Workshops, Webinars and Online Training Overview

Select Workshops, Webinars or Online Training under the 'Education' tab (above) to view available opportunities. Log into your TAB account to register for a workshop, webinar or online course.


TAB Brownfields workshops, webinars and online training are FREE and designed to help you:

  • gain a better understanding of what a Brownfield is,
  • learn how Brownfield revitalization can be a part of your community’s economic development strategy,
  • and hear from local, state and national leaders on resources available to your community.


These events are attended by peers from other locations, and play a key role in sharing information and cultivating relationships among stakeholders in communities. Workshops, webinars and online courses are typically conducted by TAB, state and federal employees and other associates who can give site-specific follow-on assistance. These events have been shown to promote interest and activity in brownfields redevelopment. Learn about available events and courses by selecting Workshops, Webinars or Online Training under Education. Log into your TAB account to register for an event or online course.

Online Tools Overview

The Brownfield Inventory Tool (BIT) is a FREE, online, comprehensive site inventory and brownfields program management tool. BIT was designed especially for users working under an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) cooperative agreement, but any entity working on establishing a site inventory database will find BIT useful in consolidating environmental and administrative information from sites in multiple programs.


Learn about BIT by selecting BIT under Resources. Use BIT by logging into your TAB account and selecting BIT under Online Tools.


TAB EZ is a FREE online tool intended to streamline and simplify the grant writing process when applying for EPA brownfields assessment and cleanup grants. TAB EZ is very user friendly,  offers helpful hints for addressing proposal requirements, and links to additional resources.
