GBK will continue to provide instructor-led and online Environmental Officer training services for the US Army IMCOM-Europe region for FY2013.

The next scheduled event is at Ansbach - Katterbach Kaserne in Germany. The training program focuses on compliance with applicable US and Host-Nation environmental regulation and policy, but with a heavy emphasis on hazardous materials and waste management, spill response, pollution prevention and EMS.

The online training is supported by full LMS function to assist the client with recordkeeping and reporting tasks.

GBK Continues Compliance Training Program

Wednesday, 19 January 2011 15:46

Beginning December 2010, GBK master trainers have been performing Environmental Compliance Workshops for the US Coast Guard around the country. During a period of reorganization during 2010, Coast Guard stations were restricted in the amount of compliance training available to them, but this is now being addressed. At least 14 workshops around the country are bringing Coast Guard personnel up to speed on all the necessary EPA, OSHA, DOT regulations as well as applicable Executive Orders and CG policy and technical manuals. Workshops have already been completed in Alaska (in Ketchikan and on Kodiak Island), Seattle (WA) and Norfollk (VA). Next up, USCG Stations at Charleston, Alameda and Honolulu.

GBK Partners with noodleStream.com

Wednesday, 18 February 2009 14:47

This week GBK entered into a 3-year agreement to provide subject matter expertise and support services to noodleStream.com, a leader in providing online occupational, safety and health training to the private sector. "GBK's pedigree in environmental compliance and response ensures that our online curricula in the subject will out class anything else on the market," says Laura Beldon, noodleStream's Director of Channel Sales. "We have an extensive project history in eLearning development ourselves, however, most of it is focused on deploying highly customized solutions for large, often public institutions like the Department of Defense. Partnering with noodleStream will carry our eLearning content to much more broadly distributed market." says GBK's Managing Partner, Trey Greene.

Under the agreement, GBK will provide noodleStream with eLearning content in the areas of chemical, biological, radiological/nuclear, and explosive (CBRNE) response and hazardous materials compliance, as well as assist in the development of a new series in the area of eco-sustainability.
