Future Environment Designs wishes all of you a Merry Holidays and a Happy New Year for 2020!

Future Environment Designs (#FEDTC) wishes you and your family a Merry Holidays and a Happy New Year.  As we say goodbye to 2019 and 2010 decade, it is a good time to reflect on all we accomplished in the last decade, including:

2019 Rockefeller Center
As we say hello to 2020 and we look forward to the coming decade, the time is coming to hand over the reins of Future Environment Designs to a younger generation.  We expect this process to take most of the decade to ensure our clients are still provided the level of information and service they have come to expect from Future Environment Designs.  We expect more digitizing and blending of the courses moving into the future, including:

  • All exams being moved online.
  • Shopping cart added to the website.
  • Revision of the website making it more mobile-friendly. 
  • New online courses including Bloodborne Pathogens, Respirator Administrator, PCB Awareness, etc.
We are looking forward to seeing all of you in 2020 and during the upcoming decade.  We are also excited about the changes and opportunities coming our way.  Again, we wish you & your family a Merry Holidays and a Happy New Year!!!
