    Default Desperately need IFSAC Hazmat Tech class

    I have been unable to locate an 80hr Hazmat Technician class that meets IFSAC and that would be transferable to Colorado till next January.

    I am willing to travel anywhere to get it...I already have operations...

    Any leads?

    80 Hours - Hazardous Materials Technician Course

    Course Duration: 10 Days
    Price: $2,310 USD

    HMT06-01 Jan 16-27, 2006
    HMT06-02 March 6-17, 2006
    HMT06-03 July 10-21, 2006

    This course is limited to 30 students to ensure maximum hands-on participation. The duration of this course is 10 days, 80 hours, divided equally between hands-on and classroom instruction. The bus will depart each morning from the Pueblo Marriott at 6:45 am sharp! Class concludes daily at 4:00 pm. Students have a free weekend between the two training weeks.
    Our Hazmat Technician course is specifically designed to familiarize the student with the widest possible variety of situations the hazardous materials responder may encounter, including railcars, highway vehicles, intermodal containers and small packages. Other modules covered will include site assessment, personal protective equipment, leak control and containment, air monitoring equipment, vapor suppression, and the incident command system.
    Classroom time and field work are carefully balanced to maximize the learning experience. Successful completion of the course will depend on academic measurements, performance checks and field response evaluations.
    Upon completion of the course, the student will receive a certificate of completion from the Emergency Response Training Center of the Hazmat Services department of the Transportation Technology Center, Inc.
    Although this class has been specifically designed to bring students from zero knowledge to the Technician Level in 80 hours of training, Operations training in advance is recommended.
