Spanish Courses (Versions in Spanish)

This OSHA 16 Hour HAZWOPER - Online (Spanish) is for workers with 24 Hour HAZWOPER training who wish to upgrade to the 40 Hour HAZWOPER training level. This version of the course provides training that is entirely online. We also offer a 16 Hour HAZWOPER Upgrade Combo course that includes hands-on training. All HAZWOPER training must be refreshed each year.

Features: 
Certificate of Completion
Mobile Device Ready

Per 29 CFR 1910.120(e)(3)(iv) and 29 CFR 2910.65(e)(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).
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.
Who Should Take All 16 Hours Online?

Students who should take this course entirely online are workers who will use HAZWOPER equipment and receive follow-up training in the use of site-specific equipment from their employer OR those who require an OSHA 40 Hour HAZWOPER certificate but are unlikely to use any HAZWOPER equipment on any worksite.

Most students select the online option for their 16 Hour HAZWOPER upgrade to the 40 Hour HAZWOPER level because they still require site-specific equipment training after they complete the course. Due to the wide variety of equipment available, the equipment used in a hands-on training session may not be the same as the equipment used at your work site.

It should be noted that the online version does not allow students the practical experience and ability to handle the tools and equipment available to the HAZWOPER worker.

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).

Videos Versus Hands-on Training

In this online version, students are shown over 50 short demonstration videos of techniques that would normally be part of an 8-hour hands-on training session. These videos demonstrate HAZWOPER equipment uses and donning/doffing procedures in great detail. Students are permitted, and encouraged, to review the videos as frequently as they like. These videos are required viewing for each student.

About This Course

Following the completion of all training content and achievement of passing scores on all exams, students will need to complete a brief evaluation and confirm his/her identity. After doing so, the student will have access to the course completion certificate.

This fully narrated course is built for success, and includes interactions, exercises, and quiz questions intended to help prepare students for the module exams. Students must answer each quiz question and complete each interaction in order to proceed.

Course Exams

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.

Course Objectives

The objectives for this course are to meet the Federal OSHA HAZWOPER training requirements of 29 CFR 1910.120(e)(3)(i) for General Industry and 29 CFR 1926.65(e)(3)(i) for Construction. This course is also intended to meet any HAZWOPER training requirements for EPA and State OSHA regulations.

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).
Learning Objectives

At the end of this course, students should be able to:

  • Describe different types of respiratory protection for HAZWOPER workers;
  • Describe different types of monitors used to detect hazardous gases;
  • Explain methods for proper care of personal protective equipment;
  • Explain the need for fit testing; and
  • Explain donning/doffing procedures for personal protective equipment.
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 that their employees are adequately trained to do their job.
