Environmental Health and Sciences (EHS) Training

As a valued member of the UConn community, your safety is important to us. We take our job of training you in safety practices seriously. It is also your responsibility to learn how to keep yourself, those around you, and the educational environment safe. Depending on which courses you'll be taking, you may need to complete one, two, all three, or none of the EHS training modules in HuskyCT before you begin your studies. If you are enrolled in one or more of the Pre-College Summer courses listed in a module's description, you must pass that module before you begin the course. It is important that you earn 100% because this information will help you confidently and safely navigate your pre-college academic journey.
