About MCET

Since 1982, the Maryland Center for Environmental Training (MCET) has established a reputation for excellence in environmental, safety and health training and compliance assistance through practical applications.  Employers and employees who partner with MCET integrate regulatory compliance into their site-specific training and day-to-day activities.  Combined with applications of best management practices geared to the actual performance of their duties, the participant’s learning experiences will focus on and relate to their working environment.


MCET celebrates 35 years developing and delivering Maryland's most attended water and wastewater customized courses and programs, and reliably delivering technical assistance for treatment facilities, superintendents, and operators.

Our training is provided throughout Maryland, funded in part by the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) and student tuition.  Check out our list of classes by clicking the Schedule link to see which courses are being held at a location near you.
