Physical and On Site Requirements

The HAZMAT First Responder Operations course and the initial HAZWOPER 8-hour Incident Command course are both prerequisites for the HAZWOPER 8-hour Incident Command annual refresher. This 8-hour HAZWOPER refresher course is part of annual training for individuals who oversee a HAZMAT team and manage emergencies of varying severity.

Plan States (approved by U.S. OSHA) must have standards at least as stringent as the Federal HAZWOPER training requirements. These Plan States may have additional training requirements.
