This FEMA certified 80-hour course will provide state of the art Hazardous Materials Technician training that complies with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120 (q) and NFPA Standard 472 requirements. Course modules include Laws and Regulations, Chemical Properties, NIMS, Emergency Response Planning, HazMat/WMD Monitoring Equipment, Personal Protective Equipment, Respiratory Systems, Decontamination, and modules relating to rail, freight, intermodal, and highway transportation systems. Participants will respond to a number of scenario-based Hazardous Materials or Weapon of Mass Destruction incidents and perform risk/hazard analysis, site assessment, operate, with competency, in the prescribed level of protection, use and interpret monitoring equipment, perform offensive corrective actions, perform decontamination procedures, write and/or have input into the development of reports, identify safety devices, valves, and container types for rail, intermodal, pipeline, fixed facilities, highway, and water vessels used to carry HazMat/WMD. The course provides technical information and includes extensive hands-on practice of planning response actions in dealing with full-scale simulations of HazMat/WMD surface transportation incidents. This course is academically and performance challenging. Designed to prepare participants for the offensive measures necessary to mitigate a HazMat/WMD emergency, participants respond and demonstrate proficiency with non-bulk and bulk packaging, rail cars, cargo tanks, intermodal and portable tanks, and techniques necessary to perform containment and confinement procedures. Participants develop and assist in the development of plans while functioning in an incident command structure with the LMSTI course Students. Balanced classroom and field-work time maximize the learning experience.
