This course is designed for workers who need the OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER certification and prefer the flexibility and convenience of a 32 hour online course, coupled with 8 hours of hands-on equipment instruction and practice in a classroom. Students complete the online portion first through our state-of-the-art Online Training System (OTS), and then may attend the 8 hour classroom portion of the training.
If you will be getting employer-provided hands-on training with the specific equipment you will use, you may want to opt to take our OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER Training Onlinecourse which is provided 100% online, and includes equipment instruction by video instead of hands-on practice.
If you would prefer to get the 8-hour hands-on training through your employer or another training provider, you may want to take our OSHA 32 Hour HAZWOPER Online course to combine with your 8 hours of hands-on training. In some cases, when students have taken our 32 hour online course and another training provider will not issue a 40 Hour HAZWOPER certification, we may be able to do so if sufficient proof is provided of taking the hands-on portion. See our 40 Hour HAZWOPER options.
To request hands-on classroom training be added in your area, please contact us. Through affiliate partnerships with other training providers, we work to provide locations across the United States for the hands-on training. To ensure the highest quality training, we are very selective in choosing our affiliates.
