Welcome to the official site of the University of North Dakota Environmental Training Institute (ETI).
The Environmental Training Institute (ETI) develops and delivers training programs for those involved in hazard detection and environmental control. Our specialties include a wide range of health and safety training topics.
The Environmental Training Institute (ETI) was organized within the UND Occupational Safety & Environmental Health Office in 1988 with the mission of developing and presenting high-quality training programs for those dealing with issues in occupational safety and environmental health.
In 1999, ETI became an independent department under UND Auxiliary Services serving North Dakota, Minnesota, Montana, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming. ETI has grown steadily over the years, taking a leadership role in the region served, and currently offers more than 55 health and safety training courses at our training center in Grand Forks and at locations throughout the Midwest. Our class offerings expanded in September 2000 in part due to funding through an OSHA Susan Harwood Training Grant which allowed ETI to develop additional courses and expand its outreach.
Annually, ETI serves over 2500 clients, who include contractors, painters, electricians, and plumbers; transport services; utilities; hospitals and nursing homes; laboratories; sanitation and environmental services; agricultural businesses; manufacturers; waste disposal services; public schools; and city, county, tribal, state, and federal governments.
Courses are currently provided in the following areas:
- Hazardous materials
- Lead-based paint
- Healthcare safety
- Construction safety
- Indoor air quality and mold
- OSHA compliance and worker protection
- Clandestine lab clean-up
- Integrated pest management & healthy homes
We also develop customized training courses for companies seeking educational options developed specifically for their needs. Contact us to discuss your specific needs!
