40 hour HAZWOPER Training Course
Price Match Guarantee – we will match a competitors price for the same 40 hour HAZWOPER course even though the quality of the course may be vastly different. The price match is only valid for companies who offer OSHA compliant HAZWOPER training. You may find less expensive online HAZWOPER courses but they cannot fulfill the OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER hands-on requirement without a simulator or other means. We also offer U.S. Based support 24/7
This course features the only OSHA accepted HAZWOPER training component – HAZWOPER Hands-on Simulator®. There is a lot of misinformation about our industry and required training on the internet today. Our advice is to select a training provider who has proven themselves over the years. A well respected training provider should have some communication with OSHA about their courses. Read about our HAZWOPER Hands-on Simulator®. If you value OSHA compliance and effective safety training, this is the course for you.
Our 40 Hour HAZWOPER course gives you in-depth regulatory information and topics in a modular format with professional voiceovers, custom high resolution graphics, and intuitive navigation. In house degreed and licensed subject matter experts developed the course along with information architects. Many topics originate from the OSHA HAZWOPER regulatory requirements found in 29 CFR 1910.120(e). The course presents these topics in an interactive, enjoyable, and entertaining fashion. You will have a feeling of accomplishment as you progress through the HAZWOPER course. Quizzes are located at the end of each module and you do not have to pass the quizzes in order to continue. However, it is recommended that you pass the quizzes (70% or higher) as you will face similar questions in the final exam. Both quizzes and the final exam are self-grading so you immediately know your results.
You may login and logout on your own schedule. Our system keeps track of your session and each time you return, the course will pick up where it left off both in content and study time. A study timer is visible to you indicating how much time you have accrued in the course. When you have completed the HAZWOPER modules and have the minimum required study time, you can take the final exam. You must pass the final exam (70%) or higher to receive your certificate. An email with your certificate is sent to you or a designee indicating completion of the course. The original certificates (8×10 and PVC wallet card) will be mailed to you. Your certificate will be signed by a registered professional health and safety professional as required by OSHA. Support is available to you 24/7 during the course. You have 1 year from the time of registration to complete the course. So, you will have access to the HAZWOPER 40 course for a full year.
In compliance with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120 regulations, this 40 hour HAZWOPER training is required for individuals who plan to work in an area that is defined as a HAZWOPER Work Site. Upon successful completion of the course, students will receive a certificate of completion accepted by regulatory agencies. Students will be allowed to proceed at their own pace in this interactive program. Students must complete a minimum of 40 hours of study time in order to satisfy part of the 40 hour HAZWOPER certification requirement.
This course is designed to be taken online. As with any training (classroom or online) the employer is required by regulations to train the employee(s) on performance based standards for any applicable equipment. This is a 40 hour HAZWOPER site-specific requirement and typically cannot be achieved in a regular public seminar or open enrollment class where training on a respirator(s) or PPE in general does not meet the site-specific regulatory requirement.
Who needs 40 hour HAZWOPER training? General site workers (such as equipment operators, general laborers, and supervisory personnel) engaged in hazardous substance clean up and removal of other activities which expose or potentially expose workers to hazardous substances and health hazards shall receive a minimum of 40 hours of instruction off the site, and a minimum of 3 days actual field experience under the direct supervision of a trained, experienced supervisor.
Plan States (approved by U.S. OSHA) must have standards at least as stringent as the Federal 40 hour HAZWOPER training requirements. These Plan States may have additional training requirements.
