EH&S Classroom Training

Training classes for 2021 - at this time, we have opened a limited number of classes for registration. We are currently in the process of securing space for other classes that meet physical distancing requirements. Once we have secured space for our classes, we will open up registration through Learn@ISU. Please note, dates and times are subject to change in our 2021 schedule.
