Hazardous Materials (HAZMAT) specialist training for individuals seeking certification as a HAZMAT Specialist for emergency response operations. OSHA 24 Hour HAZWOPER Courses — Know the difference. Did you know there are FIVE 24-Hour HAZWOPER courses required by the OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.120? Each of these courses is very different in both who they apply to and the topics that are covered during the training.

The HAZMAT Specialist training was developed for those professionals in fire, rescue, Emergency Medical Services (EMS), general industry and other first responders who may respond to and mitigate incidents involving hazardous materials. We are the only company today with an OSHA accepted online simulator. We also offer U.S. Based support. Download OSHA Interpretation Letter (Acceptance Letter)

HAZMAT Specialists are those persons who respond to releases or potential releases of hazardous materials for the purpose of controlling the release. They are more aggressive than first responders at the operations level in that they will approach the point of release to plug, patch, or otherwise stop the release of a hazardous materials substance. They are expected to use specialized chemical protective clothing and specialized control equipment. They are also specialists within certain designations to perform specialized operation to contain, confine, or mitigate hazardous substances releases.

In compliance with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120(q) regulations, (HAZWOPER emergency response regulations) this training is required for individuals who plan to work as emergency responders with a HAZMAT Specialist designation. 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 24 hours of study time in order to satisfy part of the 24 hour HAZMAT Specialist certification requirement.
Along the way there are self grading quizzes, interactive exercises, full length videos and a self grading final exam. The quizzes can be taken as many times as needed, and the final exam can be taken a maximum of 3 times. Once a person satisfactorily completes the course, an e-certificate is immediately sent to them via email. The original certificates (8×10 and wallet card size) arrive in the U.S. mail.
The HAZMAT Specialist training is 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 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. Generic hands-on training on PPE and equipment does not fully meet the OSHA regulations.
This specialized training utilizes a modular format where employers may analyze its current level of competency and choose course modules that will provide the skills needed by its hazardous materials team. Training includes offensive procedures for mitigation of hazardous materials spills, leaks, and exposures. Topics include chemistry, detection devices, advanced recognition and identification, pre-incident planning, incident management, scene evaluation and termination, terrorism, toxicology, medical surveillance, emergency care, PPE usage and limitations, and decontamination.
Plan States (approved by U.S. OSHA) must have standards at least as stringent as the Federal HAZWOPER training requirements. These Plan States may have additional training requirements.

At completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Explain the federal regulations governing the use, storage, and transport of hazardous materials in the United States
  • Describe health and safety issues by classes of chemicals and toxic effects on specific body systems
  • Discuss the importance of medical surveillance and proactive health and safety planning

  • Explain the factors related to the use of personal protective equipment (PPE), including chemical compatibility, the physiological and psychological stresses of wearing encapsulated clothing, and maintenance
  • Explain the types, levels, and process of decontamination, including step- by-step procedures and set-up of the area
