BEWARE OF VIRTUAL TRAINING PROVIDERS

BEWARE OF VIRTUAL TRAINING PROVIDERS

You can always tell when a Training Provider is a "Virtual Training Provider" or simply someone running a "Training Company" from his or her garage during nights and on the weekends. Almost anyone can make a good looking website, but you want to be sure you are dealing with an actual Training Company.

Here are some clues to look for:

  • Do they have a physical location? Or just a form you can fill out if you have questions?
  • Do they offer open-enrollment classroom training at their location? Or do they offer another form to fill out so they can find an instructor to come to you?
  • Do they offer other services such as OSHA Consulting? Or do they just sell some online courses, maybe not even theirs?
  • How long have they been in business? Their website may not even tell you.
  • Are they vague about their experience (i.e. we have 4 part-time guys that total 20 years experience)? Do the math.
  • Do they create videos or animations for their training? Or is their training not that professional?
  • Do they have professional narration? Or does one of their wives narrate their courses?
  • Do they have multiple locations? Or do they just tell you the city they live in?

The Web's Most Popular Online OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER Training

Overview

Our OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER - Online course provides in-depth training on how to perform post emergency response activities and cleanups/remediation at industrial sites, Superfund and RCRA corrective action sites, and voluntary cleanups involving hazardous substances. Training includes hazard recognition, exposure limits and risk evaluation for chemical and general site safety concerns. You will review the technology and methods available to monitor and detect hazardous materials, learn how to control and contain chemical spills, establish a decontamination process, and select and use worker protective equipment, among a wide variety of other subjects.

 

Students who take this HAZWOPER training entirely online are those workers who will receive follow-up instruction with site-specific equipment training conducted by their employer, or those who require 40-hour HAZWOPER training but will not use any equipment on the work site.

It should be noted that the 40 Hour HAZWOPER Online training does not allow students the practical experience and ability to handle the tools and equipment available to the HAZWOPER worker. On-site, job-specific equipment training provided by the employer is essential to fulfill the HAZWOPER requirement.

We also offer the OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER Combo course that includes hands-on training as an option.

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

Video Demonstrations

Students complete the OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER training course entirely online. Instead of in-person, hands-on training, students are shown over 100 short video clips that simulate one of our 8-hour hands-on sessions. The video clips demonstrate HAZWOPER equipment in great detail and students have the ability to review the videos as many times as necessary.

 

Package Deals

For workers who supervise other HAZWOPER workers, our OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER Online course can be taken with the OSHA 8 Hour HAZWOPER Supervisor (Initial) training as a package deal as described. Additional information is available in the Discounts tab.

Continuing Education

This course can also be taken for 40 hours (4 CEUs) of EMS Continuing Education (CE) credits.

Additional Training

Workers must receive additional training, when required by Federal, State, or local regulations, on the specific hazards of their job. Additional training in the use of any personal protective equipment or clothing used as part of emergency response is required and should be provided by your employer.

Training Providers should be used to ensure credibility and augment a company's training program. Therefore, in addition to the training provided by an outside party, a student should receive site-specific training supplied 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.

Frequently Asked Questions About This Course

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

The 40 Hour HAZWOPER 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 40 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.

No, our courses are designed so you can start and stop as needed, allowing you to break the training up over a longer period of time. Our system will keep track of your progress, enabling you to resume where you left off upon your next login. It is important that once you start a section, you complete that section or you will need to start that section over from the beginning upon your return.

Yes, you can take the online portion by signing in with your username and password from any location and computer with high-speed internet access. However, each computer does need to meet our basic system requirements for viewing our online courses.
