assessors. Anyone wishing to be on both lists must take both classes.

The Institute courses are accepted in Indiana and Illinois (all except the worker class). In addition, the Institute courses are approved by the EPA which is all that is required for the states of Florida, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, New York, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Wyoming. (Click here for more accreditation information)

Persons completing the course and attaining at least 70% on the course examination will be issued a certificate for completing the licensing/certification process. Recertification does not usually require re-taking the third party examination.

It is important to complete your refresher training in a timely fashion and to pay close attention to state-by-state variations:

Illinois: Renew your license annually and take your refresher every 3 years.
Indiana: Renew your training and your license every 3 years. Indiana gives up to 12 months variance on the training but only six months on the license.
EPA-only states: Renew your training every 3 years. (No license is required.)

"Clearance Examination" is a procedure for ensuring that a jobsite is left in a lead-safe condition. U.S. EPA requires successful clearance after all lead abatement projects in target housing and child-occupied facilities. U.S. HUD requires it in federally-owned/federally-financed lead abatements and interim control projects [the HUD equivalent of an EPA RRP renovation project] in target housing only

Paint in most residences ("target housing") and child-occupied facilities built before 1978 are presumed by U.S. EPA and U.S. HUD to contain lead-based paint (LBP). When projects disturbing LBP are performed in federally-assisted or federally-owned target housing, HUD requires that a clearance examination be conducted before payment of the contractor and removal of protections. In abatements (permanent removal of LBP hazards) such clearance examinations can only be performed by licensed inspectors or risk assessors . For HUD interim control projects, a state-licensed clearance examiner (EPA sampling technician) may perform the work.

Course Features

  • Hazards of lead and LBP.
  • OSHA, HUD, and EPA Requirements for LBP work in target housing and child-occupied facilities.
  • Required course examination.

Participants Receive

  • U.S. EPA course manual.
  • U.S. EPA Lead Sampling Technician Field Guide.

    • Sample collection
  • Preparing a clearance report.

Renovator Refresher ONLINE Training from ProTech
*You must hold an unexpired Renovator Certificate to enroll.

Certification Information:

HUD requires that persons performing clearance examinations after interim controls must possess valid state certification but does not specify which state. Indiana certifies clearance examiners but does not require the use of clearance examiners. The certification fee is $150 for a three year license. Refresher training is required every three years.
