About TNEC

TNEC is one of 20 programs administered by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) Worker Education Program. TNEC is located in an academic environment that offers a wealth of worker health and safety knowledge. It is based in the College of Health Sciences at UMass Lowell.

TNEC's courses meet or exceed the OSHA 1910.120 standard for protecting hazardous waste workers and employees who respond to hazardous material emergencies in their workplaces. Upon completion of each course, students receive a certificate and a wallet card that document their training. Courses are delivered at TNEC’s Training Center at UMass Lowell or at a company's site anywhere in New England.

In addition to the open enrollment curricula, TNEC is able to custom design trainings to address the needs of hazardous materials specific to a client’s work site.

All TNEC courses are held from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., unless otherwise noted. On-site training is also available.
