It is important that employees complete the refresher training by the expiration date of their certification. If they fail to do this, they will then need to take the annual refresher course or they will need to repeat the initial HAZWOPER training course.
The HAZWOPER 24 and the HAZWOPER 40 certifications last for a total of 12 months. Taking the 8-hour HAZWOPER refresher course will allow the holder to maintain their certification. Annual 8-hour HAZWOPER refresher courses are required for certification maintenance.
The HAZWOPER 8 recertification course is good for 12 months, just like the original certification was good for 12 months. Regular annual 8-hour HAZWOPER refresher courses are required to maintain certification. If the refresher course is not taken, the employee may be required to retake the original 24-hour or 40-hour HAZWOPER training course.
