What should I expect in Hazmat Operational and Tech classes?
I'm about to start the Tarrant County Fire Academy this summer in Fort Worth, TX. While looking over the fire academy curriculum, the section on Operational Level Hazmat caught my interest. My old EMT-B book has a very small chapter that glances over Introduction to Hazmat, but it really didn't go into much detail.
Once completing fire academy, I was told that I will be Operational-Level Hazmat Certified. About two weeks after graduating from the fire academy, there is a Hazmat Tech course starting.
Can anyone with Hazmat experience give me some feedback on what to expect in both Hazmat Operational and Tech classes? I would like to get a feel on what the classes consist of (besides the general course overviews) because I find the whole aspect of Hazmat interesting.
