Course detail: Hazardous Materials Operations Training

This 32-hour course will build upon Hazardous Materials Awareness Level training and enable participants to: identify the hazardous material(s) involved in an incident if possible; analyze an incident to determine the nature and extent of the problem; protect themselves, nearby persons, the environment, and property from the effects of a release; develop a defensive plan of action to address the problems presented by the incident; implement the planned response to control a release from a safe distance and keep it from spreading; and evaluate the progress of the actions taken to ensure that response objectives are safely met.

The course uses IFSTA Hazardous Materials for First Responders, Sixth Edition, as text and is furnished by the student.
