HazMat Operations Decon
I went through my hazmat operations class about a year ago in new jersey. Its an 8 hour class that we did part classroom and then we spent 2 days setting up decon and running through decon. my question is is are we now certified to setup and assist and run decon?
anybody in new jersey know where i can find some hard things stating that?

Not knowing your states regs..but according to OSHA, you are now qualified to setup and operate on the decon line.AKA: Mr. Whoo-Whoo

Operations level training is adequate for operating a decon line. However, I remember hearing in my NJ Technician course that a supervisor of a the decon line must be a technician.

I am surprised to hear that the NJ operations class is only 8 hours.
Here in IL, operations personnel may do decon, but the operations certification requires a 45 hour class. This is on top of the 8 hour awareness level certification."We shouldn't be opening firehouses in Baghdad and closing them in New York City."
