Please note that remote-access classes are typically only half-days, so they take more ‘days’ to complete than the in-person versions of the same course (which are full, '8-hour' days).

The full list of dates for the upcoming classes is available here: www.kingcounty.gov/oem-training  We will let you know as soon as the rest of the registration sites are ready.

If any of the classes you want to attend are full, please add your name to the waitlist.  If we have enough interest in a topic, we may be able to persuade the trainers to add additional sessions.

 

2) Registration is open for KCOEM’s annual “Summer Hazards Seminar”.  This year’s Seminar will include:
