Who Should Take This Course?
This OSHA 16 Hour HAZWOPER Upgrade Online course is for workers with 24 Hour HAZWOPER training who wish to upgrade to the 40 Hour HAZWOPER training level. This version of the course provides training that is entirely online.
We also offer a 16 Hour HAZWOPER Upgrade Combo course that includes hands-on training.
If students have taken the 24 Hour HAZWOPER from another training provider, appropriate documentation must be provided before a 40 Hour HAZWOPER certificate is issued.
Most students select the online option for their 16 Hour HAZWOPER upgrade to the 40 Hour HAZWOPER level because they still require site-specific equipment training after they complete the course. Due the wide variety of equipment available, the equipment used in a hands-on training session may not be the same as the equipment used at your work site.
Students who should take this course entirely online are workers who a) will use HAZWOPER equipment and receive follow-up training in the use of site-specific equipment from their employer; or b) require an OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER certificate but are unlikely to use any HAZWOPER equipment on any worksite.
It should be noted that the online version does not allow students the practical experience and ability to handle the tools and equipment available to the HAZWOPER worker.
