Date & Time

Last Held:
Day 1: October 31, 2017
Day 2 (field day): November 9, 2017

9:00am - 4:15pm (Check-in time: 8:30am)

Next offering TBD.


The Rutgers/NJAES Office of Continuing Education (OCPE) and the NJ Clean Communities Council are offering a two-day safety training course. The purpose of the course is to provide coordinators with the information they need to organize cleanups that adhere to safety guidelines and to learn how to effectively involve volunteers that may be unfamiliar with applicable safety procedures and regulations. Information on liability and insurance requirements as they relate to field work will also be covered.

All attendees must attend the classroom session of the program on October 31 (at the the Extension Conference Center in New Brunswick), and then attend the scheduled "hands-on" field training session (November 9 at the Raritan Yacht Club). The training course is open to coordinators who are Certified Clean Communities Coordinators and the course can be used for recertification credits.

Note: Completion of the Health and Safety course is mandatory for those wishing to participate in the 2018 statewide litter survey project.

Day One: October 31, 2017 will be held at the Extension Conference Center in New Brunswick.

Day Two: November 9, 2017 will be held at the Raritan Yacht Club.

Additional information is available at www.njclean.org.
