ICF Environment Environmental Education

Environmental Education

ICF International delivers custom training materials, classes, and other forms of environmental education to keep environmental professionals, members of academia, individuals in community leadership roles, and the public up-to-date on regulatory compliance issues.



At ICF, we offer environmental science, planning, and regulatory knowledge, as well as skill in effective education practices. These multidisciplinary capabilities enable us to find the correct balance of expertise for each client and to assign the most appropriate instructors for any learning group or environmental topic.

As a global company, ICF has the resources to assign the most appropriate subject matter instructor for any client or environmental topic. We offer experts in topics ranging from National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) regulations to European Union Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) requirements, and community relations. All courses can be customized to an organization’s or community’s education program needs.

ICF delivers environmental education classes in a variety of formats, including:

  • Webinars
  • College and academic courses
  • Public outreach classes
  • Distance learning
  • One-on-one and small group training

ICF’s environmental education resources also include texts, web materials, and books written or edited by ICF’s recognized environmental compliance experts. These comprehensive resources contain auxiliary material useful beyond the duration of the class.
