Class description: A 4-hour course satisfying OSHA 1910.120(q)(6)(i) training requirements.  This course involves gathering and understanding MSDS, labeling & other hazard information required by OSHA when chemicals are present in the work place.  This course also concentrates of proper notification, emergency response protocols and scene safety & security.

HAZ-MAT First Responder “Operations” Level

Class description: An 8-hour course satisfying OSHA 1910.120(q)(6)(ii) training requirements. This course involves incident and product control from a defensive mode. The course also covers “hands-on” opportunities for emergency response personnel to practice proper chemical protective clothing, equipment and response.

HAZ-MAT First Responder “Technician” Level I

Class description: A 24-hour course satisfying OSHA 1910.120(q)(6)(iii) training requirements. The course involves incident and product control from a defensive and offensive mode.  “Hand-on” simulations with incident planning, analysis & corrective actions are performed during this course.  The emergency responder participates in incident simulations  to experience control measures.

HAZ-MAT First Responder “Technician” Level II                       

Class description: A 40-hour course satisfying OSHA 1910.120 and N.F.P.A. 471 & 472 training / competency requirements.  This course includes all  requirements for first responder awareness, operational, and technician  levels. “Hands-on” simulations with incident planning, analysis corrective actions are performed during this course.  The emergency  responder participates in incident simulations to experience control measures and basic incident command procedures.

BASIC INCIDENT COMMAND / NIMS TRAINING

Class description: An 8-hour course satisfying OSHA 1910.120 and N.F.P.A. 471 & 472 training / competency requirements.  The National Incident Management System (NIMS) identifies concepts and  principles that answer how to manage emergencies from preparedness to recovery regardless of their cause, size, location or complexity.  NIMS provides a consistent, nationwide approach and vocabulary for multiple agencies or jurisdictions to work together to build, sustain and deliver the core capabilities needed at an emergency scene.  “Table-Top & Excersise” simulations with incident planning, analysis corrective actions are performed during this course.  The emergency  responder participates in incident simulations to experience control measures and basic incident command procedures.
