The HazMat Technician course is designed specifically for fire and rescue personnel who may respond to incidents involving hazardous materials (hazmats) and/or weapons of mass destruction (WMDs).  This Pro Board® accredited course is a 10-day (80 hour), participant-centered, instructor-led training program for first responders.  Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to perform the following at hazardous materials/WMD incidents using the IAFF’s risk-based response process – APIE:

Analyze the incident to determine the complexity of the problem and potential outcomes.
Plan a response including developing response objectives, identifying potential response options, selecting the personal protective equipment (PPE) required and a technical decontamination process, and developing an IAP.
Implement the planned response consistent with local emergency response plans and/or standard operating procedures by performing the duties of the hazmat branch; donning, doffing, and working in PPE; and performing control functions and decontamination.
Evaluate the progress to determine the effectiveness of control and decontamination functions identified in the IAP.

From the Course Catalog

This course is designed to develop a level of competency that will allow the student, operating with other technician-certified individuals, to approach the point of release in order to plug, patch, or otherwise stop a release. The course will also examine the concept of Incident Command to allow the Technician to be able to work effectively in such a system. The course is designed to meet the training responsibilities as outlined by OSHA, CFR 1910.120 and NFPA 472 2013 edition for the Technician Level.
