TSCTA’s Hybrid 40-Hour Hazwoper training program covers the Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) Standard that applies to five distinct groups of employers and their employees.
Besides the instructor-led lecture and instructional videos, the program includes an overview of pertinent provisions of EPA standards or laws, decontamination equipment and procedures, and a review of air and contamination monitoring equipment. The training concludes with a class interactive task where students are asked to apply the information and materials provided during the course to mock hazardous scenarios.
This course is held partially remote via Zoom and partially in-person for the required hands-on activities. You must fully complete both lecture and hands-on portions of this course to complete the program.
Students will need access to an internet connection, a computer, or a tablet with access to a web camera, microphone, and download the Zoom app.
