Online Professional Development Training

Continuing education is paramount in the rapidly developing environmental field. Professionals need to keep up with new knowledge, technology, regulations and standards, and approaches to best practices. Many employers or professional certification bodies require continuing education credits or points.

INASEP’s online professional development training courses may qualify for continuing education credits with your professional certification body. Once all modules of a course have been completed and the quizzes successfully passed with a minimum of 80% correct, a Certificate of Completion will be provided in the Member’s name, detailing the number of training hours and the topic. 

While our website is undergoing renovations, some courses are now available. Note that our courses are continually being developed, and more will be added soon. Thank you!
