What is the Maine Regulatory Training and Ethics Center?
Community, training, and engagement in an expanding regulatory climate.
Maine Regulatory Training and Ethics Center (MeRTEC)
At MeRTEC, our primary focus is to:
An Expanded Regulatory Climate
The University of Southern Maine (USM) developed the Maine Regulatory Training and Ethics Center (MeRTEC) in direct response to concerns expressed by our community partners that the expanded regulatory climate in which they are operating, along with the risks associated with noncompliance, were impeding innovation and economic growth.
Education and Training
As part of Maine’s public university system, USM is uniquely qualified make a meaningful contribution to education and training.
The center provides technical assistance, training, internships, and a minor in regulatory compliance, and a certificate in regulatory ethics.
In collaboration with the University of Maine School of Law, and with support from UNUM, WEX, Inc. and the Portland Regional Chamber of Commerce, MeRTEC successfully launched its new Regulatory Compliance Certificate Program for non-lawyer compliance personnel in 2017.
