2018 APU & NAEP Webinar Series

Join us for our seventh exciting year of interactive webcasts with our environmental industry experts brought to you by American Public University and the National Association of Environmental Professionals (NAEP)! National Association of Environmental Professionals (NAEP) and American Public University (APU) have shared efforts through an educational alliance with the goal to help prepare environmental professionals to advance in their field through career-relevant education. With this goal in mind, NAEP and American Public University leaders are collaborating on a seventh year of webcast series focused on career preparation and professional development for environmental professionals.

The 2018 webinar series will showcase environmental projects that incorporate federal environmental legislation in real world applications. Presenting case studies for discussion, the webinar series targets an audience of early career professionals, including students, but mid- to late- career professionals should also find the topics interesting and perhaps gain new insights from current case studies addressing the Clean Water Act, the Clean Air Act, and the Endangered Species Act. Webinars are offered free of charge for NAEP members and APU students, faculty, and staff. Please add these to your schedule and plan to join us!
