Hazardous Materials: This course reviews hazardous materials and incidents or emergencies with weapons of mass destruction. This course stresses how personnel can protect themselves, initiate proper responses, and secure the area. Those who complete this training will be able to respond to incidents involving hazardous materials or weapons of mass destruction incidents with the goal of protecting nearby persons, the environment, or property from the effect of the release. In addition, you will learn to use personal protective equipment and implement product control measures.

Industrial Incipient Firefighting: This course is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and skills to perform fire fighting inside or outside of an industrial enclosed structure or building when the fire has not progressed beyond the incipient stage. The course content includes all the knowledge and skills required to initiate communications using facility communications equipment to effectively relay oral or written information; responding to alarms, manually controlling fires and property conservation activities; returning equipment to service; performing fire safety surveys; and completing incident reports.
