Region 6 (R6) Laboratory Services and Applied Science Division provides a 2021 Computer-Generated Quality Assurance (QA) Training for Grantees and non-EPA R6 QA employees! The Regional QA program has transferred to online sessions to accommodate schedules during the current shelter-in-place order. The free online training discusses the EPA Quality Program. It details the requirements for conducting quality management activities for environmental data collection and environmental technology programs performed by or for the Agency. The training will take several days to complete and attendees will have a year (until January 31, 2023) to complete the training. Please review all the provided material before moving forward to take the quiz and obtaining your automated e-certificate. Note, R6 QA staff are also electronically notified once someone completes the training! Nonetheless, please obtain a screenshot of your certificate for your records. The revamped training is in lieu of the previously offered four-day classroom training, and thus will be considered as equivalent. You can access the training by clicking on the following link:
