Services FAQs

  • Where is your training located? Do you offer on-site training?
    We are based out of the Greater Cincinnati/Dayton area, but we can travel just about anywhere in the United States to teach our courses! Each Course Description page will state any upcoming courses for that topic. If there are no upcoming courses scheduled in your area, please contact us as we're available to come to you for on-site customized training! *We do not have an employee minimum for on-site training courses*
  • Do you offer online training?
    The value of hands-on, in-person training is priceless and we will strive to always provide the highest quality education to you and your team. Online training and pre-made courses typically lack instructor guidance, feedback, and discussions, which is where participants gain most of their knowledge. Online training also does not provide the critical "hands-on" portion and interaction participants experience during an instructor-led, in-person course. With that being said, we also understand the need for virtual training and are happy to accomodate this. Virtual trainings can be conducted through a Video Call application and course materials/workbooks will be sent by mail. On-site/Job-specific training must be provided by the employers as well. Please contact us to discuss any and all training needs your company has!

  • What is the difference between the 24-Hour and 40-Hour HAZMAT Course?
    The 24-Hour course is for Emergency Responders and the 40-Hour course is better suited for waste site workers and supervisors. Check out our Training Flowchart to help detemine which course best suits your needs! OSHA's HAZWOPER Standard (29 CFR 1910.120) can be broken down into two parts to better understand: Paragraph (e) of the standard covers workers on uncontrolled hazardous waste sites and government controlled clean-up sites. This part of the standard requires general site workers who will wear respirators and be exposed to the most severe hazards to have a minimum of 40 hours off-site training and 3 days on-site training prior to job assignment. For occasional site workers who will not wear respirators, only 24 hours off-site training and 1 day on-site training is required. Our 40-Hour Hazardous Waste Worker course contains additional topics that go more in-depth for environmental safety, handling hazardous waste/clean-up, and site characterization. We recommend this course for all waste site workers and supervisors. Paragraph (q) of the standard covers workers involved in Emergency Response actions not at government controlled waste clean-up sites. A good example of someone who falls under this category would be a Refrigeration Technician at a food manufacturing facility who is on the HAZMAT team and is expected to respond to a release. They must have a minimum of 24 hours of training in specified topics. Our provides participants with the education needed to properly assess and respond to a hazardous substance release. We also provide hands-on activities to allow for familiarity with the equipment used in real responses. If this course is taught at your facility, a mock drill will be coordinated on the final day and participants will act out a release scenario. Please contact us to ask any questions or find out exactly which course is right for your team!

  • Can courses be customized for site-specific hazards and chemicals?
    Every single course we offer can be customized around specific hazards you and your team face.
