Environmental Training


The Oklahoma Environmental Training Center offers a broad range of affordable environmental, safety, water and waste-water certificate classes. All levels of operator certification training are provided.


  • With the addition of so many online and Zoom classes in recent months, now more than ever, it is critical that our records indicate the most current data on our students.  Please ensure that our records reflect the correct name, mailing address, email address, phone number, license number, and social security number for each student/operator.  It is important that this information match the records that DEQ has on file, as well.  Each of these factors affects our ability to communicate, send class materials by post, email crucial hyperlinks, and certify class results with DEQ for student certifications. Inconsistent or inaccurate information may delay the receipt of important materials and/or a student’s license.  If you’d like to confirm the information we have on file, please contact our office. 
  • Rose State reserves the right to change its schedule as necessary for the safety and security of our students, clients, faculty, staff, and community.  Periodically low enrollment, inclement weather, the Covid 19 pandemic, and/or other unforeseen events will necessitate the changing or adaptation of our schedule.  Updates will be posted here; and/or information may be acquired from the Oklahoma Environmental Training Center staff:
