The University requires environmental compliance training for certain employees to insure that they are adequately informed about federal and state regulations the university is required to follow. Required training is determined by job duties.
EHS Courses and Enrollment
UT employees can request online courses through UTLearn. As the employee training management system, UTLearn is accessible only by active UT Austin employees (faculty, staff, or student employee). Nonemployee students needing to take EHS courses may request access to UTLearn through self-registration. Self-registration is currently limited to only students required to complete EHS training. These students and/or supervisors who manage student safety training should contact EHS_Training@austin.utexas.edu to request the URL for the self-registration process.
