40 Hour HAZWOPER Course

On Sale – Price Reduced for a Limited Time!  + Next Years Refresher Free!

This complete 40 Hour Hazwoper Training Course is developed for, and should be taken by those who could be exposed to hazardous substances and materials at the workplace. There are many different forms of workplace HazMat exposure to workers safety and health, but some include clean-up operations, the disposal, treatment, or storage of hazardous substances, emergency response, or hazardous waste operations involving wastes at facilities. This training, which is taken entirely online, has been built to adhere specifically to the OSHA Hazwoper standard 29 CFR 1910.120, and is regularly reviewed for optimum content quality and complete accuracy.

Along with any Hazwoper 40 Hour training, OSHA asks (per 29 CFR 1910.120 (e)(3)(i)) that an employee also receive 3 days of work site specific training from their employer, under the guidance of an experienced supervisor. Every workplace requirement is different, and brings with it it’s own unique hazards and protective equipment required for workers. That’s why it is a good idea, and why OSHA has the requirement, that, in addition to this 40 hour training, you thoroughly cover the specific hazards that are present in the job site you will be working on, with the employer or supervisor at that worksite.

If you don’t need to take the full 40 Hour course or it isn’t required by your employer, please check out our 24 Hour Course. If you have already taken the 40 Hour training, and need to take your annual refresher, we offer an 8 Hour Hazwoper Annual Refresher Course.

We also now offer EM 385 40 Hour Training pursuant to the US Army Corps of Engineers EM 385-1-1 manual.

Free Annual Refresher Course Next Year

To remain active, it’s required that workers and employees who’ve received their 40 Hour Hazwoper certificate need to complete a “refresher” annually. Before the 1 year anniversary of taking our 40 Hour, we’ll send you an email, letting you know it’s time to take the 8 Hour Refresher training. This complete refresher will be provided to you free of charge, along with your certificate and wallet ID card to present to an employer!
