This 8 hour course is intended to provide information to class participants about the hazards of working with or around hazardous chemicals, including petroleum products. The class is designed to supply the annual refresher all HAZWOPER certified regulations. It will be focused oil spill response. If you are interested and new to HAZWOPER, this is the initial 8 hour training needed for everyone to meet the “first responder operations level” and is the basic level of training to be an IOSA spill response volunteer.
Who should attend:
Current or future IOSA volunteers or staff/volunteers from key partner agencies and organizations. This class is also a good choice for first time volunteers or those just plugging back into IOSA after a break. All IOSA volunteers should be physically fit, able to work for long periods outside in inclement weather, be able to work and move in and around boats, and should enjoy working as part of of a team.
