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.
Module exams are conducted after the completion of each module. 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.
The objectives for this course are to meet the Federal OSHA HAZWOPER training requirements of 29 CFR 1910.120(e)(8), or CFR 1910.120(p)(7)(i) for General Industry, and 29 CFR 1926.65(e)(8), or 29 CFR 1926.65(p)(7)(i) for Construction.

Per 29 CFR 1910.120(e)(8) and 29 CFR 1926.65(e)(8)
Employees specified in paragraph (e)(1) of this section, and managers and supervisors specified in paragraph (e)(4) of this section, shall receive eight hours of refresher training annually on the items specified in paragraph (e)(2) and/or (e)(4) of this section, any critique of incidents that have occurred in the past year that can serve as training examples of related work, and other relevant topics.
Per 29 CFR 1910.120(p)(7)(i) and 29 CFR 1926.65(p)(7)(i)
The employer shall develop and implement a training program which is part of the employer's safety and health program, for employees exposed to health hazards or hazardous substances at TSD operations to enable the employees to perform their assigned duties and functions in a safe and healthful manner so as not to endanger themselves or other employees. The initial training shall be for 24 hours and refresher training shall be for eight hours annually. Employees who have received the initial training required by this paragraph shall be given a written certificate attesting that they have successfully completed the necessary training.

For OSHA HAZWOPER section (q) refresher training, we offer these refresher courses:
At the end of this course, students should be able to:
- Re-familiarize themselves with the safety and health procedures used at the workplace;
- Understand the hazards they may confront at the jobsite;
- Identify the controls or PPE necessary to protect themselves from these hazards; and
- Perform assigned duties and functions in a safe and healthful manner.
All HAZWOPER workers are required to refresh their initial HAZWOPER training on an annual basis. This includes HAZWOPER 24-, 40-, and Supervisor (Initial) training.
This course is designed to help workers meet the OSHA 8 Hour HAZWOPER Refresher training requirement for 29 CFR 1910.120(e)(8), or 29 CFR 1910.120(p)(7)(i) for General Industry and 29 CFR 1926.65(e)(8), or 29 CFR 1926.65(p)(7)(i) for Construction. This course is not intended to meet the Federal OSHA HAZWOPER training requirements of 29 CFR 1910.120(q)(8) for General Industry, or 29 CFR 1926.65(q)(8) for Construction. See the Objectives Tab for more information on meeting the refresher requirements for those section.
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.
If this training takes less than 8 hours to complete, it should be combined with other training conducted throughout the year to meet the 8-hour requirement. This additional training can come from hands-on training, training that is job- or company-specific, or even tailgate safety meetings.

Frequently Asked Questions About Online Training
If you do not find your question here, we have more FAQs
This does not mean you must take the initial training all over again. Per OSHA, "If the date for refresher training has lapsed, the need to repeat the initial training must be determined based on the employee's familiarity with safety and health procedures used on site. The employee should take the next available refresher training course. There should be a record in the employee's file indicating why the training has been delayed and when the training will be completed."
No, OSHA would expect a general hazardous waste site worker who is becoming a supervisor or manager to receive at least 16 hours of training during the year they become a supervisor: 8 hours of management and supervisory training in addition to 8 hours of employee refresher training. HAZWOPER requires that supervisors and managers be trained and given supervised field experience to at least the level of the employees who they will oversee, and have at least eight additional hours of specialized training on the topics listed in 1910.120(e)(4).
