The objective of this course is to teach students various tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) for responding to Hazmat hazards based off International Standards and Best Practices. These TTPs include surveying facilities, conducting downwind hazard analysis, plume modeling, establishing chemical agent detection monitoring grids, surveying the ground for contamination, and implementing public protective actions. Additionally, students will learn about equipment preventative maintenance and troubleshooting techniques to optimize the life of the equipment. This course will conclude with 5 days of life-like Hazmat Response scenarios to put all newly acquired skills into practice.
Taught to the NFPA 472 Standard - Hazmat Technician Level
