Members Say It Best!
“FET is an excellent way to interact with people in the environmental field. Also, the annual conferences are very good.”
“The educational opportunities and networking are invaluable, and something that I share with my staff, encouraging them to attend FET events. My association with FET is one of many reasons I’m still in this field - it is a wonderful resource.”
"The value of membership goes beyond just learning the regulations and compliance issues. The networking is wonderful. Every consultant or service that my company hires has been through contacts
at FET whenever possible."
“There are excellent people affiliated with FET. It is a nice mix of newer and long time members. The sharing of knowledge amongst members to enhance knowledge of other members in this field is the best; FET membership is a real value.”
“I sat for the CHMM exam in Madison. . . I must say this was a difficult exam, however if you paid attention in the FET 3-day prep course, if you focus on the intent of the regulations and can memorize many of the acronyms used in waste regulations and agencies, you should do just fine. I'm pleased to announce I passed the exam!”
“FET helps provide a reality check on the tools we use when explaining rules or policy. The membership provides a very good resource to interact with practitioners in the environmental field, and know what their issues and concerns are. I see it as an important communications conduit for state information to be shared.”
Renee Lesjak Bashel
“Even as a veteran in this field, the education and networking focus of FET continue to be significant.”
“Seminar was excellent. Good inclusion of detail, state-specific items and technologies; subject matter is very useful.”
Troy Stucke, on RCRA Seminar
"The conferences continue to be relevant, and a great value. In just a few days, one can have the information presented in a condensed format, and be relevant to our state. It is very cost-effective and justifiable to an employer.”
The Regulators are available for questions - I learned a lot in a short period of time.
“Good changes for FET are the growing membership, and also providing more educational opportunities to meet changes by the DNR, EPA and OSHA.”
Mary Ellen Mortensen
“FET is a great value and provides many opportunities to continue learning about the environmental field and to interact with peers and regulators. “
“I like the statewide emphasis and multi-disciplinary approach FET has, covering a wide variety of environmental topics and areas. The networking opportunities cannot be beat. FET has always been a great source of information for me on a broad array of environmental topics.”
“All of the sessions were well done. It is always difficult to make this material interesting when you have gone through this over and over. Everyone did a great job and I enjoyed the interactive training.”
Seminar attendee at HazWoper Refresher course
“The organization is very focused on ensuring that members are well-trained and up-to-date on environmental rules and regulations. There are a lot of training opportunities – especially for younger workers in this field.”
“Over the years I have always thought first of FET for my continuing education needs. FET unfailingly provides outstanding quality and value in the seminars that they offer.”
“Participating in FET helps me stay current on topics, issues and advances in the environmental field. I always look forward to attending the Annual Conference. FET is a wonderful organization for anyone in the environmental and health & safety field.”
“FET puts on the best conferences and seminars in the environmental field. Our staff attends these each year.”
“Chapters are a great benefit of FET -- to have a good pool of people to stay connected to and interact with other peers who are helpful in the sharing of ideas.”
"Did you leave the conference with something valuable?" Yes, updated regulatory knowledge and confirmation of some aspects of rules that we are currently complying with in our facilities.
Environment 2013 Conference Attendee
Good to hear other perspectives; great subject experts; covered lots of subjects I'm currently involved in my job.
Air Quality PDC Attendee October 2013
“FET seminars, courses and the annual conference are timely and current. I like that most are one-day, convenient and cost effective. When I travel to Pennsylvania and Minnesota, my colleagues there are amazed at how many FET events I attend ~ they do not have an equivalent of FET in their states.”
- Earlier this year, FET received information from a new college grad who had been encouraged to join FET by someone at Johnson Controls, as FET is seen as a great networking and educational association.
“I enjoy interacting with other professionals in the industry and learning from their experiences and receiving feedback on relevant issues we face in our disciplines.”
