Overview

Some students may opt to take the final 8 hours of their 40 Hour HAZWOPER training in the classroom, receiving hands-on training in the use of equipment they may use on the worksite. This OSHA 32 Hour HAZWOPER - Online (Spanish) is for workers that need 40 Hour HAZWOPER training but will receive the final 8 hours of hands-on training from another training provider or through their employer.

In some cases, when another training provider does not issue a 40-hour certification, we may be able to do so. However, this is only done when students who have taken the 32 hours of online training are able to provide sufficient proof of having taken the hands-on portion.

All HAZWOPER training must be refreshed each year.

Blended Training

If you are near one of our training locations, you can opt to take both the online and classroom portions with Safety Unlimited. We offer a 32-hour online/8-hour classroom combo option for 40-hour certification.
