The 24 hour course consists of three days of lectures, discussions, classroom demonstrations, and small group exercises. Emphasis will be placed on responding in a defensive manner without actually trying to stop the release.
Topics include: relevant state and federal regulations, health hazard recognition, hazard and risk assessment, respiratory protection, selection and use of personal protective equipment, decontamination, control and containment of spills, emergency response plans, termination procedures, and the incident command system.
This course offers 24 Continuing Education Hours.
COST: $480 for 40-hour completion. This is a separate course fee from the 24-hour training and includes all materials and equipment.
The total combined cost for the initial 24-hour and the 40-hour completion is $950.
This 16 hour in-person course of lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on experience builds upon the 24 hour course (a prerequisite for participating in this completion course). The Technician Level course is designed to provide training required by OSHA 1910.120 to respond to releases with the purpose of stopping the release.
Topics include: implementation of emergency response plans, classification and identification of unknowns, field survey instruments, response tactics, hazardous materials technology, decontamination of personnel and equipment.
This course offers 16 Continuing Education Hours. 40 total hours when both the required courses are completed. The 24-hour course is a pre-requisite.
NOTE: All participants in the 40-hour course are required to have a physician complete a medical evaluation and clearance form prior to the course.
