Companies increasingly recognize that what is good for human health and the environment is also good for business and the bottom line.

Effective toxics use reduction (TUR) protects workers, communities, and the environment, while sharpening a company's competitive edge. TUR Planners are essential to this process. Click here to learn more about the role of the TUR Planner.

The Toxics Use Reduction Institute offers the TUR Planning course annually to train professionals responsible for assuring a company's TUR planning is done in good faith and yields new opportunities to create a more efficient and sustainable operation.

Course format: This course begins with attending a required group web meeting on Thursday, August 30 from 12:00 to 1:00 PM. For the next month, class participants will work on the 11 on-line training modules and discussions at their own pace. Participants who have not completed the on-line discussions, exercises and quizzes will not be admitted to the in-class sessions.

Four in-class sessions (September 27 and October 4, 11, and 25) follow. The course features TUR Planners sharing best practices, and a real world example that participants collaborate on (both in and out of class) to create a graded TUR Plan.

Already certified Limited Practice TUR Planners can earn 12 credits (one time only) for using the online portion of this course as a refresher. This option is not available for General Practice Planners.

NOTE: Course attendance is required in order to receive a certiļ¬cate of completion. If you have any questions about certification requirements, contact Walter Hope at MassDEP at (617) 292-5982.
