Changes in the field of environmental technology necessitate the periodic updating of information provided in the Defining Environmental Technology report. The advent of new technologies, the increase in national and regional regulatory compliance requirements, and the changing demands of industry call for frequent realignment and information exchange among education, business, and government. New environmental technology career categories are emerging, and skills sets traditionally associated with environmental technology are cutting across industries and across individual jobs within those industries.The primary purpose of this report is to enhance counselor, teacher, and student awareness of environmental careers at the technician level. Ultimately, the report should contribute to addressing the environmental workforce needs of business, industry, and government by providing educators with information needed to develop relevant curriculum to prepare students for environmental technology careers. One of the most widely used tools in the report is the "Defining Environmental Technology" careers chart, which provides a snapshot of the occupational areas and jobs within those areas:* Air Quality* Emergency Preparedness and Response* Energy Technologies and Services* Environmental Information Management Systems* Environmental Laboratory Services* Environmental Site Management* Natural Resources Management* Safety and Health* Solid and Hazardous Waste Management* Wastewater Management* Water Supply and Quality* SustainabilityUsers must download this resource for viewing, this requires a free log-in.
