HAZWOPER Training – 40 Hour

eTraining’s online 40 Hour Hazwoper Training Course has been designed for, and is required to be taken by workers that will potentially be exposed to hazardous substances.  This can include clean-up operations or operations involving hazardous wastes at facilities, and the storage, treatment, or disposal of hazardous substances, as well as emergency response operations.  This course, which is taken entirely online, was built in accordance with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120, the standard for Hazwoper training, and is continually updated to ensure relevance in today’s safety environment.

Please understand that with any Hazwoper 40 Hour training course, OSHA still requires (per 29 CFR 1910.120 (e)(3)(i)) that a student receive a minimum of 3 days actual field experience from their employer, under the direct supervision of a trained experienced supervisor.  Each job site is unique, and can present different hazards and equipment requirements. That is why many of our students who select this Hazwoper 40 Hour online training, couple it with the site-specific field experience from their employer.

Instructor Access

In addition to this and included in the $295 course fee, the student will also have access to a course instructor via email.  Any question a student has about the material covered throughout the course can be emailed directly to and an instructor response is guaranteed within 24 hours.

Downloadable Course Manual

As part of the training, the student will also have access to a downloadable, 400 page PDF manual covering the complete Hazardous waste standard.  This can be very useful if you’d like to explore a specific topic in more detail, for future reference, and to ensure the material is always close at hand.

Personalized Certificate and ID Card

Upon completion, the student will receive a laminated ID card and personalized certificate showing proof of completion.  The ID card will be mailed out to the student within 3 days of passing the final exam, and the certificate can be printed immediately from your computer.

Course Details

This fully narrated course is broken up into 10 parts.  There will be knowledge check quizzes throughout these parts to help keep the learner on pace.  These quizzes will prepare you for the final, which you will take at the end of the course.

After passing the final with a score of 70% or better, you will be able to print a personalized certificate with your name, the course you passed, the date taken, certificate number, as well as our company information should anyone need to verify the authenticity of the certificate.
