Who Should Take This Course?
Hazardous Materials Technicians are emergency responders who are trained to approach the point of a hazardous material spill or release, while using personal protective equipment (PPE), in order to stop or control the hazardous substance. HAZMAT Technicians perform advance control, containment, and confinement operations and use decontamination procedures.
Our blended HAZMAT Technician Level III Responder course (8 hrs online plus 8 hrs in classroom) is designed to help Hazardous Materials Technicians meet the 24 hour training requirement per OSHA regulation 29 CFR 1910.120(q). Per OSHA, annual refresher training is required with sufficient content and duration to maintain competencies. This version of the course is for workers with refreshed, adequate, verifiable FRO training completed within the last year.
Our 24 Hour HAZMAT Technician training courses are comprised of three 8 hour parts. This blended course is intended for workers with refreshed, adequate, verifiable FRO training completed within the last year (Part 1). Part 2 is completed online, and Part 3 is completed in the classroom:
