National Enforcement Training Institute (NETI) eLearning Center

Announcement about Courses on the NETI eLearning Center
NETI recently learned that many of our inspector training courses (primarily the Health and Safety courses, but others as well) were blocked and cannot be viewed. This is due to a recent upgrade to Adobe Connect that included improved security protocols. NETI has been diligently working with EPA’s Office of Environmental Information and Adobe to resolve this issue. We now have a solution; however, it may take up to one more week before the correction is implemented. We will update our webpage and let you know as soon as these courses are again available to our users. We thank you for your patience with us as we resolve this issue. And we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. Questions may be directed to

      This course will enable users with little or no economic background to use the BEN enforcement economic model in calculating the economic benefit portion of the penalty in enforcement cases. The course consists of three modules: Module 1 introduces the user to the basic concept of economic benefits it fits into EPA’s penalty approach; Module 2 is an introduction to the financial theory and concepts necessary to use the BEN enforcement economic model: and Module 3 is an introduction in how to use the BEN enforcement economic model. (Please note: that these modules are not interactive, but students can run the BEN model at the same time as the course if they want to work through the in-class exercise in Module 3.)

      This course, offered by Project ENCRIPT of the Law Enforcement Management Institute of Texas (LEMIT) will identify the ways in which unethical behaviors, by white collar criminals, might affect the course of an inspection or an investigation.
