Hybrid Hazmat 160
Online starts September 13, 2021
Hands-on: November 1-6, 2021
This class details the planning, response, and mitigation of hazardous materials. This class will be customized to pay special attention to hazardous materials currently being manufactured and transported in your local communities. Students will be educated on equipment, chemicals, processes, and hazards associated with responding to hazmat incidents. The information contained in the lecture, presentation, and hands-on practicals is gained from first-hands, real-time knowledge encountered during the response to hazmat incidents. 
This hybrid course offers all of the same specifics as the standard 160 Hour Hazmat Technician Course while dividing the class into two parts: online and hands-on. You will find the online, lecture portion, a better fit for those with more demanding schedules. This convenience demands self-reliance for the number of tasks at hand to be completed at specified deadlines. This class meets all of the requirements to sit for the state of Florida's Hazardous Materials Technician exam. Prerequisite: Operations Level Hazmat
Offered in partnership with Cutting Edge Planning and Training, Inc.
