Environmental Technology

Program Overview

The Allan Hancock College environmental technology program was developed in conjunction with the California Community Colleges to protect the natural resources of California through the proper management, use, and disposal of environmentally sensitive materials. Our goal is to provide the knowledge and skills necessary to create successful environmental technicians. We are training students to make pollution prevention a reality.

The field of Environmental Technology involves the management, conservation and protection of the natural environment and resources through regulatory compliance while promoting sustainability. Environmental Technology careers apply principles of math, science, technology, engineering, communications, economics, and law to ensure product, environment, and worker health and safety.

The program is designed around the mandatory training and education requirements from the Office of Homeland Security:

Our curriculum offers courses certified by the California Specialized Training Institute. Hands-on, relevant skill based training is built into the program, allowing you to enter into a career in a wide variety of occupations related to environmental health and safety after graduation inclusive of: air quality, waste/hazardous waste management, occupational safety and health, laboratory services, natural resource management, site management, and water and wastewater, each requiring employees with environmental technology skill sets. The focus is on basic principles and techniques used to identify, evaluate, and manage or mitigate hazards in the workplace.
