HAZWOPER

The HAZWOPER Training Series provides employees with information the HAZWOPER Regulation requires them to receive in their training sessions. By combining various programs in the series, training packages can be configured to help meet all of the OSHA HAZWOPER training requirements.

Programs are available on the following formats:

  • Interactive CD-ROM courses
  • Web-based / E-learning courses
  • DVD programs

Interactive CD-ROM and web-based e-learning courses are typically used for one-on-one training. Courses come with a comprehensive learning management system (LMS). Employees proceed through the courses at their own pace and are actively involved in how the course progresses. The LMS keeps track of the employees’ progress, courses they have taken, test scores and other important information.

The programs contain a Presenter’s Guide, Employee Quizzes, Scheduling and Attendance Forms, and Training Certificates.

Programs are available in English, Spanish, Chinese and Portuguese.
