Hello, my name is Alan Spangler. I am the Solid Waste Program Coordinator/Instructor for the AETA. I am pleased to offer our 2022 Solid Waste Training Schedule. Inside this schedule, you will find many opportunities for operators, supervisors, and management personnel at solid waste facilities to gain access to the classes needed to obtain and/or maintain your solid waste license.

The AETA offers the Apprentice, Journeyman, Master, and 6-hour Update classes on our campus in Camden, at locations statewide, by Zoom, and by Internet delivery. The Environmental Officer classes and updates will be offered in Fayetteville, Maumelle, and Jonesboro. Also, the AETA offers courses by contract that can be taught at your facility.

Students attending by Zoom will receive real-time, Instructor lead training. All you need is an internet connection and a computer with a video camera and microphone. Please contact the AETA and we will be happy to work with you to meet the training needs of your facility.
