At the end of the day, one of their guys thanked us for helping to kill two birds with one stone, and we really helped their staff a lot. Confused, my guy asked what he meant.

"Well we just got SPCC training. That covers stormwater training for our permit, right? We don't need to train again, do we?"

We discuss factors that go into the SPCC training costs.

SPCC Training is an often overlooked aspect of many companies training programs. I've never figured out why, but many people brush it off as common sense. For some people, hiring an outside SPCC expert to conduct training is their best bet. Here we discuss what goes into the price or cost of SPCC Training, and what you can expect to pay for SPCC Training.

For some reason, our phones have been ringing off the hook with people looking for environmental training. What's going on? Is the EPA knocking down doors looking for proof of training? When it comes to SPCC Training, we get a bunch of questions on the topic. What does the training include? How long is it? What do you cover? And, the most common question, how much does SPCC training cost?
