OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER
Who Should take this course?
Students looking to take the OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER training from their computer via the internet, we offer a course that can be completed entirely online. By taking the course online, students can avoid traveling or using vacation time, and complete the course at their own pace wherever they have a computer with internet access that meets the courses simple system requirements.
Students that take this course are those workers that a) will receive follow-up instruction with site-specific equipment training from their employer; or b) will not use safety equipment on site.
In lieu of the hands-on training a student would receive in a classroom setting, students will view over 50 short video clips of equipment demonstration. These demonstrations will include methods for donning and doffing, equipment demonstrations, and monitoring and detection devices. Students will have the opportunity to view these videos as often as they like.
Most students select the online option for 40 Hour HAZWOPER training because they still require on-site, site-specific equipment training even after taking a classroom course. This is due to the fact that the equipment used as part of instruction in the classroom may not be the exact equipment the student will use as part of their job.
The bottom line is that you should receive employer-provided training in the use of any equipment you may use as part of your job. This employee-provided training should be well documented.
For those interested in taking a combination of online and hands-on training, we also offer an OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER Hands-on course.
