Once Toxics Use Reduction Planners are certified, they are required to take continuing education courses to stay current on technical and managerial tools for reducing the use of toxics. For this reason, TURI presents Continuing Education Conferences in the Spring and Autumn of each year. These day-long conferences vary from event to event, presenting in-depth training on topics related to safer alternatives to toxic substances, pollution prevention, resource conservation, chemicals policy, and toxicology. Like all of our events, Continuing Education Conferences are open to anyone, as these trainings can be beneficial to government officials, company executives, community leaders, and university personnel. Visit the TURI Calendar for upcoming training events.
Toxics Use Reduction Planners can also receive Continuing Education Credit by attending outside events that are of educational value in the areas listed above. To receive credit, Planners must apply with MassDEP for pre-approval - go to the Mass DEP TUR Planner Certification page and go to the bottom section of the page for more information.
Presentation materials from past Continuing Education Conferences can be accessed from the Presentations section of this website.
