OSHA 24 Hour HAZWOPER
Who Should take this course?
Workers who are only occasionally or unlikely to come into contact with hazardous materials, who do not require OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER certification, but are still required to take HAZWOPER training, are best served by taking OSHA 24 Hour HAZWOPER training.
While the OSHA 24 Hour HAZWOPER course provides students with a thorough overview of the equipment available to a HAZWOPER worker, it does not cover the material in the same detail as 40-hour training, nor does it require any hands-on training.
If you take OSHA 24 Hour HAZWOPER training and your job changes, requiring you to have 40 Hour HAZWOPER certification, you can upgrade your 24-hour certificate to a 40-hour certificate by taking the OSHA 16 Hour HAZWOPER Upgrade course. There is no time limit on when the additional 16 hours of training must be added to your 24-hour certificate.
