8 Hour HAZWOPER Annual Refresher (29 CFR 1910.120) (p) RCRA TSD Operations
Cost: $95 per person
This RCRA HAZWOPER refresher training is designed for individuals who work at RCRA Treatment Storage and Disposal Facilities (TSDF's). U.S. OSHA regulations require an annual refresher for people already certified to respond to incidental releases of hazardous materials. This course satifies a different set of regulatory requirements than our RCRA Hazardous Waste Generator course. U.S. EPA requires training for generators of RCRA hazardous waste. The hazardous waste generator course is vastly different and does not include certification to respond to releases of hazardous waste to the environment. Included in this course is our exclusive HAZWOPER Hands-on Simulator® which OSHA has accepted. Please see the OSHA acceptance letter on our downloads page.
Group discounts available (3 or more people). Please email or call us at 1.888.877.7130 for a quote.
Why Should You Take This Course?
Our HAZWOPER refresher features the only OSHA accepted HAZWOPER training component – HAZWOPER Hands-on Simulator®. If you research prospective training companies online, you will find that we are the only company with anything accepted by OSHA with respect to HAZWOPER training. Others may state their training is OSHA accepted but we are the only company with an OSHA interpretation letter for our simulator. There is a lot of misinformation about HAZWOPER training on the internet today. Stick with a company who is authoritative and professional.
Our advice is to select a training provider who has proven themselves over the years. A well respected training provider should have some communication with OSHA about their courses. Read about our HAZWOPER Hands-on Simulator®.

While this training course is very comprehensive, we highly recommend that additional site-specific training be taken for certain hazardous materials that may be encountered at different sites.
