HAZARDOUS MATERIALS RESPONSE COURSE (PART 2)
Emergency Training Division has developed this online Hazardous Materials (Hazmat) Awareness training program for personnel working for federal, state, and local government agencies. By completing this course, you will meet OSHA training requirements for Awareness Level employees. This may include police officers, firefighters, public works employees, transportation workers, emergency medical personnel, and others who may be the first on the scene of a hazardous materials emergency. It also includes hospital employees who may be responsible for treating contaminated patients, particularly during mass casualty events.
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) and state OSHA programs, a responder at the Awareness Level must have:
- An understanding of hazardous substances and the risks associated with them in an emergency
- An understanding of the potential outcomes associated with an emergency created when hazardous substances are present
- The ability to recognize the presence of hazardous substances in an emergency
- An understanding of the role of the first responder at the Awareness Level, including site security and control and use of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Emergency Response Guidebook
- The ability to realize the need for additional resources and to provide good information to the communication center
Emergency Training Division approved courses are broken down into three distinct sections*:
Part 1 – Preparatory online Training
Part 2 – Formal 30-Day Online Training
Part 3 – Skills Testing
PART 1 – PREPARATORY online Training: This section is designed to prepare you for the Formal 30-Day Online Training (Part 2). You will be required to read and study various topics/chapters and take practice quizzes over that material. Students must pass the Syllabus Tests in order to continue to Part 2. You will also begin the process of reviewing any skill work that may be required of you during Part 3: Skills Testing.
PART 2 – FORMAL 30-DAY ONLINE TRAINING: Once you’ve completed the Part 1: Preparatory section (Free online Training) and are ready for the next step, you will need to access to Part 2: Formal 30-Day Online Training Click on Hazardous Material Response Course (PART 2) This portion of the course must be completed within 30 days.
Part 2 Completion can be achieved by the participant once an 80% or greater score is achieved in the FINAL TEST.
In addition, each participant must complete the training on an individual basis. If you ask someone else to go through the program for you, you will not learn the information that will be necessary to protect your health and safety. This will render your certificate null and void.
PART 3 – SKILLS TESTING: In order to become fully certified, you will also need to complete a hands-on training program.
The final portion of our Fire Courses require you to complete the skills testing. Skills must be scheduled within the 2-3 months following completion of the Formal 30-Day Online Training (Part 2). Scheduling is done by emailing Student Services, [email protected]
