  • Develop the educational program and recruit the presenter(s)
  • Review educational proposals for the event
  • Work with staff to develop the marketing message

If there is a particular topic that you would like to be involved with putting the education together for please let us know so we can reach out to you the next time that topic comes up for a MSECA event.

We are currently evaluating the educational programs for 2017, so now is the perfect time to get involved to help us plan our events!

MSECA needs volunteers to review educational modules that we are putting together for our upcoming MSECA Fundamentals of Environmental Consulting (MCERT Program).

  • Review one or more 30 min – 60 min video.
  • Provide feedback on the content of the video from the perspective of a new consultant.
  • Provide feedback on what information would have helped you as a new consultant.
Topics for MCERT Modules will include:
  • Intro to Environmental Consulting
  • Health & Safety
  • Communication Skills
  • Why We Do What We Do
  • Risk Assessment
  • Hydrogeology
  • Soil Characterization
  • Vapor Intrusion

  • Contaminant Chemistry
  • Remediation / Institutional Controls
  • Closure / Lines of Evidence

Education Presenter:

Do you have an educational topic from which MSECA members would benefit? Share your expertise by presenting at an upcoming MSECA event.

Most MSECA presentations are between 45 to 60 minutes but we would be happy to accept proposals for any length presentation.  Education presenters can be either at in-person meetings (half-day or full-day) or via our online webinar series.


  • Work with the meeting committee to develop your content
  • Prepare a presentation on the material you intend to present
  • Provide the meeting committee with any presentation needs or restrictions for your proposal.
