SET is an environmental workforce development and job training program funded by the Environmental Protection Agency. The purpose of the SET program is to help unemployed and under-employed residents in Charlotte, NC gain skills and qualifications to secure employment in the environmental workforce. Over the course of 6-weeks, participants are exposed to instructional learning, hands-on activities, and simulated demonstrations to obtain a variety of professional credentials relevant to the environmental field. After completing the program and passing a physical exam, graduates engage with environmental staffing agencies and local employers for job placement opportunities.
