Job Placement Assistance
Due to the fact we provide training for many environmental, and occupational health and safety oriented companies, IEE maintains strong ties with business and industrial communities of northern New England. These companies often use IEE to post openings in their organizations, because they know first-hand the high quality of training the Institute provides.
Job placement assistance is available only to students who are unemployed and pay for their own training courses. We will let these student know of job openings that we are aware of in their field. While every effort is made to assist qualified students with their job search, we cannot guarantee initial employment, rates of pay, or length of employment.
Students should be aware of the following limitations and standards in the environmental fields:
- Most states require that participants be at least 18 years of age in order to work or be licensed in the environmental fields.
- Participants who wish to attend abatement/worker courses should have at a minimum, grade seven reading and mathematics equivalency.
- OSHA requires that employees pass an occupational medical examination (conducted by a licensed physician) to work in the environmental fields. The medical exams may include (depending on the field) a chest x-ray, pulmonary function test, medical and work history, blood lead monitoring, and a general physical examination.
- Workers should be prepared to wear a respirator and disposable protective clothing. Environmental abatement activities are labor intensive and participants might work in a construction environment. Consultants might find that work can be strenuous, although typically not as labor intensive as that for abatement workers. Generally, being able to climb a ladder and lifting up to 50 pounds is necessary to work in the field.
STATE LICENSING INFORMATION
Course participants may be eligible to apply for various state licensing or certification depending on applicable training obtained, college education, and/or field experience. Massachusetts and New Hampshire specify requirements for all persons who work on asbestos and lead paint/deleading projects
IEE's knowledgeable staff can assist you to navigate through the many asbestos disciplines and the roles and responsibilities of each. Please note that it is always the student's responsibility to contact the applicable state agency directly to verify that they meet state specific requirements for certification/licensing.

Feel free to bring in food and warm it up for lunch. For students who prefer to purchase their lunch, there is a sandwich shop located next store to our facility.
MAXIMUM NUMBER OF STUDENTS IN A CLASS OR HANDS-ON SESSION
- Maximum lecture classes will not exceed 40 students.

Students who have special needs which may require remedial assistance during training should notify the Institute when registering for the course.
