Not only does the course review the various elements of the HAZWOPER standard, there are also demonstrations as well as "hands-on," practical simulations to meet the experiential requirements of the regulation.

This includes an Environmental or Safety Director or Manager, Emergency Responder, Incident Commander, Safety Trainer, Plant Manager, Production or Maintenance Manager, Public Works or Utilities Director, Fire Chief, Waste Site Supervisor, Waste Treatment Facilitator, Project Supervisor or TSD Facility Supervisor.
