Ive had my 40 hr hazwoper for about 7 years. It pays to have it on the outside, it helps us sell alot of different kinds of work.
Most of it is commonsense, your money ahead because of the .mil background.

My fav is to partner up someone who's been there done that or some one who isnt paying attention. When you go level A and go for a little walk around the first time wait until they are breathing ok and then suggest a little run to get used to the level of effort needed while suited. Right before you take off find a reason the check their air and turn it off,if its got a ringer on it you need to cup it so he doesnt hear it ring. Then start jogging in place and watch.

Ive always had the instuctor in on it because it can be tricky if they panic.

Is it the Supervisor course ?

We have our yearly 8hr refresher course these week. I will be able to see any new standards.

Are you being intergrated to a new job or is this add training for your current commitment ?

This is for a new job.
I don't think the standards invalidate old training, its more of an increase in defining what level a hazmat responder is.





Good luck in new job.

Took the course, thought it had about 4 hours of actual useful info--as someone said, it's all common sense. The guidebook is useless, every entry says "run awaaaaaaayyy"

I did like one of my instructors mnemonics, though: can't remember "health, flammability, reactivity"? Thank just remember "How Far to Run!"

I've been a tech with the Logan Co. team for @ 6 years now. Volunteer, tech level team geared towards transportation emergencies. Neat stuff. We need a fully encapsulated smiley! Like this guy, in a condom!
