EPA-HWWT Training Summary 1999-2004

The Center for Occupational and Environmental Health compiled these tables breaking down the programs for Hazardous Waste Workers Training (HWWT) offered from the years 1999-2004 by type of class, number of classes, number of people trained and contact hours. In addition to "open enrollment" courses, the Center tailored specific courses for New York State's Departments of Health, the Environmental Conservation, New York City's Department of Environmental Protection, and Minority Worker Training Programs. Between 1999 and 2004, the Center offered 106 classes, training 2,182 people in total.

Formally established in 1990 by CUNY's Board of Trustees, the Hunter College Center for Occupational and Environmental Health (COEH) was founded with the mission "to promote community and workplace health" across the New York metropolitan area. Working with community groups, unions, governmental agencies, private employers, and educational institutions, the Center educated hundreds of thousands over the course of its history.
