Overview

This OSHA 16 Hour HAZWOPER Upgrade (to the 40 Hour) - Blended (8 Hours Online/8 Hours Classroom) course is for those workers who have the 24 Hour HAZWOPER training and wish to upgrade to the 40 Hour HAZWOPER level.

Per 29 CFR 1910.120(e)(3)(iv) and 29 CFR 1926.65(e)(3)(iv)

Workers with 24 hours of training who are covered by paragraphs (e)(3)(ii) and (e)(3)(iii) of this section, and who become general site workers or who are required to wear respirators, shall have the additional 16 hours and two days of training necessary to total the training specified in paragraph (e)(3)(i).

This version of the course provides 8 hours of online training coupled with 8 hours of classroom training. We also offer a 16 Hour HAZWOPER Online course that provides training that is entirely online for workers who will receive follow-up training with company-specific equipment or workers who are unlikely to use HAZWOPER equipment on any worksite.

All HAZWOPER training must be refreshed each year.

If students have taken the 24 Hour HAZWOPER from another training provider, appropriate documentation must be provided before a 40 Hour HAZWOPER certificate is issued.

Classroom Training

The classroom portion of this training provides hands-on training for the final 8 hours of the 16-hour upgrade. OSHA requires workers to be adequately trained to use personal protective equipment in a training environment prior to using it in a hazardous work environment. The hands-on classroom session introduces students to examples of specialized equipment and allows them to practice donning, doffing, and using it.

Course Outline

For an easy path to completion and certification, the online portion of this course consists of 8 hours of fully narrated material built in a linear fashion, allowing you to navigate straight through the course without switching pages, searching for the right link or tab to continue. Interactions, exercises, and knowledge checks are also provided to aid the learning experience. Students must answer each knowledge check and complete each interaction in order to proceed. Knowledge checks and interactions are intended to help prepare students for the module exams.

Course Exams

This course has 4 module exams based upon the 4 modules in the online portion. Students are required to complete each exam after completing all the sections within the corresponding module. This allows students to take the corresponding exam while the information is still fresh. THERE IS NO FINAL EXAM.

Each exam consists of 10 questions randomly selected from a large pool of questions. A score of 70% or better is required to pass each exam. Students who do not pass the exam the first time may retake the exam as many times as necessary in order to pass.

Accreditation

This OSHA accepted training is brought to you by a team of OSHA Certified Outreach Trainers and meets the requirements for 29 CFR 1910.120(e)(3)(iv) and 29 CFR 1929.65(e)(3)(iv). Upon completion of this course you will have immediate access to a Safety Unlimited course completion certificate you can download, save, and/or print.

Continuing Education Credits

Per the California Department of Public Health, this course is approved for 16 Contact Hours (1.6 CEUs) of Continuing Education (CE). While these CE units are intended for Registered Environmental Health Specialists (REHS) in California, they are often transferred to other accrediting bodies. Please check with your specific agency for more details and to learn if your agency accepts this course for CE credit (Public Health Accreditation #044).

Training Requirements

When required by OSHA standards, workers must receive additional training on the specific hazards of their job. Training providers should be used to ensure credibility and augment a company's training program.

Additional Training

In addition to the training provided by an outside party, a student should receive site-specific training provided by his or her employer. This training should target the company's unique approach to hazard prevention, including the use of site-specific equipment, health and safety policies, and emergency procedures. As a rule, this company specific training should be well documented.

If a worker who has taken the OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER course entirely online is required to use any of the equipment discussed during their training, more training may be warranted.

The bottom line in ALL SITUATIONS is that employers are required to ensure their employees are trained adequately to do their job.

Frequently Asked Questions About This Course

If you do not find your question here, we do have more FAQs

The 16 Hour HAZWOPER Upgrade Course can be taken entirely online, but keep in mind that students will need to be trained on how to use any protective equipment that they need as part of their job prior to using that equipment on any worksite. This is the case whether the student takes the course online or takes the course in a classroom setting.

The three-day requirement of direct supervision has nothing to do with the training requirement. This requirement is meant to ensure that newly trained employees are not sent to a work site and left unsupervised but get supervised field experience for at least three days. It is not part of their training period; it is part of their job function period.

Our courses are set up to take a specific amount of time. Some students may get through the training more quickly, while others may take longer to complete their training. This course will take around 16 hours to complete.

Remember, this training should be used as an intricate tool in the context of an overall training program; it can be combined with other training throughout the year in order to meet any hour requirements needed.
