This state-of-the-art course covers, in great detail, the regulatory and training requirements of the Hazardous Waste Operation and Emergency Response (29 CFR 1910.120) standard. OSHA states that a measure of the competence of an instructor is the successful completion of a train-the-trainer program with training and experience specific to the topics they will teach. Not only does the course review the various elements of the HAZWOPER standard, but there are also demonstrations as well as intensive hands-on practical simulations to meet the experiential requirements of the regulation. Students that complete this course will obtain the knowledge, experience, and abilities necessary to conduct impactful and cost-saving HAZMAT and HAZWOPER training for their employees or future clients.
NASP offers the HAZWOPER Train-the-Trainer course in a classroom setting (instructor-led), and virtually on our Learning Management System. Click the buttons below to check our course calendar and schedule your training today!
