In addition, we provide input to the Certification of Environmental RiskAssessors (CRA) program in collaboration with the Certification Program Committee, predominantly by identifying potential course organizers
and basic as well as specialized courses for the CRA program.

It does not require a large time investment to perform the duties of the Education Committee, while it allows us to keep up to speed with training and educational demands and offers.
- Typically it takes between one or two hours to independently review all the training course proposals. This is followed by a one- or two-hour teleconference for the committee to discuss the proposals as a panel.
- Overall, the Education Committee takes a time commitment of approximately ten hours a year.
