Barton Community College, in conjunction with the National Partnership for Environmental Technology Education (PETE), has been offering a 10-day Hazardous Waste Worker Training Program at military installations across the country. Most recently, the program was offered at Fort Riley.
The training is paid for by a grant from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS). The course is geared toward transitioning soldiers, retirees and family members at no cost.
