Worker Training Program
Each year, the Worker Training Program (WTP) holds technical webinars, meetings, and workshops. These events address scientific, administrative, and regulatory issues related to training workers who work with and clean up hazardous materials and who respond to emergencies involving hazardous substances, including viruses like SARS-CoV-2.
Evaluating the Benefits of the NIEHS Environmental Career Worker Training Program (ECWTP) Webinar Thursday, February 10, 2022 2:00 - 3:30 p.m. EST Event Registration: ZoomGov link
Purpose: The purpose of the Community of Practice webinars is to provide a forum for WTP grantees to share their evaluation methods and lessons learned, and provide feedback to NIEHS on moving evaluation forward for the program. This webinar will engage ECWTP grantees and stakeholders in discussing how they evaluate the benefits and impacts of ECWTP. Webinar participants will learn best practices and gain new ideas for future ECWTP evaluation.
Justice40 Stakeholder Engagement: This webinar will also provide an opportunity for stakeholder engagement for ECWTP, which has been named a pilot program for the White House’s Justice40 Initiative. We encourage registration for anyone participating or interested in ECWTP and job training for environmental justice communities.
Spanish language interpretation will be available during this webinar.
