When it comes to HAZWOPER training, there are three varieties that these trainings come in. The first is the 40-hour HAZWOPER training which is required if the team member will be exposed to hazardous materials at or exceeding the permissible exposure limits. Many times the people who need this level of training include emergency responders, equipment operators, and others who regularly deal with hazardous materials.

There is also a 24-hour HAZWOPER training option that is designed for those public employees who will have less than the permissible exposure limits. Topics that are covered in both of these trainings include respiratory protection, air monitoring, confined spaces, spill containment, and much more. These trainings are valid for 12 months and then you will need to take the third variety of these trainings: the 8-hour HAZWOPER refresher course. Taking this refresher course will extend your certification another 12 months.
